I’ve been spending more time with the little instrument. Enjoy.

Lately things have been crazy, as most of you know. Living the corporate life, days are between twelve to fourteen hours, though the work is very interesting.
Hey hey. Just a random post to confirm that I am still indeed alive.
I just got back from picking up the ukulele from the luthier. On the way home I stopped in a park, played a little, took the pics below, then went for lunch. After this update I’ll be playing for quite some time… this instrument is incredible. The tone, the feel, the action, the… everything. I am impressed. Very impressed.
Long week. Lots of fires to put out this week at work. But it’s over and am enjoying a lazy Saturday morning.
So I’ve been saving up for a tenor ukulele (the generally accepted types are soprano (what I have now), concert (slightly larger/louder than the soprano), tenor (more volume and bass but, more importantly, longer fretboard, the whole instrument is about 4″ longer than a soprano) and baritone (a mini guitar, 50% loner than a soprano and often with different tuning).
A little more uke fun.
Well, I finally bit the bullet and recorded myself playing a song on the ukulele.
As a backgrounder, I’ve been playing for about 6 months. he only instrument I’ve played before were the drums when I was a teenager so this is the first instrument I’m learning that involves notes. Or strings. I’ve been struggling learning a few songs, but yesterday I came across a tab for Sam Hall. Playing this song came a lot more naturally to me than the others. So 24 hours later, I recorded it.
