Hi everyone,
I'm brand new to the site, and to ukes in general! A bit inspired by a uke band I saw playing a while back, and the whole atmosphere looked fun and relaxed.
Anyway as far as playing goes, I'm a bassist, I don't tend to play a standard uke, and I have lovely little electric u bass along with several standard bass guitars.
I'll be hopefully getting to know you all, and hopefully meet people for jams etc

Cheerio

Welcome to UU, Boomboomboom!
There's quite a lot of stuff you can teach yourself from YouTube teachers. Hopefully you'll then find a few uke buddies to have fun together!

Hey, welcome to the forum! I must be a bit dyslexic or something. At first I read your Title as "Hello from North West Uke." I had never noticed that the Uk (UK) is just "Uke" with a missing "e." Hum .... perhaps we could get the Canadians to add it on, eh?

Welcome Boomboomboo , our band's looking for a Bass player if your in the Blackpool area ?
That sounds interesting - I'm not in the Blackpool area, I'm more towards Manchester - maybe around 30 miles or so from you. However saying that, I dont mind travelling a little very couple of weeks depending - why not PM me about your band and I will see if I fir in at all? :)

a nice post - and made me chuckle! I'm guessing by your name you're from Vegas? My younger brother lives there!
