What we're about

The Ukulele Rebellion has begun! Join us at our various monthly meetings (and other events).

We are an educational group, seeking to teach beginners and beyond to play the ukulele. Our primary songbooks are The Daily Ukulele (the Yellow Book) and The Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition (the Blue Book) published by Flea Market Music.

We also play some songs from chord/lyric sheets that can be downloaded (see below).

We ask for a $5 donation per meeting to pay for Meetup.com site maintenance and other expenses.

If you can print out your own copies of the "alternate" songs from the Files section of the group (Under "More" above), that would be fabulous! The songs for each meetup that have been requested (both new and old) are in a file with the meetup's date. The whole book is under "Rebellious Songbook." The Xmas songs are under "Rebellious Xmas Songs."

Thanks, and we hope to see you strumming along with us.

Upcoming events (1)

Virtual Ukulele Rebellion 65! Celebrating Inspiration and Encouragement!

Link visible for attendees

Let's give ourselves a collective pep talk by sharing songs that inspire and encourage us. We'll play music from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm PDT.

Zoom information:
Due to recent Zoombombing, I'm no longer posting the Zoom link publicly in this "Details" section of our event pages. To view the Zoom link, please RSVP for this meeting. (Note: The meetup site is currently not accepting Zoom URLs for some reason. I will monitor this issue and find another way to get the Zoom link to those who RSVP for this meeting if the problem is not resolved.)
You can also email me for the link at [masked]

Please volunteer to lead a song or two. It's always nice hearing other people singing and playing, so we'll take turns leading songs again, like we do at our in-person meetups. Feel free to suggest a song, even if you don't want to lead it.

If you'd like to lead a song, please let me know, either by posting here in the comments or by email, which song(s) you would like to lead. The cut-off time for requesting to lead a song is THE TUESDAY BEFORE THE MEETING (for this meeting, Tuesday August 30), even if you're going to be leading a song from one of the Daily Ukulele books. I'll post a songlist here in advance of our meeting.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO LEAD A SONG USING SHEET MUSIC OR A CHORD CHART THAT ISN'T IN EITHER THE YELLOW BOOK OR THE BLUE BOOK, EMAIL THE DOCUMENT TO ME IN DIGITAL FORMAT IN ADVANCE SO THAT I CAN POST IT ON THE SCREEN FOR OTHERS.

PLEASE NOTE: To accommodate all first song requests, we may not have time to get to all second (or third) song requests. When asking to lead more than one song, please indicate your first and second choices to ensure that, if we can't get to your second request, the song you'd most like to lead is included in that evening's song list. Thank you in advance for your willingness to lead songs and your understanding about how the song list for each meeting is prepared.

You can reach me by email at [masked]
