View Full Version : New UU Member...

howzit UU people! I'm fairly new to the site, I've been a member for a little bit, just reading through all the threads and trying to pick up as much info as I possible can.

I'm pretty new to playing the uke too (playing on and off for a couple years)... got a handmade curly koa tenor from my parents (made by my uncle) for my 21st birthday. I've just been listening to my local music, trying to find the tabs on Tropical Storm Hawai`i and just learning on my own. like everyone else, I'm still having problems picking up the strumming patterns on some songs, especially Ka`au Crater Boys songs.

anyway, hopefully I'll get to meet with some of the San Diego members and get some tips and advice so I can hopefully play my ukulele to it's full potential!

Hey Sheldon, welcome to the forum! Glad to see you speaking up! Being in the SD area, you're coming to the jam on the 23rd, right??

Welcome to UU! You'll love this site! My playing ability and knowledge have really, really increased since joining this site. There's soooo much community knowledge and the community shares it's knowledge very willingly. Have fun exploring the site and keep jammin' on your uke!
(that's pretty cool that your uke was made by your uncle as a gift from your parents. it's personal on so many levels)
