    Never. Owned 2, could never play them.

    Music washes from the soul, the dust of everyday living.

    I tried playing one back in the 70's, so I'd have been in my mid 20's, never succeeded, too many strings for me.

    Not yet - but many people seem to go through a guitar stage, before they move up to the ukulele.

    Started on my father's old Harmony acoustic when I was 9, then got my own electric when I was 10 (which I still have) and have played/owned MANY different flavors of the guitar over the years and many lessons as well as college study of classical guitar.

    Started with ukulele about 38 yrs later, and added it as another instrument by doing so, which has become my main instrument now for about 3.5 yrs.
