March 10, 2016: We’re On the Edge!

Lady GagaA fantastic group of ukulele aficiandos and novices alike got together on a rainy spring evening to enjoy strumming and singing together. As always, we kicked things off with Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds.” Afterward, Bob led the group in learning some fun strumming patterns as we played and sang Lady Gaga’s 2011 megahit “The Edge of Glory.” It was an unfamiliar song for some, but after a bit of practice, the group sounded like they’d been singing along with Lady Gaga for years!

You can download the lyrics and chords for “The Edge of Glory” or download a copy of the presentation (what we project up on the wall for all to follow along).

As always, we enjoyed a wonderful variety of talented folks during the open mic portion of the eve – a hearty thank you to Janet, Kevin Carroll and his Ukestra, Anna and John, Richard, Sho, Walter and Helen for their terrific performances.

Additionally, we’d like to thank the talented Jacob Borshard for bringing fantastic silk screen prints of the upcoming “Uketania Forever” showcase, along with 3D glasses to use with the image. We hope to see you all on March 31st at the Sahara Lounge!

And, of course, we look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday, April 14th, back here for our monthly get-together.
