6th January 2014 – Happy New Year!

It was wonderful to have a sing and play together yesterday evening and, as always, lovely to welcome some new faces to the team!

We had lots of fun playing some new songs together (although we started off with an oldie but goodie – and it was very on theme as the gales blew outside!)

Blowin’ In the Wind

I had a little break over Christmas, which allowed me to listen to a lot of music. One of my rediscoveries was Carole King’s Tapestry. Definitely on my top 10 albums of all time. I love her voice, the harmonies, the lyrics, the production… they’re simply incredible songs. She’s awesome. And there is a cat on the front cover.

So we had a try at our version of

WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW

WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME tab

which is somewhere between Carole King’s version and The Shirelle’s version!

here is a demo so you can have a listen and play a long at home

– MP3 demo

we also looked at these new songs

MY GIRL

those of you who are new to playing the ukulele can miss out the sections highlighted in yellow but keep practising the changes… they will come with time!

MY GIRL – TAB (OUO)

– MP3 demo

In the second session we focussed on

EVER FALLEN IN LOVE

EVER FALLEN IN LOVE TAB

– MP3 demo

which is sounding better and better each time. We looked at a few techniques to get those changes nice and fast, especially between B and E. We will go through this again next week.

So keep up the good work you guys and keep practising!!

Peace out
🙂
