On a stormy March evening, a cheerful group of over 100 Austin Ukulele Society members gathered to make music together. The meeting started off with introductions and some local ukulele music show updates, and the group enjoyed warming up with “Three Little Birds.” Bob then performed Jason Mraz’s 2007 (ukulele featured!) mega-hit tune “I’m Yours” for us, to give us a preview of the arrangement we’d all soon be playing. Afterward, we went through some practice drills and worked out harmonies on the last chorus. We then put it all together, played it through, and recorded a video to keep our YouTube stardom going! 🙂
We’re dedicating our performance to Jill and Sam of Telluride, CO. Jill plays in a ukulele band in Telluride called the Ukuladies and she and Sam are engaged to be married in July! Best wishes to you!
To play along with us, you can download the lyrics and chords for “I’m Yours” or download a copy of the presentation (what we project on the screen for all to follow along, including exercises and drills).
The open mic participants – Vince, Richard W., Richard H., John. and Cindy – were absolutely wonderful and shared great covers and originals with us.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone at our next monthly meeting on Thursday, April 13! 🙂
