I got to assess a young ukulele player today for his bronze Duke of Edinburgh award. He had to finger-pick one tune (The Entertainer) and show varied strumming on 3 songs (Kids, Mardy Bum & Five Year's Time). He did a great job and I was pleased to help a new ukulele player with their development. :)

Wow, that's great. When you blokes get serious about something, you do tend to "do it up right." Special that you get to be a part of that process. Long live ukes.

I thought that the D-of-E was all about getting teenagers horribly lost on improbably long hiking routes in the middle of nowhere, Or have they stopped all that now? (health and safety gone mad, kids of today don't know they're born, jumpers for goalposts etc.)

I want to learn Mardy-Bum and play it LOUD when her indoors has a cob on sometime :D
