Congratulations, Mabs. I'm so sorry to hear of your friend's passing. My sincere condolences. Dedicate the first song you play on your new Flea to your friend. I'm sure she's listening.

Thank you for your kind replies :)

She didn't take it too well but seemed ok a whil later.. I think she was just bein supportive.

Although I don't know any songs yet I'm learning white sandy beach. Its a beautiful tune with a lovely feeling to it. That shall be her song..
I'm also dedicating a marathon I'm going to run to her. She was one o those truly amazing people thatmade this world worth living in.. Forever shall she be missed.

Anyways...
Cheers again folks.
I'll let you know how I get on with the song :)

Please accept my condonlences. The uke is very therapeutic...I picked up the uke only after my wife was diagnosed with cancer 5 years ago...everything is good now, but it was a rough time that was eased by the ukulele. I too lost a best friend very tragically and dedicated a song to him. The uke works magic. Congrats on your flea, and good luck with White Sandy Beach...oh yea and your gf...

Grief's a strange old thing and it could be that you and your girlfriend are dealing with the same thing in very different ways. There's a Buddhist prayer which has the words 'may those weak with sorrow find joy'. Sounds like your bit of joy is flea shaped. I hope your sweetheart finds hers soon. Very best wishes from another slice of Celtic fringe here in Wales.

I'm very sorry to hear about your friend. But I believe you when you say the uke will help. Whenever I get really stressed or upset, picking up my uke instantly lowers my blood pressure.

Enjoy your flea. :music:
