My ukulele book, titled ‘Get Plucky With the Ukulele’, has been republished with a new title. It is now called ‘Ukulele For Beginners’ (what an original title I hear you cry – apparently it’s been changed so it’s easier for people to find on the internet). Don’t be fooled into buying a copy if you already have ‘Get Plucky’ because it’s the same book. On the other hand, if you don’t have a copy, then I thoroughly recommend you pick one up by clicking on the image below. Plus, it’s a bit cheaper woohoo!
It was hot and so me and Ali decided to have a go at a Donna Summer tune.
It was raining and I had a ukulele and a ruler and some time to spare.
On the 21st April I played a concert with The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at the private 90th birthday party for Queen Elizabeth II. It was attended only by immediate members of the royal family at Windsor Castle and what a wonderfully surreal night it was! It turns out the Queen is a huge George Formby fan (she met him many years ago) and even wanted to be a Patron of the George Formby Society. To help you imagine the scene, below is a picture of a young ukuleleist who looks remarkably like a young Queen Elizabeth (borrowed from the great UkeTeeCee website).
