June Get Together on June 9

The next regularly scheduled NWPA Ukulele Get Together is on Wednesday, June 10 from 6:30 – 9:00 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro. Let’s make this Hawaiian Shirt Night.

I am also pleased to announce that we have scheduled two more slo-jam type gatherings for people who would like to work on building their skills, for new players and anyone who would like to try a ukulele for the first time. These will be held once again at Martha and Dave Karle’s home. The first will be on June 25 and the second on July 16. Please e-mail for details and to RSVP for either or both of these events.

Several people have asked about getting T-shirts in our current design. Please e-mail me if you would like to order a shirt so that I have an idea of quantity, can get a current price and an approximate turn around time.

NWPA Ukuleles has been invited to play for the Relay for Life “Survivors Dinner at the Crawford County Fairgrounds on June 27 at 5:00pm and also at he Crawford County Fair in the week of August 23 (date to be announced). There will be an extra practice session for each of these events for those who are interested in participating.

Let’s start our evening on Wed. the 10 with some two & three chord songs as a warm up and then kick it up a notch. Try these songs out:

Don’t Worry Be Happy
If You’re Happy & You Know It
Banks of the Ohio
Buffalo Gals
Camptown Races
Clementine
Doggy in the Window
Down In the Valley
Hukilau
Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie YPDB
Inch By Inch

Please pick one or two more from our list for when we finish these.

Song List for March 31

Just a reminder of our Bonus Ukulele Night on March 31 at Charlie’s Pub and Eatery in Edinboro from 6:30 – 9:00.

I have chosen this playlist because most of the songs are pretty easy 2 & 3 chord songs that will give everyone a chance. The more accomplished players can be working on improving their rhythm while the rest of us work on improving chord changes. And all of us work at having fun!

The last four are songs that I’d like to have the group use for performances pieces if and when we have performances.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on March 31 at Charlie’s from 6:30 – 9:00
