I got my new ukulele yesterday! Beautiful!
« on: April 11, 2019, 06:18:23 pm »
What a joy to play! It sounds beautiful and looks just as good! Any other ukulele players out there? I am looking for good sites to get free sheet music! Let me know what you play and how you get your music. I have a tenor ukulele, well two of them now. I really like the depth of sound. I joined a lesbian ukulele band and will be practicing over the next two months and then play in our Pride Parade!

Happy playing! Hugs!

Hi Kelly, I have a nice sounding soprano but I’ve been in the market for either a concert or a tenor.  Any suggestions?  I’ve played guitar since my teens and only picked up the uke a few years back.  I get my music through a google search.  Add uke and sheet music to anything you like.  Chances are there’s something out there.

The thing about ukuleles is that you can get a decent ukulele for under $200.. I have a thing for solid wood instruments so when I wanted to upgrade my ukulele, I looked at the brands that fit the bill. I looked at Kala and Pono. I fell in love with the Pono.. There are a variety of woods that Ukuleles are made and I researched what at the major makes use.. I decided on mango. Very bright sound.  Really worth the money! You should check out the ukulelesite.com.

Yes! I am hoping that besides getting me more into playing, it does give me opportunities to meet new people as I have moved to a new city just over a month ago! Music has always been something that settles me and playing has not always been easy. I just love the process of learning and hearing the results of my labour! I can get lost for hours!

I forget how to input pictures into the threads!

Help needed! With Danielle out of the loop for a while, maybe someone else can help me!

Thanks! She does sound sweet and her set up is wonderful! My hope is that I can learn to play her as well as she deserves to be played! The leader of our ukulele band is coming back this week and she is going to meet with me to check out my ukulele and to start me off with the music she has selected for our group. So excited! I have been trying to pull stuff from the internet but I have not been that happy with what I can get for free. Sure is different than getting mandolin music! That is available in abundance !
