The Austin Ukulele Society had a fabulous August meeting with a record-setting turnout of nearly 140 ukulele enthusiasts. 🙂 Everyone enjoyed learning to sing and strum the well-loved classic hit, “Ripple,” as we commemorated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Grateful Dead. A special thanks to Charley for sharing the inspiring Playing for Change version of this song and to Gary for providing the tempo on his upright bass. You can download the lyrics and chords for “Ripple” or download a copy of the presentation (what we project up on the wall for all to follow along).
Our ukulele enthusiasts also enjoyed revisiting the fabulous “Wagon Wheel,” as well playing warm-up and closing songs “Three Little Birds” and “On the Road Again.”
We were lucky and privileged to enjoy a wealth of talent on a variety of covers and originals during the open mic portion of the evening – much appreciation to Janet, Cranius, Richard Haas, Bill and Kathy, Cindy, Richard Walters, Jack, and Kevin with his students.
We look forward to seeing you all again for some great ukulele music on September 10th! 🙂
