Meeting Details:

If we have some new beginners, we’ll spend the first half hour going over the chords, how to hold the ukulele, and basic strumming, and doing some beginner level songs. More experienced members can use this as a warmup, and this is a good time to ask questions if you have any. 

If you don’t have a working printer at home, you can go to any branch location of the library and use one of their computers to print the files. You do have to become a library member (if you aren’t already) and printing is 15 cents per page.  Or you can use the library’s copier to make a copy once you get there, come a little early if you need to do that.

List of things to bring:

  • A printout of the pdf file with our songs for the day and it’s a good idea to bring all the songs from prior meetings so we can play some of the old ones again but at the very least bring this month and last month.  Several members have organized all our previous songs alphabetically in a 3-ring binder.  This is an excellent idea and if everyone will do the same we can use it as a club song book whenever we have time for extra songs.
  • Ukulele and your Tuner (If you don’t have a ukulele yet, you can come and see what it’s all about and learn about the different ukuleles available to choose from.)
  • Music Stand (Optional but nice to have. You can use a chair or bring a folding TV table to put your music on.)
