UU wouldn't be what it is today without the generous help of its members.

Use this thread to thank a member that helped you out!

My first thanks goes to Kanaka916. He may be the most under-appreciated person on these boards. A lot of what he does never gets noticed, much less thanked.

So thanks for all you do for the site, Kanaka916!

There are so many. I'll be back here often. But I'll start with hoosierhiver, valerie, buddhuu, sven and two dogs plucking (yeah that's his username). And the mods.

Y'know, generally anyone who contributes by posting, answering questions, generating ideas with the aloha spirit. There are so many in this community... That's what keeps us addicted to this board.

Good call Seeso, Kanaka deserves more credit.

So do you Mr. Awesome! :D You are rock solid!

and how about a shout out to Awesome Aaron who helps keep UU running from behind the scenes.

Thank You Ken Middleton for helping me learn Blackberry Blossom!


Thanks to everyone here who has taken the time to put together tabs! & seeso for organizing them....I know it takes some time to do that & I really appreciate having a clickable list of tabs!

Thank you Dominator for Gypsy Ukulele.....Jeesh it's proving to be quite a challenge..lol

Long live Bobby Carrots!


My predictable thanks goes to seeso. He often throws himself into situations he really would rather not be in and is always around to help others. Since i've been here it's been easy to keep the positive vibes going when he's always setting good examples.

Seeso's right in saying that Kanaka doesn't get the credit he's due. I know that i'm thankful to have mods who care so much. So a big thank you to all of you.

Finally - Buddhuu hasn't directly helped me but if you go into the Beginner sections then it's hard to find somebody that he hasn't already helped. Great work, man.

Everyone here is very awesome! A special shout out to 1014 for helping me with a string thing.:)

Seeso, JJ, Ken, Dom, Kanaka916 have either helped me personally or I have benefited from the help they have shared in response to questions from others.

The same is true of plenty of other peeps too. If you ever helped me, or posted something useful that I may have seen, THANK YOU ALL! :D

I really want to thank everyone who has the courage to put vids up on youtube. You serve as an inspiration and fountain of knowledge for those of us coming to the scene. Watching you all play reminds me of how good the uke can sound. Thank you.

It might be more general, but it would take too long to list every one individually.

My special thanks go out to Deach. We've never met, and he may not have helped me directly, but his is the spirit of UU. We should all be so "deachy"....

Every member here is part of something big! Without the members keeping UU alive, the forum would've faded into internet obscurity. So many friendships wouldn't exist, so many songs would go unlearned or unwritten, and so much knowledge would never find its way to others if it wasn't for this living, breathing community.

Even the folks who only come here to ask questions deserve a pat on the back. Without them, the answers are just stewing in someone's brain and there'd be no reason to post them. If you've ever used the search function and found an answer, chances are someone was in the same boat as you and put their question out there. Anyone who sticks around and posts something worthwhile in some way deserves my respect. :D

Deach helped me when we were in the adoption process last year. I was going to be a father for the first time and was getting kind of panicky. Deach gave me some advice that helped me immensely. 11 months into fatherhood I see he knew what he was talking about.

Thank you, Deach.:)

Kanaka 916 He was nice enough to answer my, "What strings" question when I first joined.

Seeso for figuring out "My Little Buttercup" for me

And everyone else who makes this a fun place to be

I know he gets thanked a lot in this forum, but I'd like to thank MGM for picking out, setting up and selling to me a wonderful Kala acacia tenor ukulele. I also want to thank the great people who helped me decide what to buy by responding to my "what to buy" posts: buddhuu, ichadwick, mokai, mailman, redsedge, kuribashi, ukeskywalker79, NewMexicoDawG, ukisociety, ukantor, and molokinirum (I hope I got everyone). This is an awesome forum!

In no order....

Thanks to MCTRMT for standing out on the circus that is YT and getting me to notice the uke, and SamWise for his advice on songs and generally keeping up my interest from his vids - both stars.

Oh, and obviously Deach, without your contest I would never have even dreamt of picking up an instrument - so Up Yours!:D

A big thanks to GX9901. He has really inspired me to be a better player, and really welcomed me into the forums when I was a noob.

Also thanks to KoAlohaPaul for shareing his knowledge here on the forums and being such an awesome guy in person.

Same goes for KaneoheTilTheEnd, uking buddy and inside connection to the ukulele world in real life.

Dino as well, b/c he is the man. :) :)

While not meaning to cause a stir here I did so and I'm am most sorry for that. But the point of my post is to say thank you to all of those who wrote to encourage me to hang out and give UU a chance. I am really glad I have and look forward to chatting with you all- Doug

I know he gets mentioned in every other post but a big thanks to Seeso. Back when I first joined, I asked about a Jack Johnson song. After he gave me the tabs and the strumming pattern, I was still having trouble getting it to sound right. Minutes later, I had a video from him in my PM box showing me how to play the song.

You don't find people like that every day, but oddly enough, you find many people like that 'round these here forums. So, thank you VERY much to Seeso for all of the work you do and all of the crazy tabs you come up with (you posted tabs to the ND fight song, like, instantly....:wtf: You're just awesome for helping everyone out and all of the behind the scenes work you do. Thank you.

And thank you Kanaka as well; many of your contributions may go unseen but they dont go unoticed, thank you!
