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.

May 8 Meeting

We will be having our usual club meeting on Tuesday evening.  Mary, Cheri, Kay, Blayne and Rex have made suggestions for a group of core songs to polish and we will surely go over them.  We are always ready to welcome new suggestions too.


You might note that I have added a link to the San Jose uke club songbook web page.  There are a lot of good numbers there, in the format we like.  They have made it easy to select songs that might fit your skill level too by color coding the title, green being the easiest.

And if you are unsure of your best singing key, check out their version of "In an English country garden", which is provided in several keys.


I have also added a link to Richard Gilmann's web page.   He has collected a huge number of links to other web sources that can be useful to us.  The links include such familiar ones as Cordie as well as links to education pages and clubs around the world, most of which have song books.   This is a great site consolidating our resources.

  1. Ralph,

    Missed you at the last meeting.

    I couldn't get the San Jose Songbook to load. Gave me a "server not found" error.
