Hi DUGs,
Scottish Ukulele Mini-fest
I have only heard back from two or three members about attendance for this event.
I need to register our group as soon as possible.
Please let me know if you can make it.
Isobel Cunningham's Funeral
Jackie, myself, and Ken Russell attended the funeral on Thursday.
We made a donation on the Group's behalf.
Money raised will be split between Strathcarron Hospice, MacMillan Cancer Support, and Cats Protection. 
This week's playlist has been selected by Adam.
Dance the night away
Dirty old town
Stand by me
Bad moon rising
Brown eyed girl
Crocodile rock
Octopus's garden
Sweet caroline
Western Isles
Mamma Mia
We will also have another go at some of our most recent new songs:
Texas Hold Em
What Was I Made For?
Make Me Smile
Bring Me Sunshine
Man on the Moon
Adam has suggested a great new song for us. A 90s classic... Prepare to be Rickrolled! 
The Stock Aitken Waterman earworm - Never Gonna Give You Up, by Rick Astley.
Not a difficult song to play, or sing.
But, like many simple songs, it can be greatly enhanced with a nice strumming pattern.
There is a good little YouTube tutorial by John "The Ukulele Teacher" Atkins:
With a bit of practice, I bet we can sing this song nearly as good as John 😉
The Song Sheet is in the Dropbox folder, if you'd like to have a practice before Wednesday:
