    Default New from Texas, howdy everyone!

    All my life I have been the odd one in my family with no musical abilities. My husband and son play guitar and bass, son-in-law plays drums and my daughter and daughter-in-law sing like birds. I can't sing (I lip sync'd happy birthday to my kids the minute I realized they knew I couldn't sing, LOL).

    Learning a musical instrument has been on my bucket list so this year I am taking it on with a Ukulele. My uke will be here tomorrow. I'm so excited to get started!

    Welcome aboard.

    I didn't actually play an instrument until I found the uke, it let me learn to play it.

    Welcome! I hope the ukulele clicks as an instrument for you. So many of us here have your musical background and found the ukulele is the instrument they have been looking for.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome! It arrived today and I practiced for just over an hour on C, G and F. My fingers need to grow calluses fast! LOL
