Bringing Songs...

There was a question about the protocol for bringing songs to uke jam. Anybody at any time is encouraged to bring songs to uke jam. We love new songs. When you bring a new song,here are some things to think about:

1. Bring a dozen copies.

2. Make sure it's relatively clean. Hey, we've got kids here!

3. Make sure it's not as long as Alice's Restaurant

4. The song should have common chords in it. Ebm9#5/G is not a common chord. Songs in the key of C, F, or G are particularly good.

5. If it's not a song people know, be prepared to sing it so we can all learn the melody.

That's it!
