The Austin Ukulele Society’s July meeting definitely left us all in awe (awe, awe) as a record-breaking 115 members had a blast playing Katy Perry’s 2010 mega-hit “Firework.” Bob introduced alternate strumming and vocal variations which made the song both interesting to learn and fun to play. You can download the lyrics and chords for “Firework” or download a copy of the presentation (what we project up on the wall for all to follow along).
The open mic portion of the meeting was an absolute treat, as we heard a variety of songs played by Liam, Luke, Anna, Leta and her Australian friend, Jennifer, and Alyssa. And the talented Elaine introduced us to the fabulous Swagerty Treholipee!
The second Thursday of the month truly is a wonderful chance to make and hear great ukulele music with our Austin area friends, and we look forward to the August 13th meeting! 🙂
