Last weekend I bought my self a speed bag(boxing) to work out with and find its great mental work out for keeping time. I still suk and am not very fast yet but like any thing with some practice I should be a real speed demon soon. The timing so far even though I have learned theory and how to read music still is hard but for only 2 1/2 years invested in playin' uke I am pretty stoked :)

If you really want to work on your time keeping, put a metronome on 60bpm and box to that tempo. Keep that rhythm going and "groove" with the metronome. Do it that way, and you'll be surprised how easily you will be able to play/box fast, for extended periods of time.

I never thought I'd run into someone else from Goleta on these forums!

Sounds like you're part of a band that plays around the area. Any upcoming gigs?

Oh. I clicked on the link in your sig and saw some live recordings of a band. I just assumed you were playing in them. :)

Let me know if you feel like getting together and playing some music. :)

My hobby before I took up the uke and got back to surfing after a hiatus was recording music live w/ a microphones>preamp>recorder. These are some of my recordings I made during my taping run. Which I first learned about following the Grateful Dead around;)
