This month’s tunes have been chosen by Ed. He’s picked three songs that he thinks would work well in the group & says let’s give it a try & see what comes out the other end.
As before, the versions of the songs we’ll be using are in the PLUC Box for members (and have been emailed to our newer attendees). Do practice these at home & be ready to play them as a group on Tue 3 March. We’ll then vote upon the one that works the best so we can rehearse it more fully over the coming months.

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 »

For 2015, a different PLUC member will suggest three numbers for us to try out each month. We’ll vote on which one we wish to work up &, by the end of November, should have ten new songs in our repertoire. Anyone wishing to propose a selection – either new ones you just fancy us strumming or oldies from our existing songbook we never get around to playing – let Jeanette know, so we can get this going. Thanks. Read the rest of this entry »
