The websites below are very good, check them out.     (Richard G’s Songbook)
oldies  from a-z guitar chords and lyrics

There are lots of others, and don’t forget  ‘you tube’ is a good way of checking out old and new songs.
If you think of a song just type in name and ukulele after it, and if there is a uke version it will find it.
Looking for a uke, try ‘e bay’. Just type in Concert, Soprano or Baritone Ukulele and see what is available, or try Top Gun Music Store also on the web. This shows what you can get in  USA , Hawaii or South East Asia. Also shipping costs. Always good to have a look. You can  check on the net if there is a review on the make and model you are looking at.  You can also get acoustic electric models or just electric as well as amps and pickups if you wish to go down that track. Talk to Des if you are unsure.
Ukes are  available locally at stores like Tweed Heads “Musicland”  and “Ralph White” Palm Beach
A couple of new outlets have just opened   “Three Worlds” 20 James Street Burleigh Heads and 
Gold Coast Ukuleles, Burleigh  Heads  www. Two of our members have recently purchased  ukuleles at these stores and are very happy. Always best if you can try before you buy.
