ukulele

I bought a ukulele! Seems like it will be fun to learn how to play and a portable instrument for my escape!

I'm sure the camp site will be thrilled to hear you practice.

You can play pretty softly they are pretty quite not as loud as most conversations. Not nearly as loud as the neighbors rap music or the playing children. I will be a very bad player for a while so i don't really want to subject anyone to it.

Better a Uke, then someone playing scales on a violin.

I take my guitar and find it attracts other musicians- in July, at a small camp ground, we had every camper hanging around our site- some dancing!

We played swing, country, old R&R- great fun.

UkuleleMark is a member here on the EscapeForum and has a 5.0TA in the pipeline. Wowser can he play! Great all around entertainer. He entertained us at the Oregon Gathering several years back.

I bet he'd really encourage your learning! Me too.

My classical fits in one of the dinette overheads with plenty of room to spare. I like taking on fishing trips when I'm in the trailer by myself. Practicing gets to my wife after a bit. Fun fast learning instrument.

Here's one I've been working on lately. https://ukutabs.com/i/israel-kamakaw...nderful-world/

And this is the target.

Was never particularly fond of the ukulele, & it always made me think of Don Ho, but then a few years ago heard a fellow, don't remember a name, playing blues ukulele at the Comox Valley music festival. I went to the stage expecting a joke, but he was amazing! Changed my whole outlook (outhear?)
