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.

Virtual Rebellion 4!

Online event

Direct link to Zoom meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84583951302?pwd=VFRaWHR5ekJSdXVNSFFMazJrcGZRUT09 Meeting ID:[masked] Password: Rebellion Bay Area sheltering at home orders have been extended to June 1, so lets meet again in cyberspace! We'll play out of the Daily Ukulele (Yellow book) and the Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition (Blue book). Please try to have these books with you in some format, because people seem to prefer that I don't post the songs onscreen so that they can see everyone. It was 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 THAT ISN'T IN EITHER THE BLUE BOOK OR THE YELLOW BOOK, EMAIL THE SONG TO ME IN DIGITAL FORMAT **IN ADVANCE** SO THAT I CAN POST IT ON THE SCREEN FOR OTHERS. To participate, you will need to download the Zoom app to whatever device you'll be using (there are Apple, Android, and desktop (Mac and PC) versions). To be seen and heard, you will need a device with a built in camera and microphone or a device to which you have attached a webcam. You can visit Zoom's support center here for more information about how to use Zoom. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101697-Getting-Started There are also Zoom tutorials on YouTube. For additional security, Meetup allows me to post a direct link to our Zoom so that only those who have submitted an RSVP can see it. IF YOU'D LIKE TO PARTICIPATE, PLEASE RSVP SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE ACCESS TO THE DIRECT LINK. I've posted a direct link to the Zoom meeting. The direct link appears under the heading "Location." If you have RSVPed, you will be able to see and use the link. On desktops, the link appears to the right of the photo of the Brady Bunch, who were obviously using Zoom even before it was invented. I've also posted the direct link, Meeting ID, and Password at the top of this description of the meeting. I hope to see you online!
