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
