This spring I attended the Reno Uke Fest and offered, on this forum, to share my custom MooreBettah tenor with people attending; all they had to do was ask.

I took pix (and they included lots of folks on this board) and wrote a bit about why Mom was always right when she said it's important to share.

Read about it here: http://ukuleletonya.com/blog/2013/08/didnt-mom-always-tell-you-to-share

P.S. Sorry for the delay in getting up to date on my posts (Reno was *months* ago!) but work so gets in the way of the real part of life!

Oh, I don't have a double neck--but Chuck let me play it years ago when I was on the Island of Hawaii during the Big Island Ukulele Guild annual show and that's where the photo on my site came from. What an instrument that was! But I was really unsure where to put my hands--it kinda felt like holding on to a bagpipe as far as being a totally unfamiliar feeling.

I received my MB today and can't put it down. I now all understand the hype of playing such a fine instrument. I'm with you Tonya, I can't wait til our next uke gathering in Sept. and coax everyone who wants to try it to do so. It adds their energy into an already healing instrument.

Since it's for my B'day, I get to play it tonight and then "Two Feathers" will be put away til my B'day on the '23rd. I think I'll be up til 3 in the morning lol. Bless you for your big heart, I'm sure everyone will remember the day they got to play such a wonderful instrument.

Nice website, I added it to my "favorites" list.
