Sunday Stringathon and mini-jam!!! \m/

Ok, so I've recently become fascinated with different ukulele strings and the effect that they have on tone and playability on our adorable little instruments lol...so I recently ordered a smorgasbord of strings (Worth, Fremont, Martin, Ko'olau, etc)

Anyways, me and a few uke buddies are getting together at my shop this Sunday night to do some re-stringing, and I figured, what the heck...let's turn this into a Meetup! =D So come on out if you're interested in learning how to restring your uke(s) and hearing the difference new strings can make! Then we can have a mini-jam with our newly strung ukes to tide us over until Kelly's next big Meetup =D

(P.S. Keeping with the spirit of Kelly's Meetups, alcohol is both welcome and encouraged =)

      Hey, Sylvia! Sorry to hear about your hand--that sucks =/ Luckily, I think you'll still be able to change out strings =) Hope to see you tonight!

    I guess I'll have to wait until next jam.

    Hey Ed, this isn't Kelly's usual Los Feliz Meetup...I just figured I'd hold this Meetup at my place in Pasadena to tide us over until the real thing =)

      Hey George, yeah, I know! Actually would love to make it, haven't a clue as to how to re-string a Uke. You guys should head to the Slack Key Fest, starts a 2pm.

    Kelly, kind of short notice, huh? Unfortunately can't make it, going to the Slack Key Festival down in Redondo tomorrow. My friend Ken Emerson is performing with a host of other Slack Key Legends. Ken is actually one himself, I guess, won a grammy a few years ago.

    Have fun!! See ya next time.

    Aloha
