Been Busy

It seems that I have not posted anything here for a while. I've been really busy with life and it'll probably be that way for quite some time. I still love the 'ukulele and will keep this site going. Maybe posts will be fewer and further between, but it's not a sign of dwindling interest. Quite the opposite. But I think I will try to concentrate for myself on the music made with the instruments instead of acquiring instruments themselves. It's hard to believe, but I think I'm done with UAS. Maybe not forever, but in the foreseeable future.

I still want to share my thoughts on the custom King tenor and a few other ukes I've acquired since the last lineup update. In that update, I wrote that there are three ukes I still was very interested in checking out, and I ended up getting all three! So there are still quite a few things I could post in the near future, and I will try to share those sometime.

For those who check out this little site, I'm sincerely humbled and glad that you might find the things here entertaining to read. I hope that even though I may be decreasing my involvement in the 'ukulele community, we all continue to spread the wonderfun little instrument that is the 'ukulele.

Thanks!

Hey GX,

I've been following your blog for sometime now but I haven't gotten around to making a blogspot account yet to comment on your entries. It's be great that you've been documenting all of your findings and I hope you'll still continue to keep an update.

I just inherited a uke and I'm trying to find a place that offers lessons on how to play, here in the Twin Cities. What would you recommend? Great site btw... C. Castelline MPLS
