Welcome to the Tulsa Ukulele Club Website

Welcome to the Tulsa Ukulele Club website. We are a group of people of all ages who enjoy playing the ukulele. We welcome every level of player from beginner to professional. We play a wide variety of music, as diverse as our membership. Right now, if you come to one of our meetings you are going to hear a lot of old time standards, country, folk and blues, possibly some Gospel, but we are welcome to new influences.

While our emphasis is on ukuleles, we welcome other instruments too. Bring your harmonica or guitar and of course, a kazoo is always welcome.

We are a family oriented organization and encourage the entire family to attend, even the little guys, so long as they do not disrupt the meeting. Watch this site for special announcements for meetings when we will be offering free beginner's ukulele lessons.

We have been evaluating several alternative sites for our meetings. Watch the blog postings below for the latest meeting place. At this time (10-17) we are meeting in the lobby of the Cancer Center of America in the first Thursday, have an Open Mike Night and jam on the second Thursday at Burgundy Place and the other Thursdays are jams at Burgundy Place or some other location. Check the blog, the web page or contact us for latest plans.

Thank you for visiting our Blog. You will also find a lot of useful links for songs and instruction material in the Handy Links section on the right side of the page.

We also have a web page that contains a lot of the songs in our song book -- see https://sites.google.com/site/tulsaukuleleclub/

We also have a YouTube channel and a Facebook page ("Tulsa Uke Club").

Please contact us if you have any questions at tulsaukes@gmail.com.

Songs for the holiday season

Greetings ukulele fans.

We are rapidly approaching the holiday season of Thanksgiving, Hanukah and Christmas. We won't be having our usual 4th Tuesday meeting since it is so close to Thanksgiving and the next planned meeting is December 13.

So for that meeting, in this holiday season, I have selected a number of songs, a mix of secular and religious, that we might want to work on at the December meeting. (I did not include any Jewish numbers, but if you wish too, let me know.) These songs have been sent to everyone on my email list and if you did not get it, let me know. And if you like some others, send them along so we can incorporate them into the program too.

I have also included a beginner grade tab sheet for Twinkle Twinkle so you can start on some right hand arpeggios appropriate for the season.

Print out the song sheets and bring them to the December meeting. Hope to see you there.
