Next month is PLUC’s tenth birthday.

Founder, Simon, is doing us a blast from the past by digging out the original songbooks used for those early sessions. And to contrast with that, the current regulars have voted on their favourite & least favourite numbers of the one hundred & nine tunes we now play, so we will be announcing our latest PLUC Top Ten Tunes & slotting them in too on the night.

If you’re an ex-member who would like to attend the celebratory evening, do get in touch to learn more details & book a place.

Why not whip out your ukes and have a go at Ukulele Hunt’s Annual Chord Quiz?

There are twenty-five questions, covering five different areas – from naming the chord in the diagrams to identifying different chord progressions (that’s where your instrument might come in handy!).

Good luck.

PLUC Weekend Workout

Our newest member, Dave, recently found this useful YouTube which gives a number of simple – but deceptively challenging! – finger independence exercises, from Rob MacKillop.

It’s a short sequence which will help you develop dexterity in your fingers and also, importantly, train your hand to relax & only use as much pressure as needed in forming chords. Dave’s been using this about a week & says it’s definitely helping to loosen up his hand for the tunes he is trying to learn.
