Ukulele – Current Situation
We now meet weekly on Zoom the meetings tend to go on for about an hour and a half!. Roughly 50% of of members take part with the others unable or unwilling for various reasons. We start with the usual social gossip, sing as many songs as we can and often have a quiz. The big problem for us using Zoom is that we cannot sing together as a group. It would be like a conference where everyone is talking at the same time. So for each song we have a lead singer and we all play along in our homes individually. Not quite the same thing but better than nothing. The great thing about it is that it keeps us all together and raison d’être for the ukulele group is the social side as much as anything else. Ukuleles somehow keep everyone smiling! Also, it was quite clear that in the few weeks it took to get the whole thing set up few people had played their instruments so it was important to keep them strumming for when were are able to start properly again.
This group meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursday each month from 7.00pm in Tonbridge. No experience needed!
