Hi Uncle Rod!
My name is Nickie, aka Scooterchick, Ukulelegal,or Viola Harpstrings. Take your pick. I have come to an impasse in my practicing, I seem to play the same stuff over and over again, and am not challenging myself at all. I had an injury in March, and then my BGF and bass player partner passed away in June, so I really got set back. I get really depressed someday, and when I pick up my little uke, the world starts getting a little better. I would like to be your friend on UU, and learn more. Can you help?
Lord Willing, I'll be returning to Honolulu (Palolo Valley) Sunday, July 10th in the evening. I generally like to spend my mornings (Tues thru Friday) in Waikiki attending the free ukulele lessons at the Royal Hawaiian Center with Aunty's Wainani and Puakeala from 10 to 11 am. If you're around, I'd love to meet you. I also try to make it to Melveen Leed's lunchtime concert at the Food Court in the International Market Place on saturdays.
Aloha Uncle Rod and Hauoli La Hanau....
Have a wonderful B-day....Hoping you life this year is as beautiful as your make life for everyone around you!!! Happy Birthday Man!! and Happy Strummings..MM Stan
Mahalo for sharing all your ukulele experience and knowledge with all of us...MM Stan
Hi Uncle Rod
Another one to thank you for your boot camp!
Also a total beginner - BUT want to make a sound start and your boot camp is so far ahead of any "teach yourself" type books/cd's out there!
I'm a total uke newbie. Saw your bootcamp mentioned in the beginners forum. Found the download and wanted to thank you for sharing Looking forward to diving in. Just started taking group lessons @ Artichoke music in PDX.
