I found this (http://ezinearticles.com/?Why-Every-Guitar-Player-Should-Learn-the-Ukulele&id=1114962) interesting article that I plan to show a few of my skeptical guitar player friends... :)

It is a good, concise article and I thoroughly agree with the points he makes.

I played guitar for about six years before I started playing uke. I have to say that it brought me out of a rut. I started learning more about theory and song construction.

It is always a good idea to learn a second instrument a it will teach you a great deal.

I teach ukulele and I always encourage my students to sing when they play. Some are a little shy at first, but end up finding it very rewarding.

I have to agree with the article, I have learned so much more form switching to ukulele I probably never would have if I hadn't switched...

Good article and good points. The only problem for me is that I've found myself playing a lot less guitar since I picked up the ukulele. ;)
