    I was worried that might have been the explanation.

    Sorry to hear mate, hopefully they've caught it early enough that it doesn't turn into a serious problem.

    jackluis - i think very young kids like your granddaughter and newphews tend to be thrilled to get ANY song going on a uke! super simple 2 chord songs are a great idea, traditional songs or any style of popular music work - i think it's a bit older kids, teens and maybe nearly teens, who might be more concerned about doing chart songs they know

    googling 2, 3 and even 1 chord songs would be a great start

    Ouch. Hope everything that needs finding has been found, and that the healing goes to plan.

    Sorry to hear that Pa. I hope it's been found in time and you don't have to go through Chemo. I've just seen my daughter go through chemo and it was a pretty rough time for her, though she kept positive and kept on with her nursing course. I was lucky with mine (bowel cancer) it hadn't gone too far and was dealt with by surgery.

    Well wishes from me too pabrizzer. you haven't said what kind of skin cancer so Im hoping you've caught it in time. Glad you listening to the Dr. Better safe then sorry! And, speedy recovery!

    I've had some Actinic Keratosis pre-cancers electively removed until I read they can be removed with ACV with mother. I just removed another that I noticed last week. I soaked a small ball of cotton and slept with it under a bandage last Thursday. One night and gone! Took 4 days to get rid of it.

    You can't be too careful with these things.

    Ha Ha Ha, I did what you suggested and got a bazillion ref's!

    Thanks for the "HINT".

    I'm such a newbie when it comes to music and have a poor memory of my childhood songs, that I need some reminders now and again ( or as my wife says Again and Again!)

    One of the first One Chord songs suggested was "Put the Lime In the Coconut" in C7. it was suggested to use three inversions of the chord and that would be real good to have the older kids play one and the younger kids play 0001 and still they could all participate in the singing. I'm going to put that in the first lesson to get people singing and DDuD strumming.

    Here's a quick share: Sunday night my uke band was playing a local tavern. Great crowd, Packers just won so everyone's happy. Two of our seven members can't make it, our harmonica player and our bass player. We got a sub bassist, she was terrific but she didn't really know any of our songs. Our bandleader forgets his trumpet, which he plays on a few numbers. Our leader also added a couple of songs which we hadn't rehearsed. Very unusual for us.

    So, myself, and our percussionist take our our kazoos, and our lead uke grabs a slide whistle. We started cracking wise, blaring kazoos at inappropriate times, telling jokes, and in general we were totally nuts.It was a weird, wild, out-of-control show. And the crowd loved it. I was having so much fun my face actually started hurting from smiling.

    Goes to show ya, sometimes when things go wrong, they go right!

    Sounds like a great gig Randy. You know you're having fun when you get grinning pains...
