I can't remember when the last time there was a
gov't furlough that affected me, but now -due to this gov't
furlough, I'm out of work!
That's ok:) - this gives me time to work on my books 3 & 4!
Mahalo nui loa to all those who are enjoying my first 2 ukulele
books - available at www.pekelosbooks.com

I'll be performing onstage at the 3 Days of Aloha
in Vancouver this weekend with my halau!

Sorry to hear about the work situation comrade, I know a few things about hard times as I was a kid in Scotland during the late 70's and 80's when we had one of the highest rates of unemployment in the whole of Europe, Indeed my father had to move the whole family south of the border to England for work (settled in Manchester for a few years before returning home at 17/18). Back then Everyone had numerous family members and friends out of work or was out of work themselves, you just have to keep going at it man!

Being out of work is no good, but if it gives you time to complete books 3 and 4, I can guarantee you that you'll have at least one buyer :)

The first two books arrived on Saturday and I've been spending time with them every day. I've written a bit more here (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?42317-New-Hawaiian-style-fingerpicking-instruction-books!!&p=738821#post738821) about it.
