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.

Updated Song Files


Rex has been doing a lot of work to get our song sheets in order and to pull together a really good list of song numbers that have proven to be popular for the active members.   To be sure that we can all be on the same page in our routine jams, the selected songs are now listed in the web page Resources section in the section called "Lists:.  Check out the list to see that you have the songs noted in your personal ring binder.

Now in the "Songs for Learning" section, are the actual song files, along with a notation as to the release date, or what could be called the "revision" date.  So when you look at the song title, you will see the revision date and if your personal club book version of the song has the same date, you are current, otherwise, you need to update your personal file for that song.

This may seem to be a lot of bother, but it is the only way we can all be on the same page.

Rex and I don't get our jollies trying to keep these files up to date but we do find that if we are all together, using the same resource, we have a much better club meeting.  So you can help by keeping current.

The song list noted has about 40 "core" songs and you will find that the number of songs in the resources section are greater than that number.  You might want to download others for your personal pleasure.  And if enough folks like one of these, we can always add it to the "core" songs.  Nothing is cast in concrete.

Comments are always welcome.
