How long have you played ukulele?

For several months but alone. I listen to you tube and have a lot of sheet music.

What level of player do you consider yourself?

Hard to say. I understand the structure of songs and read music and tablature. I know guitar cords and can find different scales. For some unknown reason I get confused and quite anxious about strumming. I need regular practice; my fingers are out of shape. I guess I can best be described as a quasi-beginner who can come on pretty quickly.

What type pf uke activities are you interested in? (lessons, playing, open mic, social, etc.)

I'm interested in lessons and playing,social and open mic lastly. At my age I seek the mental and whole body exercise unique to music. I would love to be able to perform in front of people without getting shaky and tongue-tided.

How may and what kind of ukes do you own?

I have a Hilo acoustic baritone uke that I play. I also have a small homemade appearing uke with nylon strings. I took it to a music store, and neither I nor they could figure out how to string it.
