As today is Ringo Starr’s 75th birthday, here’s a nicely done version of the Harrison – Starr composition & my favourite of his solo numbers, Photograph, from LeoHareMusic. Remember to say “Peace & Love!” at midday. But don’t ask him for his autograph!

Here’s a fascinating stop-frame animated YouTube from Vi Hart talking about how musical notes are made up of different frequencies. It uses an unfretted instrument (viola) to show how you can work out where along the fingerboard the different notes appear, so you can see how this translates to the uke & why the frets are where they are.

PLUC 2015 Top Ten – March

PLUC Club Night Jan 2013 - Ed

Ed – Jan 2013

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. Read the rest of this entry »
