2012

Thanks very much to Jack for commandeering the troop of likely suspects and getting this mammoth beast compiled and published.

For your strumming pleasure, we present the 2012 Ukulele Wednesdays Songbook! It was mainly intended for use at our jam nights, but we’re happy if you want to use it at your own too. We’ve put a lot of time into our book, so if you plan to use it, we’d really appreciate if you would let people know where it came from, rather than passing our hard work off as your own… 😉

Would you like to be notified when we update the songbook and news about our jam nights? If so,please join our mailing list here.

If you would like only songbook updates but not news, then please join this mailing list.

Please feel free to Download our 2012 Ukulele Wednesdays Songbook and use it, either at one of our three free jams in London or at your own ukulele jam.
