Well I have now officially been indoctrinated to the uke. I have been playing a couple of months and today I went a had my first lesson! I went to the North Carolina Ukulele Academy with Kent Knorr. It was fantastic. Have some new strumming techniques to work on! Can't wait to get that "fan" strum down! Just wanted to share!

That is great! It is always good to have someone show good techniques and taking lessons speeds up the learning process.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks. This stemmed from a comment I saw about actions. A buzz can come from bad set up or bad technique on a good setup. I really felt the latter applied to me and had to nip it in the bud.

That's great... It's inspiring to get something to work on and know it is right. Plus to see others that can really play! Good luck with your fan strum!!
