thanks birthday girl. Its always fun being on stage, especially with those guys. I just got my first uke a couple of weeks ago. Addicted! Have all the major, 7th and minor chords down. Working out 6ths and 9ths. All those years on guitar are transferring fairly well. I do sing a bit, mostly in a bluegrass band context. Love singin tenor harmony.
I've been loving your youtube stuff for at least a couple of years. I think you express a love of what you're doing better than anyone else out there. You Rock!! Now that I'm connected to UU, I learn you're in CHICAGO! I hope to see you around town. I know you teach. Do you perform anywhere?
