Luis Feu de Mesquita Ukaferri (Updated with Video)


It’s here!

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.

Music: Johnny Cash’s Sam Hall on the Ukulele



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.

So 24 hours later, I recorded it.
