    Aloha Everyone,

    I’m not sure how I landed here, but I’ve enjoyed the journey so far. I’m new to the uke and this site. I started playing a few months ago and fell in love. After purchasing several books I don’t understand and YouTube videos that give me conflicting info, I decided it was time to try something new.

    Hi, I am new to the uke and this site also. Just joined in the last week and got my uke last month.

    Hi Lisa!

    How are you liking it so far? I’m really looking forward to getting started. (as soon as I get off the clock…hehe) I love the idea of the live lessons and having so many resources in one spot. We are in the middle of our cold season here. I hibernate in the winter, so I should have plenty of time for learning. ?

    Oh to have winter again….tired of the heat.
    I am loving the uke, and playing about 3-6 hours a day, so getting through lots of lessons and practice.
    I have played guitar for over 40 years, so some things come easier to me.
    I haven’t done any live lessons yet, but working through the lists in their order.
    I also have to co-ordinate the time difference as we are 20 hours ahead. So 2pm Friday is 10am Saturday for me and I just have
    to get my schedules in place and learn not to make plans in those live lesson times. (and teach my mother who I am a carer for to not make her doctors appointments in those times also.)

    That time difference would really throw me off. Takes me a minute to wrap my brain around 5 hours.

    I’m trying to get an hour in every evening. I work during the day and then try to get some “me” time after my kiddo goes to bed. It’s an interesting juggle. Uke has given me a little peace of mind since starting. Ha!

    I have zero background in music, but learning an instrument has always been high on my bucket list. I’m loving it as well.

    Hello fellow Michigander. I am down at the bottom of the state near South Bend Indiana. Small town of Buchanan. I have been here on UU for about a month and have found this is the place to be. This place has helped my playing grow by leaps and bounds. Hope the same for you.

    Hi Curt,

    I am very familiar with the Southwest corner. I’m actually from Saint Joseph. Such a small world! I have zero background with the uke or music in general, but have been loving getting to know the instrument. I just returned from Kaua’i and am looking forward to jumping back into UU. I’ve really enjoyed it thus far.

    Mark from Temperance here. My uke was a gift from a friend in Hilo. I’ve had my uke for a month. I need to get working on this thing. My friend is coming in June and I want to be able to play something…besides air uke

    Hi Mark,

    Me tooooo! My sister is learning as well. I’m really looking forward to feeling more comfortable playing along with her. Have you done the live lessons yet? I haven’t been able to. Wah wah. Hoping to plug in Thursday.
