Below are the videos from our November BUG Jam and above, the PDF songbook we put together for the night! These videos are our first time through on these songs - we don't workshop or rehearse them ahead of time - but boy do we have messy fun! And isn't that what jamming is all about?!
We play group songs from 7 until 8:30, take a 10 minute break, and then play more group songs and do a few open mic presentations ending at 10:00. Different folks volunteer to lead songs and we're very thankful to all of them! We had an unusually small turnout this time round, only about 65 as opposed to 90+, as the frigid weather and cold/flu viruses kept many away. You'll also notice from the videos that many folk leave at 8:30 to get home to bed - so sad! The "late nighters" (people in other cities that are NOT Ottawa may chuckle at that) who stay on past the break end up with a little more elbow room and get to enjoy LOTS more fun songs!
And for all you folks around the world who might not live near a jam or would like some extra jamming, I've provided the BUG PDF Songbook we used for this jam, so you can play along with the us in all our messy madness wherever you are! AND new this month, you can click on the song title in the SONGLIST at the beginning of the PDF and it will take you directly to the songsheet. At the end of the song, you click on the "BACK TO SONGLIST" link, and it takes you back to the table of contents!
If you're new to ukulele, and want to slow the videos down, just click on the little settings "wheel" in the bottom right-hand corner of the video screen and you can slow the recording down! You'll be able to see these jam videos and the accompanying songbook every month by going to the VIDEOS page.The BUG PDF songbooks prepared for each jam are also posted on the SONG BOOKS page!
