“Wagon Wheel” the September song of the month

For our September 12 meeting (Thursday, 7 – 8:30 p.m., Memorial United Methodist Church), we will play “Wagon Wheel.” Co-authored by Bob Dylan, this song was performed by the Old Crow Medicine Show, but it was made famous by Darius Rucker in this video. (Say, are those the guys from Duck Dynasty?)

Unfortunately, Rucker sings it here in the key of A, but Bob feels that we AUS folks will have an easier time strumming the song in the key of G. Of course, on YouTube you will also find uke players singing any song you can name, so here’s the Carolina Ukulele Ensemble, full of youthful energy, and playing it faster than we will, but in G:

And here’s Mumford and Sons performing it in G as well.

See you on Thursday!
