How long have you been playing ukulele?

I have been playing since mid November 2011! Never played any string instrument before and don't really read music, but I have made nice progress (for a 3-week-old player!)

Do you have any particular songs or styles of music you like to play?

Not really. At this time, anything I like to listen to that has easy chords! I'd like to learn some Hawaiian tunes and be able to strum in a nice way (and be able to sing while I strum!)

Do you play other musical instruments? If so, which ones?

I don't play anything else. I have "played around" with an Irish accordion (I can play an awesome number of 3 tunes!) and I used to play clarinet in middle school (last century)

Would you like to sing a few songs of your choosing in an informal group setting?

Not really! At this point, I can't do two things at once! It's strumming or singing! I don't mind singing along though!

Are you interested in group lessons? If so, what do you want to learn about?

I'd love that. I'm in need of strumming help!

Introduction

I live in Bradenton and am a Jake fan! Got a ukulele in mid Nov. - a spur of the moment purchase. I had tried the guitar but was getting really frustrated with the shape of my fingertips after 10 min. I can't put the uke down! I'm teaching myself.
