Ukulele Union Strum and Sing-Alongs

The Ukulele Union is starting something new and every ukulele enthusiast is invited.  Beginning April 23, we will host a one-hour ukulele strum and sing-along every Monday evening from 5:30 to 6:30 at the UUFD church. Come every week or drop in as the spirit moves you.  As Bob Dunn says, the best way to improve is to play often, so here’s your chance!

How can you participate?   If you have a ukulele, just show up! All skill levels are welcome. Many beginners think a certain level of proficiency is required before strumming with others. This is not true!  Just come as you are. If you only know one chord, play that chord every time it comes around. You will soon learn another and then another and so on. We recommend that you try to learn the C chord as a starting point, then add F and G or G7.  Once you know those three or four chords, you are well on your way to playing many songs.

Another way to prepare?  Consider buying the following two books: The Daily Ukulele and the Daily Ukulele- Leap Year Edition.  Both are available from Amazon.  Local music stores may also have them in stock.

So, bring your uke, your books when you have them, and a music stand if you have one. Or just bring yourself and your uke! Questions? E-mail Kathy Schmidt at
