PLUC Member’s Choice 2013 – Darren

I like George Elmes (he’s Irish) because he learns most of the stuff from watching videos. I struggle with it on a piece of paper in front of me.

Check out his video of Roy Smeck’s arrangement of Anton Rubinstein’s Melody In F on YouTube below. Read the rest of this entry »

PLUC Member’s Choice – Beatrice

My favourite for 2013 is After Hours by Velvet Underground, because it is so good to rediscover music from the past. It also holds a bit of mystery for me: it is familiar and yet I can’t pinpoint when I heard it.


This is Cheryl Tofsrud performing the song:

For my favourite ukulele tunes, some that I like are:

I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor
The Locomotion – Little Eva
Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood – The Animals
Venus – Shocking Blue
The Man Who Sold The World – David Bowie

PLUC Member’s Choice 2013 – Alan

My nomination is for Chas ‘n’ Dave‘s Ain’t No Pleasing You.

They were never a favourite of mine – in fact I couldn’t stand them. It was only when I came along to PLUC and started to play the song on club nights, I suddenly found myself enjoying the song. Even though I have little experience in playing the Uke, it strikes me as being a brilliant song not only for playing but also for singing. It gets everyone involved and it’s a song you can really “belt out”. A good one for breaking the ice.

PLUC Member’s Choice 2013 – Jos

I think my favourite site has to be Doctor Uke. Not for any special reason or that I think it’s great or anything. Just because it was one of the first I ever came across, it has hundreds of songs on it and it is VERY easy to use and understand.

A favourite tune is a tricky one because I like so many different tunes of different styles for so many different reasons, so I think I’ll abstain from that one if that’s allowed!

All the best.

PLUC Member’s Choice 2013 – Tina

I have a few and one of them is my son’s favourite. I wonder if you will be able to guess which one that is?

I cannot pretend that I am fluent in playing any one of them but they are where my aspirations lie.  Maybe when I can play them well, my singing will improve too (SMILE).
