SONGS
We play from from the *Daily Ukulele" songbooks (both the yellow book and the blue book), as well as other songbooks, plus songs players bring in each week to share. We would go around the circle taking turns calling out songs from the Daily Uke book currently in use, as the next song we play. You can lead the song, but it's not mandatory you do.

DAILY UKULELE SONGBOOKS
which have songs from many genres and time periods.

*The Daily Ukulele: 365 Songs For Better Living compiled by Jim & Liz Beloff is affectionately known as
'the yellow book."

The Daily Ukulele: Leap Year Edition aka "the blue book."
Both songbooks are used for many ukulele events, by numerous ukulele groups. They have many features to recommend them, including the first note sung, the melody (which is very helpful if you read sheet music and to help singing melody and keeping time (these books provide an excellent way to learn reading music); every song includes a chord diagram for ever chord in the song.

BRING
- a Ukulele
- a sturdy Music Stand (the Daily Ukulele books are heavy and typical music stands collapse, fall over or wear out quickly. You will save money in the long run by investing in a sturdier stand.
- The Daily Ukulele songbook we're using that month
- $2 per person Room Use Fee.
- 20 Copies of each song you bring to play with us. Copies can be returned to you if you like.

Handful of Chords 'in your pocket'
You will find it's more fun if you have learned a handful of basic chords.
If you can play C, C7, A, Am, F, G7 and G chords, you will be able to play many songs.
Use the "Z" or "zud" chord for those you don't know or can't get to in time. "Z" chord : lightly lay your index finger across all four strings while you continue to strum in time to the song. When the next chord you can play comes up, you are ready to play it.

Maintain your momentum. Don't let your uke interests fall by the wayside!
Grab you uke and come let ukulele magic fill your Thursday evenings!
