    Default New to this forum—not to the instrument

    Hi all,

    Matt here. I play the uke and guitar. I play the guitar for church stuff—I even use a couple of Ken Middleton “bluegrass” arrangements that I ripped from YouTube...I also play classic rock and swing in groups in the area.

    Uke is my favorite. I play for my younger kids everyday at bedtime. I also teach Uke classes at the local college (I have a music degree) and play tenor Uke in a jazz trio. I also do a ukulele singalong at local retirement homes using my Kiwaya KS-4. I also play for the local farmers market.

    I am looking forward to connecting with other people who have the ukulele affliction—it can be lonely at times.

    Welcome to UU, and thanks for playing for folks in nursing homes. Ukulele often becomes people's fave. I know it's mine!

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

    Matt,

    Welcome. Where (roughly) are you from? This is always something good to know as ukulele is such a social instrument.

    Playing ukulele since January 2016.

    Have you participated in the thread, "How the Ukulele Found You?" If not, please consider adding your story--they are just fun to read.
