Keep on Uke’n

Whilst we are waiting to see how the corona crisis plays out and start our meetings again in a safe and happy environment, let’s not forget to

‘Uke up our Lives’

Playing at home and alone can leave us without inspiration and make us forget what a wonderful, fun and people friendly instrument and community the ukulele world is.

But don’t forget, amongst the sharks and commercial moneymakers targeting our community there are plenty of non-commercial groups (like ourselves) out there, offering resources and support to the ukulele world.

If you are looking for a bit of inspiration outside of our GUS songbooks, you could do a lot worse than check out Ukulele-tabs,

an open and free resource for the ukulele community full of songs and tips for ukulele players waiting for their clubs to reopen.

Here is the link https://www.ukulele-tabs.com/

Keep on Uke’n and stay safe folks

We tried a meeting two weeks ago in the beautuful rose-garden of the Pioenpark hwere in Groningen and it went very well. We had lots of fun singing and playing GUS songs and seeing our ukulele friend for the first time in a while. Park visitors loved it and so did we.

Therefore, we will be holding our next GUS meeting in the rose-garden of the Pioenpark, Groningen (9713 RR Groningen) on SUNDAY the 5th of july from 3 o’clock until 5 o’clock. (unless there is rain)

Brng your uke and tuner, a music stand (if you have one) and your GUS books and lets get this show on the go!!

Of course, as always, our GUS meeting are free and everybody is welcome to come along and have a go.

Let’s start sunday the Ukulele way

Keep on Uke’n
