Hello fellow ukulele enthusiasts,
Always wanted to take part in a Ukulele Flashmob? Been spending sleepless

Hi all,
I've uploaded a great ukulele chard chart that groups chords by key. Great
for understanding chord progressions, transposing and planning chord
substitutions. I may also try to generate a baritone (DGBE) version from
this original, but that will involve a lot of cut & pasting.
Note: If you downloaded the version posted earlier today, this is a

I found the attached on the web and I don't recall it being shared here yet
(Harry?). It's a fantastic resource for showing the chords that are
commonly used in each key and it's arranged so transposing into a new key
is a snap. I expect it'll also be useful for generating chord substitution
ideas.

Hi all,
First, thanks as always to Mark and Sue for another excellent BUG gathering
last night! As they announced, in June we will be featuring songs with a
Canadian connection (written/performed by a Canadian, about Canada, or
whatever connection makes sense to you) to get ready to celebrate Canada

Please pardon the advert-type e-mail my fellow BUGs, but I'm looking to
sell a banjolele I own, and thought some on the list might be interested.

It's an Alabama banjolele that I bought a year-and-a-half ago, for $380
before tax. I'm asking $200, but open to reasonable offers.

You can see and hear it in this video, which I just made:

Sue and Mark and all of you BUGs,

Last night was one of the most fun music nights I have ever enjoyed. Thank you to all of you and especially to Sue and Mark as always for just doing so much for the group. Thanks to all of you who lead songs so magnificently. Any or all of the leaders could have been feature artists. Thanks to all who performed at the "open-mic" - you are all just fantastic to listen to. It was a great night. It felt so good that I had skipped out on a meeting to go to the jam instead. Sometimes we just make good choices.

Hey All,
It's the BUG Slow Jam this week and I'd like to invite you all to be there.
This month we'll be back at the Clocktower Pub in the Glebe.
An interesting and eclectic bunch of songs have been chosen for this jam,
covering most of the twentieth century. Some of you who have come before
might be wondering 'What's new?'. Well, that's a good point.
