- Each week, a different member of the 'Uke-aholics' chooses 6 - 8 songs to start our Wheatsheaf sessions.
- These may be songs that we would like to reintroduce into our setlist that perhaps we haven't sung for a while, new songs that we think would be good to try, or simply songs that we enjoy playing.
- After the 6 -8 songs, we can then revert to the usual 'round the room' choice.
- Hopefully, this trial will ensure that we keep moving forward as a group, learning new songs, enjoying our music and having fun! It seems to be working so far!
August 17th Shirley will compile a list of songs that went down well over the last 9 weeks, chosen from our 'Song Choices'.
