Hello UU members
became a member a few weeks ago but just didn't have a chance to introduce myself. Much apologies!!

I am originally from Hawaii, having relocated to San Diego about 16 years ago. I have been playing the Ukulele since the late '70s, mostly strumming and playing Hawaiian songs. I have been jamming off and on with the Hawaiian Hui here in San Diego, not a consistent member because of my travels.

I presently have 3 Kamaka's; Soprano, 6 string & 8 string...and just a few hours I am the proud owner of my dream ukulele; a Martin Tenor 12 fret which I got from today from Whendogsings. I also have a Brazilian Rosewood Tenor being made by the nice folks at Mya Moe Ukulele. It should be completed sometime in mid January 2011, can hardly wait. many thanks to Whendogsings for making my dreams come true. I have just, thanks to my son, regained interest in the art of picking and am fervently practicing. I will post or respond to posts as often as I can...Aloha to you all.

Mahalo
