Hi Fellow Strummers,
It's time to start practicing some favorite holiday songs for our next session on Saturday, December 16, 3:00 p.m., at Separk Music.  At last month's gathering we tentatively discussed enjoying a few refreshments after singing but I discovered that Separk has student recitals on that same day.  Shortly after we finish our session, their students begin arriving to start warm up exercises.  So let's postpone our festivities and have a Midwinter's Celebration in January or February to warm our spirits during the cold months.
If folks want to continue our sessions into the new year, let's continue to meet on the third Saturday of each month at 3:00 p.m. at Separk.  The dates would be:
January 20
February 17
March 17 (St. Paddy's Day: conflicts?)
April 21
The holiday songs are attached. We may not have time to sing all of them, so you will have some tunes to play during December.  Most of the them are relatively short, and I have paired some of them together to add a little variety to our playing and singing.  I am delighted to have finally discovered a ukulele site that allows me to edit songs, transpose keys and create pdf's with chord symbols over the words.  I think you will find the new format helpful for more efficient chording.  I  ask for your patience as I try to become more skilled with the program.

These songs are in the familiar keys of C, F and G.  For some of them I had to chose a key that was easier to play over one that was more comfortable to sing.  Also, even though songs primarily use familiar chords, a few require frequent changes between the chords.  If you have time, try playing through the songs once or twice to help you anticipate and change chords in time with the tempo.  But please do not let a song frustrate you.  If you find you are having trouble with one, leave out some of the chords as you sing or just move on to another tune.  I want you to enjoy your ukulele and our sessions!
Here are the medleys and singles:

1. Deck The Halls
2. Rudolph / Frosty
3. Blue Christmas / White Christmas
4. Santa Claus Is Coming / Here Comes S.C.
5. Silver Bells / It's Beginning To Look
6. Mele Kalikimaka--(Two versions: one for the group, one for 
            adventurous)
7. Jingle Bells / Jingle Bell Rock / Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
8. Let It Snow / Winter Wonderland--(Lots of easy chord changes)
9. The Christmas Song ("Chestnuts roasting...")--(Nice minor chord progressions for              the adventurous)
10. Have Yourself A Merry / I'll Be Home 
11. We Wish You / Auld Lang Syne
 
I'm looking forward to seeing lots of you on the 16th--hope you can make it!
Take care,
Dane Perry and the Separk Staff
