“we’re going to play this one a little bit faster….” “ooo eck!”

that has to be the quote of the evening….and is still making me chuckle the next morning!

i really put the OUO through their paces last night with 3 new songs and some fast-paced strumming! but what an amazing session? it  was a record breaking orchestra and as always an incredible way to start the working week.

here’s what we did

session 1 6:30pm-7:30pm

LA BAMBA chords and lyrics  LA BAMBA – tab

Blowin’ In the Wind



UMBRELLA – new song! – tutorial to follow…



session 2 7:30pm-8:30pm

ROLLING IN THE DEEP OUO – new song! tutorial to follow….

Sunshine of Your Love (lyrics and chords) Sunshine of Your Love tab


DON’T YOU WANT ME chords+lyrics DON’T YOU WANT ME – tab


so it was fun filled and fast paced once again!


we also discussed the up and coming gig dates (check “GIGS” tab). I would really like everyone to wear a OUO t-shirt when we play our gigs so if you have the intention of playing with us at any of the gigs between now and the summer, please bring a blue (any blue) t-shirt/top to session and i will get it logoed for you. it costs about £8.

next week i will have the set list ready for our gig on 25.03.13.

just a reminder i also do private tuition that might be helpful for those of you who are new to the ukulele….in one or two sessions we can cover the basics and get you playing with confidence in no time. email me to book a lesson (up to 3 people) or for more info

ta ra for now!

  1. Great session Jen – thanks. I mentioned the potential date on 11 May at the Wardrobe, Leeds. Its a benefit event for Breast Cancer and a promo to the Garforth Festival. Dave Evans is putting this together. He can be contacted on 07415 386 001. Interested?

    • hey brett,

      good to see you at the session last night

      unfortunately i cannot do this date as i have already confirmed a gig with the band i play bass in….what a shame. you do say potential though?! is it likely to be a different date? hope so!


  2. 2nd thorts = maybe Umbrella best to leave it out in 3 weeks time, its not like other songs on playlist
