BOGANI CAFE CIRCLE Sunday, March 18

We’ll be meeting at our regular time, 2:00 – 4:30 at Bogani Cafe.
We’re continuing our musical journey through the blue Beloff Daily Ukulele Leap Year Edition. Our mandate is to attempt every song in the book.

During these sessions, we will all be challenged musically. We’ll play each song once to familiarize ourselves with the rhythm, melody and roadmap. Then we’ll go over it a second (or third) time to reinforce what we’ve just learned. Before we go on to the next song, I’ll ask you to share any tips or insights that you may have for me. Improvement, not perfection is our goal. And fun. Music is to be enjoyed. Let’s all learn to smile!

2:00-2:30 Arrival. Place café order at till. Greet and get to know each other. Tune your ukuleles. Settle in.

2:30-3:30 Song List*

I Just Called to Say I Love You, 155
I Heard It Through the Grapevine, 156
I Love How You Love Me, 158
I Only Want to Be With You, 159
I Saw the Light, 160
I Don’t Know Why (I Just Do), 161
I Think We’re Alone Now, 162
I Wanna Be Free, 163
I Want You Back, 164
I Whistle A Happy Tune, 166
I Wish You Love, 167
I Will Survive, 168

3:30-4:00 Open Mic

This is an opportunity for you to stretch yourself in front of a friendly audience. Prepare a song to perform as a solo, or lead the group in a song of your own choosing. It can be a song we’ve already done, or something new. If you are leading a song that is not in the Blue book, bring along 20 charts.

4:00-4:30 Informal Strum Along with Friends

*The ones we don’t get to this month, we’ll start with next time. Some are quite demanding. I urge you to listen to them with play.riffstation.com

See you at Bogani Cafe!
