Ha I just got the cedar kala I ordered from mgm.
well I actually got it an hour ago but I was too busy playing it to go on UU.

I just learned my first song
Waiting in Vain by Bob Marley
pretty easy
good song though

Any song suggestions for a beginner?

Check the Tabs Listing (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5507), you may find something you're familiar with.

Don't sweat a little ding. I got a Flea on tuesday night and within an hour I had knocked it off a table. ;) And my Kamaka has so many fingernail marks on it from practicing five-finger rolls that I've given up on trying to keep it pristine. Consider it a battle scar!

Ding?

Nah.

It's "character". All musical instruments sound and play better with a little bit of character on 'em.

(And if you don't believe me, go talk to Glen Hansard (http://www.altfg.com/Stars/actorsh/hansard-glen.jpg). :D )

thats good to hear. Thats one of the best beginner tutorials on the web. Next I would try some of the original lessons here on UU. They are even better! :D just remember to practice practice practice.(broken record broken record broken record)

This thread is useless with out vids. j/k. I'd love to see how your new Kala sounds though. I hear the newer Kala's are much better than previous years.

Oh, and you can try to learn Drop Baby Drop. There are two other songs that use the same chords (Honey Baby & So Wonderful). Kill three birds with one stone ;)
