    Fawn, "good group sing" is like walking into Bath Works or a candle store... One must have lots of items together for that perfect smell we all want in our living space, so lots of Uke

    The girls from Northville had a fun time playing with the group. They enjoyed learning to play so many songs.

    I had a great time last night! We played some really fun songs and our Veterans song is really sounding good. It was nice seeing some new faces and we were treated with a performance of Riptide by some young first time members. Hope you girls will join us again sometime. Lastly, I think the right side of the room was really getting into the Spiderman theme song! Time to practice our Veterans Song and prepare for the recording at Big Sky next month. Hope to see you all in the July 4th parade.

    I am so bummed but I am not going to be able to make it. I picked up a really bad cold over the weekend. I will bring my new strings and starter uke to next month's meet up!

    Bring it to our next meetup (next week) and I will take a look at it for you. If you have over tightened the string you may need a new string. Depending on the strings that are currently on it that may also make it sound better, especially if it is a cheaper uke.

    • Patti S.

      Oh, thank you so much! Yes, it is definitely a cheap one!

      June 18

    • Fawn K.

      No such thing as a cheap uke. Call it a starter uke!

    So! I started to watch You Tube videos on how to get started...and I already jacked up one of the strings (the E string, I think). I will need help.... :)

    June 18

    • moetrout

      It can be really difficult to get the old string back on. The easiest solution would be a new string (or new set of strings). Get a set of aquilla strings and bring them to the next meetup. We can get it strung up for you. Just find me at the meetup I would be happy to help you out.

      Thank you so much! I will do that :)

    Ok Annette. I actually have the courage to try this!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
