Dang

Dang you, Fox hunt, dang you. I'm a bloomin' impulse buyer and now - - - just because of you I've bought an ukulele.

Actually this thread reminded me of the group I worked with 50 or so years ago. We were close knit and got together with spouses and children about once a month. Before long we all had guitars, together we learned a few chords and had a great time “jammin'” together. Of course as with many good things it came to an end with company transfers, etc. but, obviously, the memory still lingers.

Hello to all,
Wow just came in to download some pics of our new 5.0 TA and saw this cool thread regarding Ukuleles. We are leaving for my Sept - Oct Tour on Friday and will be picking up our 5.0 TA Sept 10. Can't wait. In the meantime I'll be performing and teaching Ukulele at various cities. My website has all the dates so please checkout markbakermusicaz.com
It also looks like I'll be performing as well as teaching Ukulele Workshops at Quartzite in Feb. 2016..This is all I know so stay tuned. It's going to be fun meeting all of you so hope to see you in Feb. if not sooner. You can also follow our travels on Face Book. Just search Mark Baker Sun City. Until then.

I'm excited that you'll be teaching a workshop at Quartzite. I blew the dust off my uke and have joined a local song circle. Can only play chords so far, but am working on strumming. Looking forward to Quartzite.

I'm a total beginner but I love learning new things and the ukulele seems like a fun instrument to play.

Hi Ginger, glad to hear you'll be bringing your Ukulele down in Feb. I'll put a post in later but wanted to tell you, Ohana Ukuleles is now my Sponsor. They build a beautiful and sweet sounding Ukulele. Check out their website and I might be able to help you with a substantial discount.
Uke on
Mark

I bet he'd really encourage your learning! Me too.
Hi Donna, well I was just talking to Greg ( our new host at Quartzite) and I looks like I'll be performing at Quartzite as well as a couple of Ukulele Workshop. Also FYI we will be in Portland for about a week staying with our Daughter and Son in Law. Maybe we can meet for coffee? We will have our new 5.0 TA. The dates are Sept. 18 - 23. If your thinking about buying an Ukulele check out Ohana.. The are my sponsor and built a sweet sounding Ukulele. Maybe we could get a quick lesson in with coffee?

Just noticed this interesting thread. Fox hunt kicked it off with a reference to the uke's portability for his 17. I sometimes take along both my 5-string banjo and guitar, always at least one; enroute under the rear table, then either in the car or my hands in camp. But then we also bring along two BIG dogs, so we're accustomed to optimizing small spaces. For campsite peace and quiet, and (as they say) a good marriage, a banjo mute is a must. Fun stuff…Glenn.

This is old, but I have always loved it. Check out some of his other stuff, and while you are at it, find even more great ukulele music on YouTube.

Nice - prompting a bit of trivia recently forwarded by a uke playing, Hawaiian native, college classmate: Eric Clapton played lead guitar on the Beatles' recording of this. Apparently in part because George Harrison thought Eric,his friend, played it better than him.
