Welcome West Seattle

Are you ready for the first UKULELE-WikiWiki in West Seattle? I hope so.

It's Sunday the 6th of June and the doors open around 1:45p. We'll start playing at 2:00p until 4:00p.

Remember to bring your SUPA 2010 song books and download all of the files below:
  • Wiki song book --- UWW Song Book Uno.
  • Songs for March, April, May and June
That way you'll have a complete book.

All the downloads are right on top within the sidebar on the left. You'll also find a map if you need to find your way.

I hope to see a bunch of you on Sunday.

Keep Strumming

June Wiki - two new songs for two Wiki's

If you haven't heard the WikiWiki has expanded. Not only do we have our ongoing and popular Ballard WikiWiki for beginners --- the third (3rd) Sunday of each month. We just this month added a WikiWiki in West Seattle on the first (1st) Sunday --- for all levels of player, even the beginner,

That's right... the 'first' Sunday in West Seattle... that's next Sunday the 6th. Don't miss it.

As a beginner, you might feel intimidated... well don't be. Our main book will be the WikiWiki song book you already have, we'll also play from the SUPA 2010 book.... so come on out to West Seattle and join in on the fun. If nothing else you play air ukulele or mute the strings and play rhythm.

For more information about our two WikiWiki's -- like dates, time, directions, go to our new website/blog connection.

We also have two new songs for June... so add them to your Wiki book. (both groups please download)

I thought we would have some fun with a sad love song (aren't they all?) and a fun folk song from the land of OZ.

Here's our June favorites:

May Wiki - Strum Patterns Work shop

Sorry for being a bit late on posting the Workshop downloads... I've been busy putting up a new front page web portal for this blog site and information about our new WikiWiki ukulele song circle happening in West Seattle. Look for a post on this.

May's downloads should be fun.... most of you have asked about how to strum various songs.... well here's our little workshop to show you just that.

The featured songs for our May workshop are:
  • 'Sway' - an easy to play latin number
  • 'White Sandy Beach' - a favorite from Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

We have a new WikiWiki web site and second location

As most of you know SUPA will be leaving West Seattle for Ballard and Phinny. To keep the sound of ukuleles and Aloha spirit in West Seattle... I have decided to expand or little WikiWiki group to add a second song circle in West Seattle for eager beginners and the more advanced player.

The West Seattle Song Circle will gather starting the first (1st) Sunday of July -- July 6th and continue on the first Sunday of the month thereafter. The West Seattle Song Circle will be open to all level of players.

The Beginner's Song Circle in Ballard will still continue to gather the third (3rd) Sunday of each month, our next song circle will be Sunday May 16th.

For more details I encourage you to go to our new web site...

We're growing.....

With SUPA leaving West Seattle without a songcircle, our Ukulele WikiWiki is stepping in.

Starting in June we will be hosting a songcircle, open to all levels of players, the first Sunday of every month. (more info to follow as we iron out the wrinkles)

If you know a few chords, can learn fast, love to learn more, then this will be perfect for you. Not quite a beginner still... maybe intermediate to advanced player, again... come on down.

The Beginner's Ukulele WikiWiki @ Ballard is still every third Sunday... where? At Ballard of course... same time, same place.

I am now in the process of setting up a new blog site for both WikiWiki ventures... so stay tuned for an address change.

For the moment.... this blog page is still good.... and all downloads will be available here.

Keep Strumming
