“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!

one new song and lots of people!

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….



see ya!
