OK, our next meeting is coming up, and we might as well plan what we want to play. It has been suggested that the first 2 or 3 warm up songs be singing/ strum songs. So, for those of you who have a hankering for a song or so in that category, make your preferences known, so we can come prepared. 

We should start plannig on what to play for the next YMCA showcase as well. Last time we decided that 2 instrumentals and one sing-a-long was a good combination. If we can choose the sing-a-long song, I can let Lidia know and she can spread the music to the other musicans in the show. I haven't heard the date yet, but it should be in March, on one of the Saturdays. Let's nominate 5 songs to consider, and keep the best 3. The sing-a-longs should be in a key we can comforably sing in, and not have too many fancy chords. We want it to be a guitar friendly experience. Maybe check out songs from Daily Ukulele vols 1 and 2.

So email me, or comment on the blog here with your suggestions.
