Man, with all this renewed interest in the ukulele I hope that I never end up in a campsite next to someone practicing "Tiptoe through the tulips"

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.
Dang Fox Hunt, Mark and all who posted, now I want to buy a ukulele too! Dave might too! Didn't realize the depth of that instrument. Always loved IZ though! Mark - We will miss you in PDX in September guess we'll have to come to Quartzite. Congrats on your 5.0.

Happy trails,
Dave & Kathie

Congratulations on your new uke! A couple good items I found helpful is Ukulele Mike online and a book called Let's Kanikapila, Ten Steps to Learning Ukulele (I think that's the title). It's available on Amazon. Kanikapila is a Hawaiian jam session. Ukulele Mike is a teacher in Seattle. His online lessons are clear and easy to follow. Fun stuff.

My musical career ended in grade seven when, though I attended every mandatory choir practice after dinner at the boarding school, it was suggested that I mouth the words.
In grade two music class I was given a can of rocks to shake, and then asked not to shake the can.

There are some classic instruments of elementary school instruction, chosen for some combination of low cost and ease of playing - the ukulele is one, and the recorder is the other one which comes to mind. I think many of us associate these instruments with bad music, which is unfair to the instruments and to more accomplished players of (better made versions of) them. A friend of mine took up recorder in his 20's... but not with the plastic instrument that we played a decade earlier!

Hi there, I hope to see you at Quartzite in February. I'll be teaching a few workshops at all levels plus lots of jamming..
