mmm... UAS meds.... lots of brands.... Kala... Koaloha... Pono... Martin... G-String.... DaSilva...


Of course, I have a rather complex case.... IAS (instrument, not just ukulele).

It hurts.

Especially when you're also a DIY freak and decide to blow a ton of money on parts to make an electric cello from scratch... but that's besides the point.

Anyhow. Back on subject.


And yeah... it would help if (our) parents played the uke as well, as then there'd be at least a few family ukes sitting around....

im kinda glad my parents don't start playing instruments... because i couldn't stand it, i can hardly stand me playing the uke.... so i don't think i could handle another person in my house sounding bad... even thoguh by saying that - i know i annoy them..

the thing that i don't understand is that my parents don't understand money hahaha - if they like it, they say "ill buy it" with out looknig at the price... but they will say to me "why spend $1000 on an ukulele or phone or ipod etc.." when you can buy clothes, buy stuff for you car etc..

i don't think i will ever get an ukulele bought for me haha :D people don't understand.

Well as a parent of a teenager, I would much rather buy my kids a ukulele than a Wii, guitar hero, rock band, a wii fit, a new cellphone, more computer... uh... well, um... not that I've actually bought those things for my kids... ;)

Also, if it's any consolation, I only have three ukes and only one was just a little over $100. So even though I'm an adult, I still haven't gotten the uke I really want. Yet...

I've been thinking of getting that uke in concert, or the Ohana RoundBack spruce top. I have a Mahaogany tenor and am looking to get a concert of a different wood. Anybody got any suggestions? I'm waiting on the koa until I get better at the uke but want to have all three sizes.

I'm on the other side of this one. I have a 10 year old who is so used to me playing music that he's unphased by it. A while ago he had a friend over & they were upstairs playing, came trampling down the stairs to find me sitting playing my uke & singing. My son kept running by me to continue whatever mission they were on, but his friend stopped dead. "Come on! She's just playing her ukuele!" my son yells.

Someday he'll figure out that he isn't growing up in the most normal of households... and hopefully appreciate it ;)

I'm not quite thirty, and I can name a lot of the ACTORS in those shots. But I grew up watching a lot of old TV.

My Three Sons, Ozzie and Harriet, Leave it to Beaver, and... Who the heck are THOSE people?

The little girl looks like Angela Cartwright, who played Linda on Make Room for Daddy. The other two kids look the part, too. And the wife, well, there were two wives, I always had trouble there. But if that's Danny Thomas, it's the worst picture of him, ever.

I'm not old at all-- well, compared to a lot of people here I am, but in the grand scheme of things, I'm not. I just like old tv.

I remember that show, now. God, it's too treacly for me-- and the girls having names like "Princess" and "Kitten"? ugh.

I remember when we got our first Black & White console TV. Before that it was just a big family radio and dad playing guitar, piano and accordian. I made sure my children grew up with music and instruments, as well as my grandchildren, following a musical family tradition. This is my youngest granddaughter, about a year and a half ago (she's two and a half, now)

That's a Kawai Acrylic, Sally, at the Museum of making music. I gave her the two small pianos and a Casio student 37 key keyboard (she has most of the buttons figured out), along with a set of mini bongos, several recorders (songflutes) and a ukulele. Lots of shaker percussion, too. My daughters and granddaughters get anything they want, when it comes to musical instruments. A sore point, with my wife! LOL! I love the phrase "It's easier to ask for forgiveness, than permission!"! Ric

He plays trumpet in the school band, & I'm working on teaching him the ukulele- thanks to Mr Deach :D . Unfortunately, at his age, he expects to be able to pick it up & do a solo automatically. I can't force it on him, just have to wait/hope it'll click.

My mother played ukulele a little bit when she was a teenager. She gave me my first uke for Christmas 2005 along with her old, brokedown uke from her teenage years. I put it in a case and haven't really thought about it. Hmm, perhaps I should fix it up...
