  1. Daniel says:

    If you can send me the chords for all these songs, I will be happy. thanks……I suppose that you see my e-mail. ;)

  2. Roger Baker says:

    As an intermittant visitor to London I feel a bit left out! Can,t see what is the difficulty or cost of a full mailout to all.
    Well done anyhow, great club
    Roger Baker :-)

      Hey Roger,

      I’m a little surprised about this comment. An email went to everyone on the mailing list. Have you joined one of the mailing lists? If not, please read the text at the top of this page and join the one that’s relevant to you.

      Thank you,


  3. Jeff says:

    I believe Roger is referring to the ’email’: “This is the last email we’ll send to everyone. It’s inefficient to keep in touch with everyone. This is the last email you’ll receive from us unless you click one of the options…”

    • Lorraine Bow says:

      Hey Jeff, fair point. FYI, many people don’t want to hear about Wednesdays at all – they live overseas and are not interested in the London happenings. Lots of people unsubscribed, so, to save spamming people, I’m giving people the choice to opt in or out. Yourself, Roger and everyone else are welcome to opt in or out, depending which future emails you wish to receive. Spam free Ukulele Wednesdays. ;)

  4. Baz says:

    Visited Royal George last night with 3 musical mates and shared a uke. We will be regular participants. Completely brilliant idea. Keep up the good work. Baz.

  5. Kim Lassemillante says:

    I would love to receive the songbook and join in one of your jam sessions.


  6. Dave says:

    Wish I lived nearer, bit of a track from Huddersfield, keep up the good work tho

  7. Paul Cooney says:

    Thanks very much for the songbook.

  8. Raf says:

    I used to love attending Uke Wednesday’s at the Albany. Have recently moved to Wellington, New Zealand. I’ve downloaded the new song book and really love it! Practicing solo for down.

  9. Raf says:

    s{down}{now}. Great song book!

  10. Pat McGrath says:

    Lads & Lassies, First off congratulations on a great site and second sincere thanks for the massive song-book. At last people who understand that smaller (a less image-heavy songbook) is better, IMHO of course!
    I started out on the uke two weeks ago and with largish paws its been a bit of a struggle. My first job was alternative shapes for E & D chords.
    I’m based in Ireland but know London well, so I guess it’s OK just to drop in unannounced.

    Thanks again, Pat.

  11. jay williams says:

    Just noticed u now have audio clips aswell quality , males it so much easier to practice loving the new songbook although it defantly could do with some smiths songs

  12. navarone says:

    how do you know when to stum and what strum pattern with each song? just learning for the first time.

  13. GC says:

    This is a super facility. It’s a drag that I don’t live in London, otherwise I’d be a regular attendant at your sessions. Do you have the means to supply chords for certain numbers? I’ve looked everywhere for “Kiss of love” as performed by Sam Brown but with no success.

  14. […] You should receive the email telling you where the strumalong will be. (Don’t forget your Ukulele Wednesdays Songbook).   Surreptitiously strum with you soon!   UFM […]

  15. fred says:

    have you got a song book for Christmas songs

  16. […] Cheese on a burger anyone?). I was a bit nervous about being able to play any of the songs in the songbook, but the best part about playing in a group was that no one can hear if you make a mistake. I also […]

  17. Christie says:

    It’s been a few years since I’ve been in London (or anywhere in the UK for that matter) so not much likelihood of me getting to a jam session, but THANK YOU for allowing outside folks to download the songbook. I’m just learning to play my ukulele, and I super appreciate how clear and nicely lined up the chords and lyrics are. If/when I get to visit London again I will be sure to look you up and hopefully make it to a session! Thanks again for spreading some ukulele love :)

  18. Max Poston says:

    Thank you! It’s so wonderful to have so many songs that aren’t just guitar tabs with ukulele chord charts pasted on them.

  19. Lynette says:

    Hello. I am having downloading the songbook. I downloaded the Christmas songbook OK. I am new to your site and think that the songbook is fantastic for a newbie like myself. Thank you for having this opportunity to get the chords and lyrics. Fantastic.

  20. Katie says:

    I was wondering if there is an age restriction for these?
    I love the songbook! X

  21. A group of friends have started a uke group and we have met three times and we are hooked. I just found your Ukulele song books. Thank you soo much for sharing it with everyone! I have a question : How do you know what strumming pattern to use? Do you use the same pattern for all the songs? Thanks, Joyce

  22. Fran says:

    How do you request new songs to be added? Also last time I came new songs were played but I can’t see them on the songbook here…? Maybe I’m being dumb haha

  23. […] that, were, should you wish to practice the E chord on the Ukulele, here are a list of songs in the Ukulele Wednesdays Songbook that have the E chord in so that you can practice it on a song or two that you […]

  24. […] are a lot of songs with Bb in them, in the Ukulele Wednesdays Songbook. Give some of these songs a try to help you […]

  25. Dave Salt says:

    Song book is excellent except for lack of The Smiths dirges. Anyone else in Muscat want to get together to murder some of the song book contents?
