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.
There are plenty of ukulele cover versions of all of them out there, especially the third song, but here are a selection to help set the scene.
Song One – Blueberry Hill – Fats Domino (& many others). Here’s Natalie Steiner with her version:
Song Two – Summer in The City – The Lovin’ Spoonful. Cover by Hastings pair, vallelectro:
Song Three – Mr Tambourine Man – originally by Bob Dylan, with the The Byrds taking it to number one. Ken Middleton makes it his own here:
