Do you play ukulele, guitar, or any other musical Instrument now?

After a year, I can say that I play a little.

Share with us the reasons for your interest...

I build Diddley Bows with one G string for kids to play for youth groups and I also help them learn to play 'by the numbers'. It take about 40 hours to build a nice uke from a cigar box and cut the neck from a 1 X 2 piece of poplar. I sometimes help other who are getting started building their own homemade ukes and give classes on how to build them.

How many ukulele's or musical instruments do you have?

I have one store bought uke and about 6 cigar box ukes and a bango uke that I made out of a tambourine.

Do you have an occasional Friday night or Sat. morning available to come out and meet with us? We also have different music clubs meeting during the week, as well as music classes on week nights (check out the calendar, we are a busy meetup site!)
