Macclesfield Ukulele Club © Safewire Limited 2014
On the move …..
Once a month we played at the Boarhound, now renamed Silk Trader. The atmosphere has changed so we’re looking around. What with the Castle closing we could be any where! (See right →)
We have meetings every Wednesday. Since the Castle has closed we are looking at alternatives. From Wed 21-Jan-15 we are trying:
Mill Street, Macclesfield
The Ukulele is one of the easiest instruments to play and least expensive to buy. If you’ve played a guitar before then it is like an easier version and if you haven’t then there are easy to follow chord diagrams that will soon have you strumming away. Many Ukuleles are symmetrical so they can be strung for left handed, as well as right handed, use.
The song scroller lets you play songs that scroll up the screen so you don’t have to have the words and chords small enough to all fit on the screen, tricky while you’re playing your uke. You can change the format so you can see chord diagrams or just the letters above the words. Click on the underlined heading above to open a new window containing the songs menu. You can even add your own songs if you request a username and password using the ‘Contact Us’ page.
We have a growing library of song sheets in PDF format. These can be read use Adobe Reader which is already present on most computers or is freely available (Click here for details).
Some of the songs have been created from the song scroller (above) ‘Copy’ option. Other have been hand written or copied from publically available sources. Some are single songs so the title is the name of the song. Others are compilations of many songs.
