Winter Wonderland

There's a nice version of Winter Wonderland posted on Ukulele Hunt. I'm planning to bring it to the jam tomorrow. If you have a chance, listen to it and check out the chord sheet. It includes a not often heard intro/verse.

Ukuleles for Peace

Check out Ukuleles for Peace.

From Ukulele Hunt (where you can also find a cool book of uke music, sales of which benefit the project):

The charity is based in Israel and run by Paul Moore who teaches ukulele to Jewish and Arab kids and brings them together in a ukulele orchestra. The goal is to create friendships and links between otherwise entirely separate communities.

The Durham Ukulele Orchestra is in preliminary talks about how we can help. There might be a benefit show in the works. Stay tuned!

(Holiday) Uke Jam

Tomorrow night (Monday, December 15th) is our last jam before Christmas, and the last jam of 2008. I'll be bringing some Christmas tunes. Come on out and bring any holiday tunes, or any songs you'd like to play to bid farewell to 2008!

If anyone is feeling ambitious and inspired, I thought it might be nice to try one of the uke tab solos mentioned in the previous post (below). There's a nice version of Greensleeves (aka What Child is This?). We can all muddle through it together in the second hour.
