We are moving to Guadalajara in July. I have been playing Tenor Ukulele for a year now and belong to two groups where I currently live. One is all ukulele and meets once a month, the other is old farts folk musicians that also meets once a month.. I NEED TO FIND SOMETHING LIKE THIS IN GUADALAJARA. My musical interests range from 30's-40's Jazz song book to folk and what ever.... calling all musicians!!!!!

I've some great uke books and some video programs that teach uke basics, get a uke, we can learn together. There really his no more happy an instrument than ukulele AND it isn't all about Hawaiian music... there was a ukulele craze in the 30's and many sophisticated chords that are damn hard to play on a guitar are actually not that hard on a traditionally tuned four string uke.

Any group I would be involved in would have to be evenings or weekends because I will be teaching History at the American School Foundation Guadalajara.

Stan, your best bet on this is probably going to be putting up notices where you are teaching in GDL after you get there. Not a lot of GDL people on this board.

Good luck and good picking!

Stan, There is a small group of ukulele interest in Ajijic, at Lake Chapala. We play (practice) weekly and we've been playing and learning together since January. I play a tenor and Sheila plays a concert. We have another friend, Lee, who's been playing longer, but is only a snowbird. There is also a Hawaiian living lakeside, Hal, who was instrumental in getting us started playing the ukulele. He plays locally at restaurants and other venues periodically. We'd love to meet you. Would like to get your email so we can get in touch.

Hi! Is your ukulele group still meeting? Is it open to new members? 2 beginners and one seasoned player interested! We are snowbirds.

I don't lead the group, but we just added another newbie. I'm sure we'd love to have you join us at times. We meet Monday afternoons at 2-4. I'll send you a PM with contact information.

Any of you who would like to do some Bluegrass music, please PM me. After a trip north and being sick for a few weeks, I'm going to try and get things going again.

I'm so sorry for being away. Club Ukulele del Laguna meets on Monday afternoons from 2-4 at Maria Isabel (Old Posada) at the end of Colon at the malecon in Ajijic. We have beginner workshops the 2nd - 4th Mondays from 1-1:45. On the 1st Monday of each month is Jam Day, where we all bring our entire Song Book and just play and a good time for newcomers to get acquainted.

Our FB page is https://www.facebook.com/groups/ClubUkuleleLaguna/

and our WEB page is http://lakesideukulele2014.wix.com/clubukuleledelaguna

We're the CUL Kids! (CUL pronounced "cool") We even have our own "anthem"

We have grown from 5 members to 20 since May. We'd be happy for you to join us.
