    Ahoy there
    Great theme!
    There is no Ukulele club in my region (and I don't think Iceland really has any ukulele clubs...) so you wonderful people are my actual, virtual ukulele club.
    I thought of either going through the forums and finding a song that one of you have done (will do that later in the week) OR I could 'teach' something to my virtual ukulele club, so I made a little intro into open tuning.
    Bob Dylan's Shelter from the Storm is in open-g tuning (from g=g, c=b, e=d, a=g) with the following chords (written out like tab sites do from a to g) A=0034, E=0032, D=0210
    I cover this all in the opening minute of the video - the song itself begins 47sec into the video.
    Tune up and join me in my rendition of

    Good Morning from Sunny Teesside (yes it really is sunny).
    Our wonderful (ahem!) government have decided to impose lockdown - sort of - so we're now stuck indoors most of the time. These online music sessions will be more important than ever.

    Firstly thanks for all your contributions so far. We have had a wonderful selection including rock, folk, jazz, popular, etc. Keep them coming. It was also lovely to welcome back an old member - Hello Gina - good to see you back. If any others are lurking out there, come on in and join in. Everyone is welcome.
    Here is another contribution from me. Stokesley U3A ukuleles (who I've recently joined) do this one and I have done it local folk clubs. Great fun song.


    PS If I've commented on your video and missed you off the playlist, please let me know. by PM for preference but on here if you prefer.

    i love participating in a good old strum and sing - especially to get the early 3 chord new players involved and having fun but if I were still involved in uke groups I'd be more interested in working up some riff skills and blues arrangements which ain't nearly as difficult as folk think...
    4 chords here kinda in the key of E E A F#7 B7
    riff is based on (0430 0000 0220 0000 x3 then the E 2100) x2
    then 2223 2222 2222 2220 x2 2100 x2
    2223 2222 2222 2220 x2 4352 x3 kind of cha cha y 1202
    then the first line to end (I ended on E7 2130

    This is a song I am considering for the band, as it is covered by U2. This People Have the Power by Patti Smith.
    As it is long I experimented with some dynamics to perhaps liven it up a bit.

    Ive got 5 woman that I have been teaching in uke group lessons. Each week I make videos of the songs we are working on so they have a reference or something to play and sing along with. These are all good friends of mine so we spend a lot of time laughing and goofing off but the music part of it is special. We are working on Em at the moment. The Gypsy Rover and Crocodile Rock are the songs for this week. Most of the time these videos are one take unlisted vids just for them.

    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

    Last night was our first attempt at our usual Tuesday night session going online. We used Zoom, and it worked pretty well. The person who set the meeting up had the power to mute or unmute everybody, so we took it in turns to lead a song, with everybody apart from the leader muted. For some this was a scary experience, as they had never sung solo in front of us before, but they all rose to the challenge and felt better for it.

    I may be back later with one of the songs we did.
