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.

It was a good evening

Well, last night was a nice evening for the local uke world.  Barb, Kay, Cap'n, Rex and myself welcomed Karl to the group.  He has a nice voice and is really welcome.  He is building a uke for his dad (who had one in WWII and had a uke then) so maybe we can see him in our group too.

We have noticed that there are several instances of multiple copies of some of our song sheets, and they are not always in agreement, both in terms of key as well as content.  Some of the songs in the DUH book have been shortened to fit on a page, as one example of the latter.

So I will be undertaking a task of making a new collection, and importantly, finding a way to get this collection available on line.  That way newcomers can pickup the current version of our collection directly from the internet, and we call all have access to the latest version (for example, if we decide to  change the key of a song).  I will always note the latest revision date in the song sheet heading, again to allow us to be sure we are current.  More on this as I work on this task.

Got any nice songs for which you can become the "owner" (& principal song leader) and that is not in our song collection?  If so, send it along to me.
