I was reading up about some stuff when I decided to look up John King's Wikipedia for no good reason. I looked in the footnotes and I saw an interesting article King wrote on the ukulele. After reading it, I'm so bummed I was never able to meet the guy. King was so insightful and snarky! Wherever you are in your ukulele journey, take a look at this! You'll appreciate the wisdom he has to share from the archives! :)

Great article! Here's a quote:

"Those stricken with crummy-uke-player syndrome (CUPS—each letter is pronounced) were chronically unaware of their affliction; obliviousness was
symptomatic. And so they played on. And on."

It's like he knew me! :)
