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.

Rambling along

I was just rambling along this morning and I wondered if one could come up with a story about the different size ukes. Here is my take.

Soprano. Like a young girl, lively, full of fun and optimism, but not yet fully developed. Young, bright voice.

Concert. A young lady, with all the proper traits, sometimes dressed out with a lot of bling, but not yet fully mature. Voice is getting a bit more mature.

Tenor. A matured woman, confident, willing to be seen and heard, sometimes bright and gay (high g) and sometimes a bit dark (low g) depending on the mood. Can be in the spotlight with or without a lot of bling or be happy in solitude.

Baritone. The male figure in this family. Generally best kept in the background in a support role but willing to star when needed.

What is yours?
