    Season 485 - 7 D in a W

    Season 485 - 7 D in a W Hi everyone An ever so slightly cryptic title for this week’s theme - you may remember these number/word puzzles were all the rage a while back. The answer to this one is 7 Days in a Week, which may give you an idea of this week’s theme as well as the duration of this...

    Season 462 - Dare To Be Different - like Charley B

    Season 462 - Dare To Be Different - like Charley B So, I’m a bit boring. I’ve always been a bit boring. I follow the rules. I conform. I never had a detention at school. I’ve always had a sensible haircut, never had any piercings or tattoos and I’ve always worn sensible shoes. I’ve never had a...

    Post your own best Seasons performance of 2020

    I started a thread like this at the end of last year and of the year before, and it worked really well. All each of us needs to do here is select and re-post (not re-record!) the one Seasons vid we did this year of which we are the most proud. Should make for another wonderful collection of...

    Should a host be allowed to end a season on Saturday instead of Sunday?

    There have been several discussions on this in the 2 years I joined the Seasons. As a host I find the second overlapping Sunday rather demoralising as everyone understandably turns their attention and their enthusiasm to the new theme. There’s often only a small trickle of entries and it’s time...

    An original

    Hi all - I don't often post in this sub-forum, but here's an original I'm particularly proud of. I wrote it as a simple uke song for a Seasons entry last year. It fitted another Seasons theme a month or two back, so I decided to rework it with keyboards and rhythm and I asked Kevin (Mezcalero)...

    Season 359 - "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick"

    Let me firstly say to anyone who started watching the intro vid and was instantly put off by me singing, I stop very quickly so you might want to go back and try again! :p "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" was a 1979 UK no.1 for Ian Dury and the Blockheads, and provides a great tagline for my...

    Post your own best performance of 2018

    As a relative newbie here (not sure for how much longer I can keep saying that!) I don’t know if this has been done before, but I thought it might be interesting for us all to select and re-post (not re-record!) the one Seasons vid we each did this year of which we are the most proud. Could make...

    Low G string for tenor uke

    Hi all Until recently I only played concert ukes which I fitted with low G red Aquila strings, which served me well. I recently bought a lovely Kala tenor uke - changed the G string to a low G red tenor Aquila but it snapped within a week. I fitted another - same thing happened after a couple...

    Season 339 - "Let There Be Light"

    Hello everyone, and welcome to my first season as host – I’m expecting great things! I wanted to choose a theme that has some kind of connection to me and my life – I’m a dispensing optician by trade and as the word optician is derived from the word optics, which is the study of light, it seems...

    Greetings from Kent in the UK

    Hi everyone - never tried a stringed instrument until I got my first uke (a Donner Concert DUC-2) about 6 months ago. I learned piano and clarinet as a kid (a long time ago - I’m 51 now), but it was never this much fun. I’ve found all the help I need online - YouTube and song chord websites and...
