Hi folks…HUG Songbook Title Graphic

I have just completed another edit of Volume 2 of the HUG Songbook and have added another 30 songs or so. I was able to include many that Gang members had posted in the Facebook file sharing space.

I anticipate having to do at least one more edit after we play-test many of these songs at the February 9 gathering at Celtic Corner. Please download this new book and lets see how many of these new songs we can test out!

Here is the link to the newest draft version:

The Official HUG Songbook – Volume 2 – DRAFT – Feb 5 2015

Please let me know if you spot any major errors or oversights.

Thanks again,

Jonathan

PS… Here is my current Microsoft Word document for those of you who like to play with the formatting yourself (or for other Ukulele Clubs who want to customize it). Please take a look at page 2 of the document, as I included info on how the book was formatted. Here is the MS Word versionThe Official HUG Songbook – Volume 2 – DRAFT

Hi folks…

I have just pulled together another collection of songs drawn from a variety of sources across the internet (and threw it into our basic songbook format)

While there will likely be a few more edits along the way, please take a look at what is there so far. Maybe we can play with this book at the next gathering on Monday, February 2.

See you all on Monday, December 2 at Celtic Corner.

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.
