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.

Vintage music source

Some of you may like what can be called vintage music -- material from the late 1800's to about 1940 or so.  Ian has made it a hobby of collecting and scanning old sheet music and old music book material and put them in a pair of DVDs.  These are not video DVDs, but data DVDs, full of pdfs of the sheet music.  Much is arranged and show ukulele chords (some with fingering in C, some in D tuning), some show guitar chords and fingering.

All told there are about 7600 songs in the two DVDs, some of which are probably duplicates, but even with that, this is a huge resource for those who like this material.

This web page has a link to the song index and a link to order the DVDs.  For $15, one gets two DVDs packed with vintage material.  A fantastic resource for those interested in this music.
