Hosted by BURP (Berkhamsted Ukulele Random Players)




I’ve included a starter songbook under “What’s Next” to give us something to play.

For those starting out I’ll add another songbook soon, if you don’t have an ukulele or cant beg, steal or borrow one, don’t dash out and buy one, I would prefer you come to the session so you can try out the different types and sizes of ukulele, then buy.

By all means take a look at what is available, there are a couple of shops mentioned in the “Resources/links” most folks start with a soprano or a concert size, but tenor is an option. Sorry don’t really know anything about the Baritone.  No need to have a solid wood one, although they are great to play and look at, laminate ones are perfectly ok, plastic ones as cheap, typically found in schools these days (what no recorder? I hear you say)  –  as with most things, you get what you pay for!

Welcome to the “No Strings Attached” sessions site.  It is a start up group, local to Woodley, Winnersh and Wokingham Berkshire.  We play ukuleles and the like, sing and have a laugh in a relaxed environment.  Everyone is welcome, from those starting out to seasoned players. As long as its enjoyable we’ll  keep it going! I’ll kick off the music for the early sessions but we all have our favorite songs so I’m expecting some suggestions. The frequency can be monthly/twice a month, we can decide first session.

We also welcome player of other instruments just let me know before you turn up.
