Next Uke session

Hi All
Just a quick note to say that this month’s Ukulele Session is in Langcliffe Institute. It is next Friday (17th November)
Time: 7.00pm to 9.00pm, Cost: £5 per person, as per usual..
I have built a Settle Music songbook (for Uke and Guitar) and have placed a copy in dropbox (you should all have access). And of course there is still the Jim Carey Songbook which  is also on Dropbox and has lots of other songs especially arranged for ukulele.  Both can be loaded to a tablet/ipad or smart device etc.  If you have difficulty accessing dropbox then let me know.
Also we will be going through a few Xmas songs and carols in preparation for the Langcliffe Carol Service.

Phones

Had to make lots of updates to the phone today to retain access to work systems so decided to load FB  messenger too. Been using it on the pc for ages but now I have no place to hide 🙂

Apparently I also have access to Spotify so will be checking that out in the next few days.

Any recommendations?

Next guitar session

Hi All
Friday (10th) sees our next guitar sessions at the Primary School in Settle.
The usual arrangements apply. 7pm to 9pm. Everyone welcome from beginner onwards (parents to stay with juniors please). £5 each (£2.50 juniors).
We’ll be using various song sheets that we have used before as our sources and I have compiled pdf of all the songs which is on Dropbox. (Get in touch if you need me to send you copy).
I’m investigating to see if we can project it to save printing out… But that may be a longer term task.
Look forward to seeing you there.

Today’s music

Been a busy day doing budgets so musical opportunities have been limited.

Did enjoy a feast of youtube clips while at the Gym especially selections from the Fender Stratocaster 50th anniversary concert…. made me want to get mine out!   It may make a guest appearance at the band rehearsal tomorrow…

Planning planning planning

Having some deep thoughts about our next big Settle Music project.
Working title is “Finding folk in the strangest of places”.

The idea is to trawl the catalogues of mainstream artists for folk-like songs, protest songs, traditional subject matter etc. and arranging them to be truly folky. Watch this space for more details.
