I love my uke.

My wife gave it to me in Hawaii when we were first dating, back in 1997.
I play it a few times a week, and rock it at the old folks home whenever we go out there to entertain.

I ordered an electric solid-body uke last week, but since it won't be delivered until February, I believe that I will leave it in the original packaging, and give it to my brother for his Birthday on 25 Feb.

Paying it forward!!

Very nice playing and singing, by the way.

You have great uke skills, flatboroque!

Thanks Sparqs!
Yea the ukes are a great antidote to guitar lethargy / boredom / frustration. I've been learning a lot of jazz standards..American Songbook stuff..great fun.And my music theory knowledge has benefited too.
I didn't have any great interest in them till forum member Buc started posting songs during a uke period he had.Then I realised it was a real instrument.
