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!  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=related ) . 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!!
