Musical Instrument AKA The Rolling Bones

Our next session Thursday 16th May

Thanks to all who attended our 2nd May session and a special thanks to Eddie, Marie and Jenny for their help and guidance.

We started the session off with a short discussion as to how we move forward with the structure of the group. It was decided by the group that we should begin to look at the timing of the pieces we are developing and to have a nominated person to take the lead. Also the aim is for all the group members to have access to a copy of the music and the chords in the right key ready for the next session. The U3A secretary to be contacted regarding photocopying access.

It was decided that we could have a programme of about 12 pieces that we could develop. Each session we could practice about three pieces until we are satisfied that they could be performance ready. Other tunes could be added at a later date.

The first to be selected were:
Da Doo Ron Ron. (D)
All of Me (C)
California Blue (D)

Other suggestions were:
Tequila Sunrise (G)
Twist and Shout (C). As a party piece
Blackberry Way ( C)

At our newly formed session everyone seemed keen to sing, if not on their own, then harmonising with the other singers. We have some really good vocalists who are excellent at doing solo spots.
It was also agreed that we would continue with our guitar chord tuition from Marian.
Another suggestion was to approach the U3A committee about purchasing a microphone amplifier.

Thanks for all your enthusiasm and looking forward to seeing you all soon -- “ the coolest group in U3A “

Best Regards

Candice
