Object of this thread is to list a reason, you can make multiple reasons, to why "You know you are a Ukulele player when..."

You know you are a Ukulele player when; you feel uncomfortable when you hold a guitar and think to yourself that there is too many strings.:rolleyes:

You occupy your mall time with watching live lessons

Your friends gave you a nickname pertaining to ukulele

You warm your house with a guitar burning stove....

6 strings it too many, but you don't play bass cuz you can't lift it...(ok i'm a bass player too)

When you hear Headstock, fingerboard, and soundhole its enough to need a cold shower...

you have at least one uke for serious playing, but one set aside to get water damage in the bathtub (thats me anyhow)

you go to a family reunion to pick up chicks...wait thats a redneck joke...

You know you are a Ukulele player when... you have loads of money and flirt about having UAS at online forums by opening threads about how hard it is for you to resist the next purchase, expecting other members to talk you out of it and then back in because it's UAS and you cannot resist anyway.

You know you are a environmentally sound Ukulele player when... you buy an ukulele that is way too expensive for the playing abilities you will ever achieve, but still insist that your choice is the right one because "it will kill less trees to get to my Holy Grail than buying one that is a little better every time".

You know you are doomed to be a Ukulele player eternally when... you find that the ukulele's low string tension has spoiled you and even a simple C-chord on the guitar is like burning scorching hell on your tender fingertips.

You know you are a typical online-only Ukulele player when... you actually care how someone pronounces the word instead of how well they play. By the way, "play" is correctly pronounced "pleh".

I don't even want to think about how much it cost...but my first reaction was how many kamakas it could have made. Haha... Or all of the pews in my high school's chapel, which are all solid koa... Or the grand staircase at the Sheraton...

Don't burn it! they make terrific coffee tables and great conversation pieces. Screw four legs into the top - you can buy them at most hardware stores then you have a nice little table to rest your tea cup and music stand on while playing the uke.

Just keep in mind you have to put the legs on the front, otherwise all the strings and pickups make it difficult to place your tea or coffee without it spilling. This, for example, is wrong:

You know you are a uke player when you start bribing people at work into doing things they don't want to do by offering to play a song on your uke for them... and it works! (I did this to get all my students to turn in their papers. It worked! Better than threatening them with bad grades)

You know you are a uke player if you have ever taken a nap while spooning your uke. (Did this too... woke up with string marks on my cheek. I should really have made him breakfast the next morning...)

You wake up with 2 ukuleles lying next to you? (I just did)
Your already deciding on your next new ukulele purchase before your last one has arrived in the mail.
You spend hours a day on Chordie.com looking for new songs to try.

You have stopped telling "Portagee" jokes because of your appreciation of this wonderful instrument they gifted to the Hawaiian culture.

You would rather see Jake Shimabukuro then any other concert the same night. Also while trying to convince your non uke playing friends to come you say something like "he is like the Jimmy Hendrix of Ukuleles". lol or at least I do :D

you have all your ukuleles signed by Jake and he remembers EVERYTIME you ask him to sign it.

For real, and not only the looks...
Hiro is the great hero who can stop time, but he is nowhere without his loyal friend Ando.
See the resemblance? (Besides the stopping time thing of course :))

If you've gotten this far into this thread and you've been shaking your head, yep, done that...

If you have a uke in every room in the house.

If you've been in the Walmart sports section wondering what test weight fish line would make a good e string.

If playing your old guitar makes you feel like a little kid.

when you play a ukelele song and it doesn't come out just right and you tell the persons hearing....
Awh the action was too high...action was too low
strings are dead...wrong brand of strings on the ukulele
the fifth fret was buzzing....the action at the nut didnt feel right...it was out of tune...The saddle wasnt compensated right and the intonation is off. the frets are unlevel...theres a loose brace somewear...the friction tuners are slipping... the strings havent stracthed out yet.. I need low g tuning for that song...I need high g tuning for that song...I can't play it correctly on a soprano I needed a tenor....my fingers were cramping...etc etc etc...

You know you're an ukulele player when the only way you can justify having so many instruments with you wife is opening an ukulele shop!

-You associate Canada with ADF#B.
Lol! that's my favourite one.

You know you're a ukulele player when:

...you see someone playing a cheap Mahalo ukulele, you fight the urge to grab it off them and show them how it's done.

...you justify buying a $1000 uke to your incredulous friends by saying "But...but..it comes from...HAWAII!"

...you are the expert at explaining the difference between a ukulele and a mandolin, banjo, lap steel, bass guitar, or glockenspiel.
