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.

A sing-along site

Here is a site out of the Netherlands that has a large number of songs arranged for a play-along mode.  Select the tuning key -- C, or G for the baritone.  (D, is also available but most of us do not use that option).  Click on a song, click on Open and then the start icon.   You will see a video of someone(or a group) doing the song, a lower bar scrolling along with the vocals and the chords, along with a fretboard with the fingering positions showing the chords that should be played at that time.

I found this site a long time ago but I just looked at all the songs and they have really enlarged the song list.

Going over some of these songs is great fun and educational as well.  One thing that is good -- not all the songs are in the key of C!  Check it out.

For future convenience, I have added a link to this site in the Handy Links section.
