I lived in Vanuatu for two years in the mid 90's and it's a popular instrument there. That's when I started to play, but only as a secondary instrument to the guitar.
I would like to play better, learn new skills, have fun and meet new people.
About 19 years, but for fun and not very seriously. It has only been in the last two years that I have made the uke my primary instrument and I love it.
I play the guitar at a fairly basic level. I'm out of practice, as the uke has taken centre stage. It helps to buy a good quality one.
Yes, I do and it's so portable.
I have been attending for several years now. I would like to continue to improve my skills, socialise and also have fun. I'm a uke enthusiast.
Denis did a good job leading, given all the difficulties. There were a lot of people there last night. It was very crowded, the room was narrow and there was a wide range of abilities. All this changed the ambience. May I suggest that in future, maybe there could be two separate groups? It doesn't seem feasible to me to have as large group as last night, every time, and keep everyone happy. The second one could perhaps be geared towards beginners and could meet on a different night or during the day. If John and his team are already over-stretched, maybe some advanced, local club members could lead the second group and possibly even be paid. Please could we have a song list (typed or from the book) in advance, so we can practise. Again, this preparation could be delegated to another couple of capable, willing club members. Just my opinion, please don't take offence. I know that a lot of work goes into running the club. Thanks. The view - splendid!
