There may have been a thread like this in the past.
Do people now call you the ukulele guy or ukulele lady, ukes, uke dude, ukulele, etc.?
If so, you have made it! :cool:

They just call late for dinner because I'm always practicing my uke.

Once I was in a big leadership training session that only a select number of people were invited to, and they asked how many of us played musical instruments. I raised my hand, and the facilitator asked what instrument I played. I said the ukulele and the facilitator said something like 'so you're that guy'. Everyone laughed. And I didn't care.

I sometimes play with a Folk Music Society and I am the only Ukulele player there.

I was made fun of at first , since they figured I would not be heard, but I was playing in a range those folkie guitars just dont get to. Like icing on the cake. Like a soprano among tenors.
