I totally agree.

Brittni is a very talented young woman, who plays with musicality and heart. I would love to see Brittni, and Jake play together someday.

I have all of Ms Paiva's CDs and her DVD, and recommend them to all of you. like Jake Brittni's playing is at a whole other level than most ukulele players.

Welcome Brittni :rock:

What can I say, She's young, she's gorgeous, She's an awesome musician and she plays Uke brilliantly. If I was 30 years younger she'd be in a lot of trouble right now lol.

Welcome Brittini, great to have you as a member here.

Tell us a bit more about yourself and your music, what inspires you ?, who taught you ?, what are your hopes (musically) for the future ?, are you planning a world tour ?

I did a four mile power walk this morning and what did I have pumping on my iPod? Brittni's Tell U What!

For those that love the CD, do as I do, write a review on the site from which you bought it...I did on Amazon. (for those that did not like it, well, hows 'bout you not write a review, lol)

Big fan here of the pretty young lady and her talented contemporary style

And... you ROCK, girl!

I'm not sure why she would want to come back here. I'm still new around here, but there has been 2 recent threads where she trashed pretty good. One when she popped in to say she had a CD coming out and then the still current thread about her ebay listing. Why people are so upset that she plays a different brand uke now is mind boggling to me. As if it's any of our business at all.

I'm new too, but I can only think its like the Mac vs. Pc, iOS vs. android or Korg vs. Moog vs. Roland fanboyism. When someone stops using a brand that you like, you piss on them. Immature in my opinion.

The Purpose of the thread is to make Brittni feel comfortable coming back if she wants to, I am saddened that a few members had said some unkind things about her...while they are just a minority, and UU membership is so vast, I want Brittni know it is not indicitive of all of our views....many of us highly reguard her as one of the best ukulele players in the world and like her work....In hawaiian, we say kuleana which means right or sometimes business.. I know that the few have negatively spoken up and have deep loyality with Koaloha and that is good, but they should not dictate to Brittni about her life choices and her life decisions..It is not any of our business...that is her business....I wouldn't tell you where you should work and you'd probally be offended and hurt eh... I know deep inside Brittni has been blessed in her heart to forgive and move on... I certainly hope she gives us another chance here...

Brittni is great and it's really nice of her to join UU and comment. I've really enjoyed her new album, very jazzy.

It's a shame that some people decided to be babies about her switching brands but I'm sure she understands that the internet is (sadly) full of that sort of stuff (she's on YouTube, comments there can be even worse) and to just ignore the haters.

coolkayaker1
08-12-2012, 03:22 PM
I agree, sporin. The anonymity of the Internet, particularly on YouTube, leads often to more cruel snipes than positive comments.

Things one would not say to performers like Brittni in person ( if for no other reason than her husband, Branden, would likely give them a fat lip) are thrown out there carelessly.

It must be hard to be a performer with an online presence these day. Very.

I'm going to show my support by increasing her youtube video view *AND* will buy her CD.
Well if you don't have the money, at least subscribe to Brittni's youtube channel and like her facebook page.

I am pretty sure proactive support doesn't require to spend money at all the time.

Phil, brother, I care deeply about your plight. If I had some hair on which to use such implements as shampoo I would care even more. Honestly mate, this is nearly as important to me as is the brand of loo paper that JS uses http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?56143-Jake-s-favorite-toilet-paper&highlight=brand+paper+use%3F. Now when it comes to Brittni's ukes, that's not really important cause she could make a plank of pallet wood and a strip of dental floss sound good, so na, don't care. :p

Next album purchase now decided. Rock on, wonderful lady!

One aspect of the ukulele culture that I appreciate is that it appears essentially noncompetitive. Yes, folks want to become better players, but not necessarily better than someone else. I cringe when such comparisons pop up, even when it is a comparison between ukuleles rather than players. The best ukulele is the one which brings you joy to play. The best ukulele player is the one who you are listening to right now, who touches you and inspires you. There is enough aloha to go around, if you want there to be.

