    I kinda like that you (I mean folks in general) don't feel as pressured to play a ukulele to the level you might feel as required to pursue with electric guitar or piano, for example.



    I got a little entry level Kohala Soprano Uke for a Christmas present a year or two ago, and it is fun. It only takes a few minutes to learn a few uke chords, and then you're off and strumming and it sounds good enough, i.e. like a ukulele should sound per what's in your head.



    I eventually would like to get a couple more from the larger sizes. So I'm pausing and scratching when they occasionally show up on Stupid Deal Day offers.

    Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
    I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

            Well, I just hope you're not this guy. This is a guy who would make the rest of us put it down.

              So a guy walks into a ukulele store to purchase a ukulele and sees an accountant and a rabbi and a farmer standing side by side.



              First turning to the accountant, the guy says "I have come here to buy a ukulele. Does this place have any ukuleles?"



              The accountant says...

                Jake is absolutely amazing, good thing nobody ever told him that it wasn't a real instrument.

                  I went into my local Botique music store last week.

                  Walking through the acoustic section, they has quite a few Uke's priced at $500 and above.

                  One was $950!

                      Darn. I thought this was going to say "so a guy walks into a ukulele store, walks out with a guitar. NGD!"

                      Why or how there's a guitar in a ukulele store are things I choose not to wonder about.

                        Timely topic. I can't get my son to play guitar, even though he is musically talented and would pick it up quickly, but he just ordered himself a ukulele. Go figure.

                              I played a lot of ukelele while I was living in Hawaii and I'd like to get back to it. I've had my eye on a Kamaka Concert for a while but I've always ended up purchasing some piece of guitar equipment instead.
