Happy 2016!

Happy New Year to all PLUC members & readers of our blog. This year’s PLUC 2016 Calendar gives a selection of alternative (moveable) chord shapes.

As usual, WordPress have produced stats for 2015 to show our most popular articles & from where we receive our visitors. You can also compare the 2014 & 2013 reports.

If you’ve received a ukulele for Christmas or just bought one, do read our New Uke For Xmas & look round our site as there are plenty of useful beginners’ tips; links to free resources & songbooks. As always, new members are very welcome to attend our group, whatever their level of playing. We’re back at the Lewis Club on Tue 5 Jan 2016.

PLUC 2015 Top Ten – February – The Winner

Voting for our new February song took place at this week’s club night. We were originally going to have an on-line vote afterwards but, once we heard Colin’s McCartney bass line & Chris’s soloing, Something was the clear winner. So we’ll be rehearsing it for the rest of the month to ensure it’s in our repertoire. Very fitting, as George Harrison’s birthday is this month. Read the rest of this entry »
