What a great kick start to the new season we had last night at The Woolpack Studios? It was so great to see so many familiar faces and to welcome new ones too into out Ukulele Family!
There are loads of events and concerts to look forward to between now and Christmas… so make sure you keep up to date by being on the emailing list (email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on) or ‘like’ our page on Facebook.
I have also updates the Calendar which you can access by going to the tabs at the top of the home page.
We are very lucky to have such talent in our group. This next song ‘You Are Beautiful’ is written by OUOs very own Darren Smith. We started to work on this last night – a lovely song with a nice strumming pattern and tab parts too. The melody is so catchy… I’ve been humming it for weeks!
Have a listen to Darren playing it here (there is also a tutorial for the different parts too…) and listen out for his pet who is obviously wanting to join in
it is pretty exciting to note that we have seven, that’s right, SEVEN gigs between now and our break for August. Check out the new CALENDAR page (top of the home screen) and the updated GIG page for more details. Make a note of them and hopefully you will be able to joins us for some (or all!) of the performances.
After last night’s session I am really happy how well the songs are coming together for Tealbeck (next week!) and the York Ukulele Festival. I will have more travel information for you next week about getting to York (we need to be at the side of the stage in St Samson’s Sq for 15:45.
it is recorded in a slower time so you can play along. it’s pretty funny. i think it will really work and i was so impressed with how people gave it a try last night. tab playing can be tricky, but like everything – you just need to practise!
it is my vision for OUO that we do something fun, unique, interesting and AWESOME! variety is key to this i think and i love your suggestions for songs.
keep practising and see you next monday for TEALBECK!
we’ll meet at the Woolpack between 6pm-6.20pm, walk down together and be back for the York practise at 7.30pm. Please also note i have booked us a rehearsal at the Woolpack on FRIDAY 14th JUNE 7pm for a run through of the York set (which you will not have to pay a sub for!) 🙂
any queries please get in touch….until then my friends, ta ra!
