Well I am off to play Ukulele with another friend and his instrument for the first time. I have been practicing for a couple months now.

The friend of mine plays a little bit of Piano and plays trumpet. He is classicly trained and I am Ukulele Underground Trained.

This should be interesting... or scary.

Trumpet, piano, and ukulele. Very Unique.

I am not entirely sure I want to post this but....

We did take a video of us playing. Disclaimers... none of us are that good at our instruments. We just started goofing off and were randomly playing stuff.

I apolgize for any damage that watching the following video causes...

That was cool. Need close-ups of the flute player though.

Hmm, I've tried flute and uke as a duet (seeing as to how I can play both...how embarassing) but it doesn't sound too good as a duet. But when you throw in a trumpet, it sort of balances out, and sounded pretty nice. :)
