Well, I somehow managed to crack the tuning peg on my ukulele. Now I can't play it until I get it fixed. How will I survive? I guess that just means I am going to have to try harder to get a Mainland as soon as possible.

Hey Nat,
I just listened to your cover of "i can see clearly now". I think you sang that very well. I do have to agree with you that you need a new uke. As far as cracking your tuner peg.....hmmmm.....you could easily replace that. Don't doubt yourself.....you play uke, you play guitar, and you sing. You can change a tuning peg. The don't cost that much. Go for it! Keep up the singing!

There's bound to be a shop near Detroit Rock City that has uke pegs. Look for one that specializes or features lots of acoustic guitars and folk instruments.

Well I fixed it so I can play until I replace it, that was my main worry. I knew I would be able to replace it eventually, but just knowing I couldn't play it right then was a bummer. I even had a dream last night that all my tuner pegs were missing off of my ukulele. HAHA! If you send me a set Mike, I will be forever in your debt :)

Thank you for the compliments. I have faith in myself that I can fix it. Although I am hoping I won't have to play it for long because it will be replaced once I save enough for my new Mainland.
