    Default “Ukulele Mike” Lynch Passed Away

    Stunned to hear of Ukulele Mike’s sudden passing today (which was shared by some on Facebook). He made music more accessible to so many. The ukulele community will cherish the legacy of his many tutorials for many years. RIP Ukulele Mike!
    More an appreciator of the ukulele than a true player. My motto is: "Don't matter how good it ring if it ain't got some bling."

    Oh no, that is really sad

    He'll be remembered to me as a kind of Bob Ross type of figure. Always pleasing to watch his videos and seemed like a nice guy

    I just saw the posts on his Facebook page. Like most people, I learned a lot about playing the ukulele by watching Mike's YouTube channels when I was a beginner. Mike was generous, kind, and beloved, and he loved teaching. My deepest condolences to Mike's family and loved ones. Rest in Aloha.

    This really is a shock. He was one of my first and favorite "youtube teachers", I got so much out of his teachings. My condolences go out to his family and friends he will be missed and treasured.
