Hello all!

We had another fantastic session last night and it was lovely to play outside the Woolpack for 2 whole hours. I am sure our new neighbours at North Bar loved the entertainment and we got some applause from various passers by!

OUO 2 08.07.13

So the first session we had a look at some of our sing a-long specials including

Bye Bye Love (OUO) – NEW!

Under The Boardwalk (OUO)

UNDER THE BOARDWALK TAB

BROWN EYED GIRL TAB (OUO)

which i think you’ll agree is quite a lot to cram into an hour!

then we looked to our Kirkstall gig on Saturday (yes, this Saturday!) and worked on

FUNKYTOWN L+C

PUSH IT L+C

PUSH IT – tab

OUO PUSH IT PUSH IT MP3

TAKE ON ME REVISED MAY 2013

TAKE ON ME MP3

take on me tab

Remember to keep listening to PUSH IT so you are familiar with where the chords drop out. the key to this song is humour, which will come when we feel more confident with it!

So I have mentioned a song I would like to do with the OTLEY A CAPPELLA choir at the Korks gig…and I think it will be an excellent ‘end-of-nighter’. We haven’t had chance to look at it as a group but if you get chance to have a listen then please do. There are only 4 chords and so it is fairly straight forward…download the PDF and have a listen…

One Day Like This OUO

OAC one day like this ONE DAY LIKE THIS MP3

ONE DAY LIKE THIS UKE ONLY copy ONE DAY LIKE THIS UKE ONLY MP3

and we will go through it together on TUESDAY 16th! Remember there is no session on MON 15th as me and Richard will be at the Courthouse with the Junior Ukulele Orchestra and all the other young people we have been working with this term. Please come down and support the event if you can… I know the young people are really excited to play so it would be wonderful to see a packed out room. Show starts at 7:30pm and you can buy your excellent value tickets on the door.

and one last thing I promise!

Please start spreading the word about OUR end of term party! It’s going to be so much fun….there will be music, dancing, singing and fun!!

just come back from a little excursion to ilkley and wandered into WHARFE VALLEY MUSIC shop on leeds road. they had a couple of mid-range mahalo uke’s for sale with deals on too (free gig bag etc) so worth a visit if you’re in the area and wanted to try out some ukuleles.

i got chatting to the lady who’s husband runs the shop and she said how their last 2 years have been the worst for their business. it made me think how easy it is to buy off the internet without a second thought to how it has massively affected little independent businesses such as this one. it would be such a shame to go past next time and see it had closed for good.

anyhow i personally walked away with a new clip on tuner and some guitar strings…i was seriously tempted by the tenor uke they had for sale!!! maybe next time!

so lets not see another empty shop on the high street…SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MUSIC SHOP!!
