Jen sez: We’re looking forward to next week’s meeting and hope you are, too! We’re meeting on TUESDAY, September 13th, at 7pm, in our regular spot: the Community Room at Central Market (4001 N. Lamar Blvd).
Bob, Walter, and I discussed it, and we’d like next week’s meeting to give us a chance to practice many of the songs we’ve worked on over the past months but rarely get time to run through. Some of you may not have even had the chance to play them with the group, if you’ve only been coming to our play-a-longs for a month or two. This meeting will give you a chance to try out any that you missed.
As usual, we’ll warm up with “Three Little Birds” and maybe another familiar-to-us tune or two. We will play one new song to add to our repertoire – Willie Nelson’s “Crazy” – (you may know it as a Patsy Cline song) and then we’ll spend time playing as many of the 16 other songs we’ve enjoyed together as we can. We’ll still break from our songbook towards the end of our meeting to give you a warm and friendly ‘open mic’ audience if you’d be kind enough to play/sing us a tune of your choice!
All songs in the AUS repertoire can be found in our Ukulele Music Library; that includes Willie Nelson’s “Crazy” (which is not to be confused with the Gnarls Barkley “Crazy” we sang last meeting–both are great songs, but you’ll never mistake one for the other).
Are we crazy for playing the ukulele? Possibly.
Bob is bringing a projector, but feel free to print copies of any/all songs in case you don’t have a good view of the projector. See you there!
