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.

Happy New Year

Greetings on the first day of the new year.  

I hope that your Christmas list to Santa was fulfilled. I asked for some more skill but it has not come to the Christmas stocking yet so I will just have to struggle along.

I think that for the first couple months of this year we should highlight some songs with a "love" theme given that Valentine's Day is coming up in about 6 weeks.  Our club book has a number of songs that fit into this category, including Ain't She Sweet and Hey Good Looking.  The book contains some songs that I don't recall the group working on, including Eight Days a Week.   So that is a resource

Then there are love themed songs that you individually like that are not in our current song book.  There must be thousands of songs in this genre if one includes "falling in love" (Hey Good Looking), "in love" (I love to see you smile) , "falling out of love" (Pretty When New), "love spurned" (One by One), "love gone really bad" (Banks of the Ohio).

So let's spend some time on these songs at our next meeting.  If you like one that is not in our book, bring copies to share.

Hope to see you there.
