how about that for a headline eh?!

but first things first! hello everyone!

well we had a select gathering on monday evening but we put the hour to good use and learnt a new song (JAMBALAYA!) and a new chord (D7!).

i am afraid to say i am without ukulele today so i couldn’t record any audio of how the song goes…i will hopefully do so before next monday!

but it is a pretty cool reason i am without uke….hester goodman of the ukulele orchestra of great britain borrowed it today as she locked hers in the town hall overnight and they needed one for rehearsal today! ย we went to the concert last night in leeds and it was AWESOME! we were on the fifth row so i could see everything that was going on. the sound they produced was really incredible – lots of interesting rhythmic and melodic parts happening as well as lovely vocal harmonies. i especially enjoyed their version of bang bang (nancy sinatra http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5Xl0Qry-hA&feature=relatedย ) . so we met 5/8 of the band in the victoria after the concert and they were such lovely guys. i was talking about our very own otley ukulele orchestra with them and before i knew it (and after a couple of pints!) i had offered my ukulele up for them to use! all in all a pretty cool evening and now my ukulele has been played by the UOGB!!
