edit: heres a video to prove it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSTDrNkBhho I'm so happy! Also when I went into my local shop to buy some aquila strings he said you know we have a uke club on a Thursday night and they have a gig soon. He said I can come down and join! This week is much better than the last that's for sure

That is great! Glad you're feeling better, and that is VERY cool about the uke club. I don't even know if there are any other players around here. My wife suggested that I try to form one, but there isn't even really a local music store to look for uke players. The closest place that sells ukuleles is about 60 miles away. I guess I could stick flyers up and see if anyone called...

Thanks guys I don't know what to expect from a uke club as I've never played properly with anyone else. I know I'll have to tune my uke up to the key of c though lol

Yay! Glad you're feeling better and even better that you've got a club to join! Hope the shoulder stops giving you problems now!

A different tuning is not a bad thing for a group, yes your chord shapes will be different but it will add to the group sound. So unless you really want to retune I would stay with what you have.

Glad you get to play again! I know how much pain is involved with shoulder dislocations. Congratulations on finding the uke club too!