I had the good fortune of seeing Brittni perform. She was wonderful, and, a great ambassador for the ukulele. She played her Koaloha. In the audience in front of me was a young ukulele player, obviously smitten with Brittni's playing as well as her instrument. I'd bet that his father, who was with the boy, has since purchased a Koaloha for his son. Maybe now he will get a Kamaka too.

But if I see another slam on a member - famous or not - I will not hesitate to take action. This may be in the form of an infraction or ban - temporary or permanent, depending on the offense.

I PWN3D U= a deliberate misspelling of the phrase "I pwned you" which is in itself a deliberate misspelling of the phrase "I owned you" implying that my skills and intellect are so superior to yours, I might as well own you.

11!1eleventy! = implies to the extreme

Or to put it in schoolyard vernacular: "Ha, ha, I am great and you suck! Times infinity!"

Thanks for sending the two CDs to Germany. They got here in record time and both are awesome. In the wild chance that you come to Germany, I and a few others in my uke club would love to see you play.

By the way, thanks for the Chord building video on Youtube. Got me thinking of chords as more than just pattern, but as made up of individual notes.

Yeah the uke community is weird that way isn't it? You don't see players of other instruments getting so bent out of shape about such things. It's supposed to be about the music. Most musical types have played multiple instruments or know the excitement of a big switch. I don't think individual uke players are any different in that respect.... but somehow put them in a group, and a groupthink insecurity happens. I agree. You'd see a witch hunt. Just look what happens when an artist switches _to_ ukulele. You see angst and hair pulling and hating on it just so that they can seem cool and not mainstream. It's all a bit weird.

Thank you all so very much! It's so encouraging reading your posts. :)

I know there were a few questions earlier in the thread so I'll answer them below:

Webby:
"Tell us a bit more about yourself and your music, what inspires you ?, who taught you ?, what are your hopes (musically) for the future ?, are you planning a world tour ?"

Well...I've been music my entire life. I started off with piano at 4 years old and picked up the ukulele when I was 11.
Many things inspire me, actually. Usually whatever makes me happy will give me inspiration; although, there are some instances where being sad or mad will give me inspiration too, haha.
I took ukulele lessons for two years from a friend of my grandfather here in Hilo. It eventually got to the point where I didn't feel as challenged as I wanted to feel so I convinced my parents and grandparents that I could learn more if I taught myself. I could learn what I wanted, when I wanted, and at the speed I wanted.
In the future, I really hope to become a producer and songwriter. I really enjoy helping others make their creative dreams happen so I hope that I'll have that opportunity someday.
As for a world tour...... ya never know what could happen! ;)

I think Brittni may be too modest to say so but she can (and often does) play many instruments other than the ukulele. She's a virtuoso of virsatility. We're just happy she's made her claim to fame on the uke.

She is so cool! Just her being on this website, speaks volume of her love for the uke! You know she's good when she plays with Tommy Emmanuel and her version of Europa is one of my favorite!

Got to hear her at Roy Sakuma's Ukulele Festival this past July. She is a really fine player who really gave a nice performance. She also came across as a nice, humble person, very much the way Jake comes across to the audience. Jake was also there to close the show and I agree it would have been nice to hear them play together. Maybe next year. She's also really cute!
I have spent practically every July for the last 20 years visiting my wife's family on Oahu and finally got to go to the festival. It was such a nice day, so many really accomplished young players mixed in with some of the older stars. Ohta San and his son also performed. Brittini can hang with any of them and deserves all the praise she gets. The future of the uke is in good hands.

I will add my Aloha to this thread,Welcome Brittni !!! I first saw you play a few days ago on the you-tube,I'm sold and now a fan.The fact I don't have your CD's or DVD is a deficiency that will be corrected soon.

I apply a surfing adage to uke players,Who is the best surfer ?,why the one having the most fun !!!

I dont care what uke is used I just appreciate talent...

Again Welcome Brittni

When I was explaining to a very skeptical friend that I wanted to start playing Ukulele, I directed him to a video of Brittni playing Take 5. He said, "no, I guess it really isn't a toy!"

So, oddly, Brittni was part of the reason a 63 year old guitar player started becoming an even older Ukulele player. So, Thanks?
