A tad better week by week! Exciting being able to play chords that once seemed impossible :-) Love the ukulele sound.
Intermediate Beginner. Always learning from the wonderful Mainline Uke folks.
In another lifetime far far away, played a bit of piano; would pick up recorder & Irish whistle now and then.
Having so much fun making music with my daughter (& fellow ukers & ukistas!)
The group as a whole is growing and adding new, regular venues. Wonderful to see a ukulele community jelling. I primarily go to the Thursday evenings at (Jake's) Troubadour Music Shop in Wayne. Have met wonderful people there. I started coming as a complete and utter newbie (playing and singing)(didn't have my own uke yet -- Jake is happy to let you use one of their ukes to play your first few times) and everyone was welcoming and encouraging. A very relaxed group. They play the entire range of musical genres and time periods. It's a joy discovering new songs, re-discovering ones I didn't recognize by title, as well as playing the much-loved hits. (Everyone is welcome to bring copies of whatever song(s) they would like the group to play, as well.) They've shown me many a good playing tip. Great fun. Making music together is the best!
