Well, they asked for a challenge, and yet got one!
I launched the new song book for Raunds Ukulele Orchestra tonight and we had great fun playing through some of the songs. The new book is a collection of songs from a range of genres and styles. I’m particularly excited that we’re trying some of the folk songs from Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger session, one of my favourite albums. There’s also some Kirsty MacColl and some Joe Brown.
The challenge? Well, some new chords, some rather fast changes, some me riffs, some slides…oh yeah, and a key change thrown in for good measure!
It’s all good fun, and we have a great time everytime we meet and play. Te challenge just makes it even more so!
