Spa Strummers name and identity. 
Be aware that there is only one SPA STRUMMERS ukulele group. Another group has used a very similar a name in an attempt to mislead the public, with an obvious attempt to plaguerise our name and thereby gain credibility on the back of all our hard work and reputation we have built up over 7 years.  Be aware the the upcoming Whitnash Fun Day programme has misleadingly used 2 of our pictures on the front of their programme.

Play me that Honky Tonk Music - Keith
Back On the Chain Gang - Laura (Pretenders)
Carey - Laura (Joni Mitchell)
Laura sent notes on Carey:  I've added chords to the words sheet I use.  I've used a number code because there can be 2 ways of playing this:  bog standard C, G7, F or you can 'boldly go' into a different tuning that opens up all kinds of possibilities for noodling around by simply sliding up and down strings 2 and 3.
Called Slack Key or Drop G tuning, all you have to do is get string 1 (nearest the floor) tuned down to be the same as string 4 (nearest the nose).
As here for low G:

Spookelele Halloween Zoom this week -
many witches and a load of warlocks.

Trick or treat:-   Why not try a suitable / spooky / funny Halloween song -  dress up, have fun !!

To help your search - here is a Halloween songbook  (with a nod to Mosesele.co.uk)

And now we have a much better updated version Halloween Songbook (with a nod to NUGS)
Some of the songs we already have in our repertoire, probably in different keys.
This is to give you some ideas on possible songs. Take a song straight out ohe book, perhaps change key or whatever.
If you can't find a suitable song, then any of your choice.
Zoom starts at 8pm (doors open 7.45). The ID and password will be sent out by email.

Send in your requests to Dave if possible so we don't have duplication of songs

Songs and players so far
Dave & Pam
Ghost Riders in the Sky (Am)
Bad Moon Rising
(The Monster Mash (G) )

12/11/20 Zoom session Last updated 08/11/20 15.30

Zoom starts at 8pm (doors open 7.45). The ID and password has been sent out by email.

For various reasons I have only been receiving a very few names and songs to list, although we are having a good number of people joining the Zoom. So please this week please send in your name and requests to Dave in plenty of time and the song arrangements will be posted on the website for all to join in and it will be easier for me to organise the format.

Each week there will be a song for different people to do a part each, and this has been fun before.
I will pick an order for individuals to play the song, and just before it is your turn then turn your Mute off, but be silent until you start to play.
This weeks song is Combine Harvester by the Wurzels (see if you can do the Zumerzet accent)

Another we could do is very topical. A song for Donald Trump, who has recently lost the most powerful job an the world (and presumably his presidential trousers).
Methinks he "will not go gentle into that good night" and deserves a Strummers send-off - so let's do "Donald Where's Yerr Troosers"
