HI Everyone :D

I was just settling down to do my essay after a quick play on Rhea for my challenge song (should be able to post that soon) and there was a knock at the door and it was a postman with Hope, my new Tanglewood TU 1CE, Acoustic/Electric Soprano Ukulele with an amp, free lead and everything.

I made a video of me unpacking her so everyone could share in my joy! I'm just uploading it now and will add it to this post!

The amp is sooo cute, and I can't wait to try them both out, gonna have to decide if I put off uni work till tomorrow and play with my new Uke and amp or do it today!...think it's gonna be the latter!! Can't wait to tune her up and get a sound sample for you guys, may have to do my latest challenge with her!

Anyway..YAY for new Uke days!!!

Joey

Congratulations, Joey - She looks like a wonderful instrument. Can't wait to hear something when you have her all tuned up - be sure to play amplified and acoustic for us!

5 ukes now! Woohoo! Nice collection going. Once you pass 9, I'll have to up my game and get another one. Hahha..

Looks wonderful, and the reaction on your face when you opened it was awesome!
Cheers,

It took me a couple of weeks, I just found money from places where normally I'd fitter it away!

Congratulations Joey. Wow...#5 already. I think you may need an appointment with Dr. eugene mate! Don't think I was the only one who couldn't stop smiling as you were opening the box. Really happy for you, she sounds lovely. And 'Hope' is a beautiful name. My nana was called Hope actually. Blessings mate...I'll come and grab you from the waiting room when it's your turn... :o

Hi My Ukulele Friend!

What a fun video! It was like Father Christmas had left something for you at the door! New Uke Days are good, huh?

When can we expect a tune?

Maybe write something like this:


There is little point wasting what relatively little time we have on this earth, pondering 750 words on the subject of Death. Death comes when it will, and it comes to us all. Writing about it will not change that simple fact. Pondering it for an essay will not change the manner in which it comes.

What I could do with the time I have, is get excited and make things. I can practice my music, and really create something worthwhile. I play ukulele, which is an instrument of joy. I can either waste precious moments of my life pondering a death that will come regardless, or I can go out and play. I choose to play.

But most professors are too self absorbed and self important to get that. :)
