Hi,

I've just discovered my first musical instrument, my Uke :)

Just a cheapie, bought just 2 days ago. Just replaced the TERRIBLE strings with
some Aguila, and bought a Chromatic tuner, loads better already.

Already hooked, no going back now:)

Hey Tony! The uke was pretty much my first instrument, too (okay, first one I've played with any seriousness). The chromatic tuner was a great buy! Hang on while the strings settle - it can be a bit frustrating for a few days, but they'll get there.

Uke on! :shaka:

Here's a welcome from yet another Brit - though I prefer to call myself English, out of respect for the Scots, Welsh, and Irish.;)

There seems to be a number of you Scousers taking up the uke. Time to think about forming a club, or an informal meeting in a pub, perhaps?

Hi Tony,

Welcome to the best uke resource on the web! Not been here long myself, but got loads from the great people on here.

I'm not too far from you, I think I already said in another thread.

Just for your info, there IS a uke club, in Huyton, been myself a few times, and its pretty good.

Enjoy your ukulele playing and making music
