I pair the ukulele with my poor singing because it is awesome enough to make up for my voice :cool:

You're on to something with Melodica. I thought a couple of months ago that would be my next purchase, but ended up getting a new guitar and then a new uke first. Now I may pull the trigger on one so we can mess with it at the SS Ukers jam.

Others: Jaw Harp (Snoopy brand), Bongos

Not piano. I played uke in church last Sunday, and the pianist was playing along in practice. I told her to cut it out.

kazoos seem an appropriate condonment as well.

Melodica + Uke is awesome. My friend and I covered (the nirvana cover) of Jesus Don't want me for a sunbeam and I think it's played on guitar + accordian so uke+melodica makes it prettier. Plus the original version is a 1/2 step up than the cover so it sounds good on uke like that.

Also oddly enough uke sounds good with a theremin (my friends song)

speaking of Melodica's, I haven't ever found a good local place for one and searches online always turn up some weird giant monstrosities... anyone know of a good (cheap) melodica?

Uke Republic had it right: ukulele, cheese and wine. Perfeck!

The options are far too endless. I've watched a couple video's that people here have done and have been having the urge to put a string quartet behind them. I think a concertina may be nice. Djimbe's are always a good bet too.4

I was at a junk store a few months back and saw a small homemade steel drum, like the big 55 gallon kind, but really small, maybe 10 inches across. Whoever made it wrote the notes in their places in magic marker. Had a couple of small mallets too. It's gone now. I wish I had bought it.

Try many many many Mai Tai's :p and add some poor singing. But as the Mai Tai's disappear, the singing will improve......greatly!!:cool:

Red wine, sometimes 100% agave tequila.

Dr. Pepper and anything... yuck. All that sugar....why ruin food with corn syrup?

Ah - I understand. You can't ruin what's already junk... it just becomes syrupy sweet junk instead...

i pair it with kazoo, this indian type wind instrument, melodica, and some guitar, oh and drumming on random objects....i play all these *i wing it, because i cant really play them lol* but i play all these to add some sound, also to distract people from my horrible singing, the melodica sound pretty cool though:shaka:

wine and cheese, NO WAY, that's classical guitar territory. Maybe with a flute playing prissy music from NPR.

I think the Hawaiians got it right, foo-foo drinks with umbrellas, loud shirts and orchids, a lei around the neck, etc.

I'm sort of hoping a clarinet will go with uke since that's what I play, but I don't think it will.
