SEE YOU AGAIN 11th JANUARY 2016 from 7pm FOR NEW SONGS AND A LOT OF UKULELE FUN!
We love a good weather related song here at Otley Ukulele Orchestra!
We have been looking at this song in the 7pm-8pm session and we will be perfoming it with Otley A Cappella choir on 24th July at our summer concert at Korks. Hope you can make it!
Have a listen to the demo I have recorded… hope it will give you a sense of what it will sound like! There are several ukulele parts – 2 chords and 2 tab/fingerpicking. It really adds some depth to the arrangement and sounds lovely in the group.
It was brilliant to welcome back Manitoba Hal to Otley this weekend. He did a very informative and theory based workshop on how to change any song into any key. It was all about the circle of fifths and I really took some practical tips away from it. I always find that songs are not in a good key for me to sing so always spend ages trying to work out how to transpose a song for the group. After the workshop we had a strum-a-long with Roundhay Ukulele Group, which is always fun! Manitoba Hal then performed songs from his new album “Dancing In The Moonlight”. He uses loops and a double necked guitar to get lots of texture into his performance. It was truly captivating.
