CANCELLED! 26 May Thursday Session at The Cumberland Arms – but there is some consolation! | @thecumby

Dot has had so many apologies for Thursday from people on holiday or attending other events that we have decided to cancel the session this week.

If you are missing your regular uke-fix, don’t forget that on Wednesday 25th we have a wonderful workshop and concert at The Cumberland Arms!

There are still a few tickets left for the Clawhammer Ukulele Workshop by Aaron Keim. These £20 “full tickets” include free entry to the Concert by “The Quiet American” (Aaron and Nicole Keim) with a special guest appearance by “Danielle Ate The Sandwich”. “Concert only” tickets are only £5!

The Quiet American” and “Danielle Ate The Sandwich” are headlining the Grand Northern Ukulele Festival (GNUF) at Huddersfield this weekend. Many thanks to GNUF for giving us a chance to see them in Newcastle!

ps. Many thanks also to GNUF for accepting my application to play at the Vinyl Tap Open Mic on Saturday 28th May! I am rather awestruck at being featured as a “Performer” alongside these amazing people!

A few days after my last blog post (Some Songbook and Chordpro Tips) I answered a question on the Chordie Forum that covered similar ground plus the confusion that arises when someone asks in the Chordie Forum about features of “Songbook” or “My Songbook”:

Linkesoft songbook WindowsIn case it helps anyone else, some extracts from recent email correspondence about Songbook from Linkesoft and Chordpro aka Chordii formatting.

Where there are references to a “PC” this applies equally to a Mac or any other operating system. Similarly, “iPad” is interchangeable with “iPhone”. I have no experience of the Android version but I assume that things will be much the same.

If anyone spots any errors in what I have posted here, please do leave a comment with the correct information!

I have put songbook app on my tablet and got the usual ‘Greensleeves’ demo. I was wondering:

1. How you get all the songs in word documents on my PC converted to Chordpro (do you have to download songbook for windows and work on your PC and move the songs across to the tablet?)

2. Have you got to use Dropbox or can you just move songs…
