Groundhog Day has gone past! We know that all the groundhogs down in their dens have been practicing their ukuleles, just as we TUG folks get our performances ready to play. Next one is Feb 9, and we hope we see you there. Please join us! Each Tuesday at 7:00pm CST we have a (very) casual Online Open Mic – we play a couple of songs together, and then folks get an opportunity to play for the group. If you’re not on the mailing list, shoot us an email at email@example.com.
Ready to Log In? If you’d like to log into our Tuesday, February 9 Zoom meeting at 7 p.m., here’s how to do it. You don’t need to perform a song–you can listen or strum along–and we usually provide a chart of the lyrics and chords. But we’re always happy to have you perform for the group. Join us!
Join the Zoom Meeting on Tues, February 9, 7 p.m.–just click on this link and follow the buttons (say “Yes” to the audio and video):
We used to email people invitations to our Zoom meetings, but since they don’t change, the instructions are below. We also capture the meetings on video – OnLine Open Mic Videos.
We also have play along videos – check out the Member Videos and the Spring 2020 Songbook videos. And since we’re all pretty much sitting at home most of the time – this is a good chance to work on some new strums with our TUG Strum Class videos. We’re adding videos (and other stuff) almost every day – so check back.
We’ll be updating our calendar with local online events – and check out Ukulele Magazine’s Live Stream Events Calendar – lots of great stuff going on in the ukulele world.
Take care – and keep playing.
We’re a group of uke players who wish we could meet each Tuesday at 7:00pm at The Hancock Recreation Center – 811 E. 41st Street, Austin, TX. (Hancock Rec Center Web). It’ll happen again, we hope, and we’ll let you know when.
We open our meetings by playing a couple of songs that we haven’t played for a while. Then we play a few songs from our current, and ever-changing quarterly songbook. Folks bring in songs they like and we try new songs – we’re open to anything! We project the song sheets on the wall – and we have loaner ukes at every meeting – so you don’t need anything! At the end of each quarter we pull a dozen or so songs from our current songbook, print song sheets, and have an open uke jam at a local watering hole – we call it a UkeAlong. We take our loaner ukes and usually get some bystanders involved – it’s a lot of fun.
From 6:30pm to 7:00pm each Tuesday we have a gentle warm up where we play one and two-chord songs.
If you have any questions drop us an email – firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re very informal, and this is a friendly group – so come out and play ukes with us.
