Hey guys,

Well, as you guys are aware that Im living in Australia. The Ukulele instrument that we all have a deep passion about is unfortunately not popular here; so its very hard for me to actually get to interact with ppl that share this love..No shops, No one knows about it.. So the only thing that is motivated to play is obviously my obsession.... and also UU..
I'm logged on everyday to learn more and more about techniques, which instruments is good, strings, wood constructions etc..
I still havent posted a youtube of me playing cos im abit camera shy.. but later down the track, you'll see me on there!
I'm greatly appreciated by all the helpful advice from NukeDOC, Fred Miu, aldrine, Fatboicorp, GX9901, G~Ukes, Ryan,
Dominator for his excellent tabs and videos.. (i got the touch tab off u remember?) and I'm sure i forgot i few ppl, my bad... .. but u guys taught me alot.

I WOULD DIE TO GO TO HAWAII TO MEET UP WITH U FOLKS!! :(

Just like to say thank u.. from the bottom of my ukulele heart!

Nemo :D

but if you die to come to hawaii, then you wouldn't be coming to hawaii..... you'd be dead O_O haha jk. UU is such a great community and everyone here contributes somewhat to the whole experience. We learn about other people's styles, what they're preferences are like, reviews and opinions on certain things, and lots more. it's because of the community here that UU has grown this much. but of course, it all wouldnt have been available without the UU staff. I'd like to add my thanks too :)

I know about the Kiwi Aussie rivalry, so sorry mate.... Anyways, I think the UKE might be fairly popular near you in NZ. Am I correct? I stumbled across a uke video on youtube.com. It had the NZ actor named Bret from "Flight of the Concords" show on HBO. He jamming and singing pretty well with a ton of other uke players up on stage. Check it out. Type in (Bret Flight of the Concords Ukulele) or something to find it??
