When did you first become interested in the ukulele?

A couple of years ago. I've never played an instrument before but I figured the uke would be a good place to start. Plus it has fewer strings than a guitar, so it should be simpler...riiiiight?

Who is your favorite ukulele artist/group?

Too many to name but Jake Shimabukuro and Willie K and Daniel Ho come to mind. Plus the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain does some fun stuff, as does a group called Yoyoyo Acapulco.

Are you a beginner or more advanced player?

I thought I had moved on to "intermediate" status but because I am not good about practicing, I think I've reverted to sort of a semi-advanced beginner. I'd like to learn better picking techniques but my fingers always get in the way.

How many ukuleles do you own? :O

Just one, well one real one -- a Kala -- and two toy ones friends have given me.

What is your favorite type of music?

Almost anything with some exceptions, but let's not dwell on the negative.
