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
BARBARA ANN BARBARA ANN TAB – new song!
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
DELILAH Delilah 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!
….and so does our little ukulele family!
In our first session last night (which is suitable for learners, enthusiasts and anyone who wants to have a sing and some fun!) we covered the following songs, which you can click on to see the PDF of the music!
I Walk the Line (amended) I Walk the Line
Blowin’ In the Wind
Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On Whole Lotta Shakin Goin Lead
FROM ME TO YOU – new song! we will be looking at this in more detail next week!
in the second session, we devoted the time to 2 new songs. the song choices have been inspired by orchestra members and arranged with performances in mind so have some nice picking parts as well as strumming. in one hour we really got to terms with the songs and feedback was excellent; it is always a nerve-wracking moment when i present i new song to the group!
Sunshine of Your Love (lyrics and chords) – YAY! ukuleles ROCK!
Sunshine of Your Love tab
i will post audio/video of these asap so you can have a listen and play along at home! so more on these next week!
on a little aside – if you would like to take part in a performance in the next few months (dates are coming in!) then i would love for us all to wear an OUO emblazoned top! please bring a blue (any plain blue) top that can be printed on along to the next session so i can get you logoed up!!
have a good week my friends!

what an incredible evening last night – and the fact that so many came despite the gales and horizontal rain! it was lovely to welcome some new faces too.
inspired by the weather….we had a look at Blowin’ In the Wind, a three chord beauty of a song that is great one to get to help you get to grips with G and D especially.
so final arrangements are in place for our gig on saturday – if you’re playing, we’re meeting at the woolpack at 1.30pm (if you want a lift) or 2pm at the Trinity Church in Bramley. try to wear blue on your top half if you don’t have a OUO t-shirt and tell your friends to come – £6 (for charity) for the concert AND afternoon tea! what better way to spend a wintry saturday?? we have some great new songs for you that we have been working on and a surprise or two as well!
and no blog post would be complete without a bit of bob….
