Here are answers to some common questions we receive about PUG.

How do I join Prescott Ukulele Guild?

To join, please come to our monthly meeting which happens via Zoom on the first Thursday of each month. (Check our Events Calendar Page here.)

The first visit to PUG is free, so click here to request to attend a Zoom meeting and decide if you’d like to join. If so, you will be asked to pay the yearly dues, prorated for the balance of the year. We often use The Daily Ukulele, 365 Songs for Better Living (a.k.a. Big Yellow).   We are currently reformatting all our Core Songs into new song sheets that will incorporate lyrics, chords and notes all in one file and which will be downloadable here .

The Daily Ukulele book is available online:

  • The Daily Ukulele, 365 Songs for Better Living (Amazon.com)

What if I don’t know how to play ukulele yet?

From time to time, we have a Newbie/ Beginner’s Group that can help you get started with your playing.  Please see our Events page.  Just by coming to our meetings you’ll pick up some tips and meet helpful people most likely.

There are many online resources, paid and free, for learning ukulele (YouTube is your friend!). Also, group member Steve Edwards teaches ukulele.  Visit the Ukulele Lessons page.

What ukuleles do you recommend?

A better uke does not necessarily make the better uke player.   More money does, however, buy better sound. (And a real cheap uke might hold you back. ) Our members play everything from the soprano ukulele (made famous by Tiny Tim and others) to concerts, tenors, baritones and banjoleles – and even bass ukuleles.  

Here is a basic primer on standard types of ukuleles: https://ukuguides.com/guides/the-ukulele-buying-guide/
