Today would have been the 71st birthday of George Harrison. This number is allegedly the current top iTunes Beatles’ download. Ukulenny plays a fingerpicking instrumental of Here Comes The Sun:

Seasons greetings to everyone!
Here’s Rocky & Balls’ The Christmas Song Song (& head to the full Ukulele Hunt Xmas playlist if you want more uke festive fun or, if you fancy a jolly sitar take on an old fave, grab this free Magnatune download from Anup):
PS Just a few more days to vote in our 2013 PLUC Member’s Choice Poll. Choose your favourite site & song, as nominated by our club members.
The final club night of the year was our annual Christmas Strumalong at the Jolly Farmers pub, attended by a select number of the group – Anthony, Bob, Chris, Colin, Dan, Ed, James, Jeanette, Jos, Kev, Imogen, Maish, Rufus, Steve & Tina.
As usual, we’d circulated Xmas songs in early Dec & had deliberated at the preceding club night which ones to avoid, I mean play, on the night.
We entertained the pub with our regular PLUC tunes plus a smattering of Christmas numbers to the small but appreciative audience. As ever, we finished with the best song: Mele Kalikimaka.
A time to welcome all the lovely new members who’ve joined us this year; remember all our PLUC absent friends (hoping to see them again very soon); & to say a couple of farewells: to Anthony – moving out of London & will hopefully final a new local group to attend - & Imogen – another newbie who may be working away for a few months in the New Year & said she’d miss us all.
The nominations for 2013 have now all been posted. Here are the two categories, for the public vote by club members & our blog readers. Please see our recent PLUC Member’s Choice 2013 entries for the YouTubes & more info on the nominated sites.
The polls will close on 30 Dec 2013 so the winners can be announced on New Year’s Eve. Happy voting!
NB The polls are now closed. Thank you to all our club members who selected nominations & to everyone who participated in the voting. Results are available here.
Fittingly, I’ve saved this one until last. Look out next time for the actual poll – you’ll have around a week to pick your top sites & songs of the year from those chosen by our members.
My favourite is still the one the evenings end with, simply because it is such a lovely tune and the Uke is probably the best instrument to play it on.
So here is the Ukulele Ensemble of Korea, with their rendition of Aloha ‘Oe:
