• What we'll do
Aloha Ukulele Friends ....

We'll be starting a new year of ukulele meetups on January 12th, 2019! We are looking forward to seeing our familiar Ukulele Friends and, if you received the gift of ukulele over the holidays, please consider joining us...ukulele is so much fun with a group. As always, if you have any questions about the group, or ukulele in general feel free to ask by using the message feature here on Meetups. We'll post the songs for the Meetup soon, so check back.

Below are the songs for the first half of the meet up, in the order they'll be played in, plus the three new songs we'll be learning, 'Locomotion', 'Deep Ellum Blues' and Rock Island Line. If your not familiar with a particular song, YouTube is a fine place to hear them, and often there are ukulele tutorials there as well.

After we play these songs, we'll take a break and enjoy some refreshments, then after the break everyone will have a chance to pick their favorite song out of our list and we'll all play along. If you wish, bring a treat to share with group. (Finger food, cookies, fruit, etc.)

If possible, please print out the songs and bring them with you to the meetup. If you aren't able to print the songs, no problem, we'll sit you down next to a friendly person with the music on an Ipad to share. If you have a music stand please bring it along, if not, no problem, the studio has a few that are available to borrow.

We'll also email out the songs soon to those on our email list. If you'd like to have them emailed, please message us your address here on Meetups.
