We all had such a great night and it was so cool to have the guests sing and dance along to our favourite tunes. A massive thank you to everyone who helped make the night so much fun.

I was so happy to be healthy enough to run last night’s session! I really missed you all last week when I was poorly.

Anyway – we made up for it by having a look at 3 new songs… so many songs in the world to be given the OUO treatment!

We started by looking at these songs in the first session

I ONLY WANT TO BE WITH YOU

POP TRIVIA! Did you know that this Dusty Springfield tune was not only her first release, but it was also performed on the first EVER Top Of The Pops on 1st January 1964!

SLOOP JOHN B

RING OF FIRE tab

RING OF FIRE

PRETTY WOMAN L+C

PRETTY WOMAN – TAB

In the second session we started work on these songs for our up and coming gigs

knopfler

SULTANS OF SWING

SULTANS TAB

I absolutley LOVED seeing so many of the players last night channeling their inner Knopfler to recreate some of his great licks on the uke. Keep playing the tab you guys… it sounded awesome!

Can’t Help Falling in Love With You

See you next week for more!
