If she was looking for the chords for "Medium Pace", they're C, G, F, G and C.

If she is a Mom, she has a job and a half... with no time off. I am sure the ukulele is a necessity for stress relief. And, as a bonus, she might be much more inclined to allocate extra recreational money for more ukes. And, the young one might end up playing too. Imagine yourself in a 3 uke band! It's a good thing.

For you, bring a uke to work, and play during lunch. That's what I do.

This opens up a whole world of fun, believe me. Me and my honey spend our weekend mornings singing and playing together out by the backyard lake, to an audience of ducks, herons and squirrels. Ain't nothin' better. :D

Wow, that sounds like some back yard you got there. When I play in my back yard, I'm lucky if a flock of crows fly over, and they're a tough crowd - best to be under an umbrella when they start dropping their "requests," if you know what I mean...:eek:

You're happy to have a girlfriend who shares your musical interests. Play together: it's the most fun the two of you can have. Well, second most...:D

Yes and yes.
At least it is in my case and it's not like you can practise for an hour at a time. They enjoy it for the first ten minutes then you get books and toys literally shoved in your face asking for attention.

My little one loves to dance while I'm practising but once she's decided to move on to something else that's it and it's "Have you finished?" every two minutes until you admit defeat.
I've discovered that the best time to practise is after breakfast as she's most likely to occupy herself then.

Upside is that she does enjoy it and asks for certain songs or if she can strum the strings.
