HUG Shirts

Hey All,

I’m gonna put in the order for T-Shirts this week. 14 Men’s shirts & 13 Women’s shirts (sorry, no V-Neck). These are for the people who paid at last month’s HUG.

For those who would like to get in on this order, you can Paypal $20.00 to: surfkings@hotmail.com Remember to include you t-shirt size in the message.

We will be ordering HUG T-shirts soon!  The cost is $20 per shirt (cash only).  Bring your money and size to May’s HUG get together.

So far the best Christmas Songbook I have found is one produced a few years ago by the Seattle Ukulele Players Association (SUPA). As far as a single packaged Christmas collection goes, it has a good number of familiar tunes. Here is the link:

By the way, be sure to look at many of the Christmas songs. Even the common Christmas standards feature a host of unfamiliar chords, insanely quick chord changes or a minimum of 6-12 chords per song. Bring on the eggnog.
