Ok fellow uksters what ukulele or musical stuff did the Jolly Big Fellow leave under your tree.

Jim Hanks is gonna love mine........iRig acoustic mic. It was because of his thread I become aware of it. Long and McQuad had one, I bought it gave it to my son and said "here, this is what you are giving me for Christmas". Don't ya just love being an adult.

So. ...whad ja git, whad ja git :D

Merry Christmas to all, enjoy your time with friends and family. That is the real gift.

The usual - stocking full of switches and coal. And it's 79 degrees in NC so I can't even use the coal. :D

I can't wait to hear what you guys think of the iRig acoustic.

We did our family Christmas last night, with the in-laws and the kids. I didn't get anything ukulele related though. I got a few gift cards and a little cash. I might eventually put the cash toward a Vox Mini5 amp. Otherwise, it is pretty quiet this morning. My son flew in from NYC yesterday. He is still sleeping and I don't think he is getting up soon, so I'm just enjoying a cup of coffee and the quiet. Merry Christmas to everyone here on UU. :)

My excellent wife bought me a nice flanger pedal to use with my guitar. Just what I need for my new pedal board in progress. :)

My new Pono and I played at a church program last night with a few other people, we played Feliz Navidad and Mele Kalikimaka. I guess it went ok, we were invited back next year!

Mele Kalikimaka!!! :shaka:

Tammy got a bug for Christmas so we didn't get to go play for the Dances of Universal Peace.
But she gave me a real nice hot air popper and some popcorn, gonna watch a movie tonight!
My Cocobolo Ukulele will be here in a couple of weeks maybe, that will be enough Santa for me for a while!

[charlie brown voice] I got a rock. [/charlie brown voice]

Wrong holiday, I know. Didn't get or need anything uke.
I played some tunes to the wife and dog. Neither left the room so consider it a success

I got a great present this year, an email from the leader of our ukulele group classes, thanking me for my participation, taking up the bass uke, and for recording our rehearsals and uploading them to my web site so everyone can practice anytime at home. It made me feel great.

(Edit: I'm referring to The CC Strummers out of the Culver City Senior Center.)

Laryngitis? Too much performing lately? :)

My brother in law gave me a uke book - one that I already have. It's the thought that counts.

Thanks! It's been fun so far. I did the same thing as DownUpDave (sort of), although in the opposite direction, generation-wise: I ordered and paid for it, had it sent to my mother in Chicago, and then told her what she owed me. :D

Oops, ya got the wrong guy Dan, I was referring to The CC Strummers classes and the audio tracks I put online. I dropped out of the Westside Ukulele Ensemble about a year ago, bit off more than I could chew.

Ah hahaha - I laughed at this way too much!


No. Kids and their germs.

which book?

20 Progressive Fingerstyles by Rob MacKillop. The ironic thing is, it didn't do much for me the first time I bought it. It's a good book and no slight against Rob who is one of my favorite musicians. It's just that I'd already worked through Ukulele Aerobics a lot and had progressed. Friendly imho in case anyone is thinking of buying both.

Anyway I might get to exchange it for the John King uke history book I've been wanting.
