On tuesday night we went down to help launch Lauren Mason’s new Open Mic night at the Queen Vic pub in Shalford.
It was a well attended evening, with some familiar faces, with mix of superb guitarists. We played acoustically as it’s too much hassle to worry about plugging in and mic’ing six people (Cathy couldn’t be there) – we got a really good response, we opened with our usual starter of ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ and there were lots of mobile phones being whipped out.
The ukulele has quickly got me to a standard where I can play along with a group of people in a pub, something which, when I first picked up a uke, was my goal. Now, my goal is to keep having fun with 'me little ukulele in me hand'.
I have been playing since 2011, and I am a teacher.
