View Full Version : It's good to be a "ukulele dad"

Thought I'd share this with you all and maybe hear about similar experiences from some of you fathers out there.

I bought a banjo uke off of ebay about a week ago. In preparation for it, I started watching some George Formby videos on youtube. Much to my surprise, my two year old daughter LOVES "She's Got Two of Everything". This little girl won't sit still for very much, but every time I fire it up, she runs to the computer and sits there watching, smiling, and singing along.

Very cool to watch my little one diggin' on this stuff.

That's cool and kids are really special at about that age. When my grandsons that live with us were two and three they used to come running to my home office every time they heard me on the uke. They're a year older now and have gone on to other things but I have great memories of watching the two of them standing in front of me holding fake microphones, swaying and singing made-up songs as I strummed random chord progressions.

Too bad they eventually become teenagers... :biglaugh:
