I've been posting on YouTube for some time, but yesterday posted my first song on which I play a ukulele.

I received a uke for my 8th birthday, and that set me on a musical course. I switched to guitar at age 12, and played professionally for quite a few years. But I've recently returned to my uke roots.

My opinion: In comparison with a guitar, the uke's 4 strings can be heard more vibrantly, so the chords are clear and bright.

This song was recorded with one of those Vietnam ukuleles, made by Bruce Wei. I know their reviews aren't good, but I've had no problems. I read about possible cracking, so I've kept a humidifier in its case. 46213
