i don’t know about everyone else but my fingers are only just recovering from friday’s gig and then monday’s 2hrsession of exciting playing!
i really want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who played on friday at the beer festival – i was so happy that so many of you turned up to play and just know that the audience thought we were brilliant. there were so many smily faces singing along!
we all know the sound issues our little ukes have and we struggled to hear ourselves on stage let alone be heard by the audience! the important bit is that we battled through the noise, sweat, cramped conditions and performed like our lives depended on it! i really believe that we can build a great reputation on gigs like that and hope we can do more in the future. every gig is a learning experience – we can only go from strength to strength with all the dedication and hard work that you put in…
so to monday!
we had a lovely evening looking at songs for the up and coming events….
sunday 9th december – otley victorian fayre
monday 10th december – teal beck residential home
monday 17th december – the woolpack christmas party at the courthouse
saturday 15th december – the sela bar, leeds city centre
we looked at these christmas favourites….
and from the Ukulele Christmas Song Book (not my arrangements) we did LAST CHRISTMAS (find the tab i wrote for it here…..Last Christmas TAB) and I WISH IT COULD BE CHRISTMAS EVERYDAY (it had a few mistakes on it so we changed the chord order slightly – but play through it you will get the idea)
then we practised songs the residents from teal beck have requested …
keep playing and see you very soon!
