I'm very proud to be a ukulele player. It has opened my doors into a world of stringed instrument playing.

However, I think many ukulele players would have felt at some point in their journey, the feeling of "missing" strings due to how mainstream 6 string guitars are.

This performer put things into perspective for me, that it doesn't matter how many strings you have.
You can groove with just one!

and if you feel you don't have enough strings, try the baroque lute...

One reason why one string basses are so popular among cigar box instrument makers.

Or a floor harp...

I settle for my 8-string tenor. Just the right amount of strings...
