    It was alright. Just pretty standard crafty. I wasn't around for any catered meals.

    I didn't get a copy of the script or any episode details - just the song. My guess is that it will air relatively soon since they're right now (as of last episode) starting to deal with the issue...

    If you haven't seen Crazy Ex-Girlfriend yet, it's a very funny musical that airs on The CW. An upcoming episode has one of the cast members playing ukulele. I got to go in and teach the song. It was...

    Hey Hawaiian experts!

    My sister is visiting the big Island next week and wants to find a uke factory tour or just a great place to find a ukulele. All I know of is Hilo Guitars for her to go play...

    I have either an ukulele or a mandolin with me whenever I travel and I always play it at the airport - but I do it in an empty section of the terminal. I too hold the belief that you shouldn't...

    There's an easy little riff that you can do while on that D chord. I play it on mandolin but it's the same on ukulele using your G string (especially if you're strung low G).
    Do the riff as you...

    Thanks Mike! It was much different and more complicated in my head but once I started playing with the PVC, the design became much simpler��

    Hi Soo!

    Sometimes they recognize me. We all have camp names (my camp name is Rockstar) and the kids aren't really supposed to know us off the island. Last year one of the younger kids came up to...

    It's pretty amazing to watch the growth of the ones who really latch onto it. They come back to the island the next year with their own ukuleles. It really becomes a big part of their lives...

    Thanks Rappsy! It's my favorite part of the year.

    Thanks! Those stickers came from a 17 year old who is an amazing ukulele player & singer. She's clearly got multiple talents.

    Thank you! As long as it holds up for a few seasons I'll be very happy with it.

    Thanks Booli! Fortunately there is a little hut/cabin that this will be stored in over night. I don't remember it ever raining in the last 5 years during camp but you never know. If it does, we'll...

    Wait til those alpha kids see a guitar - minds blown!
    We've got 10 sopranos and 10 concerts plus I bring 3 of my own with me. I rarely have a group that large so hopefully everyone will be happy...

    Some of you know that I volunteer at Camp del Corazon every summer on Catalina island as a counselor. I started a music program there - basically any kid (or counselor, nurse, doctor etc...) who...

    Hey everyone, thanks so much for these suggestions! I posted this yesterday and haven't been back on until now to look at these great ideas. This is really helpful. I think I have enough in my back...
  18. I'm playing at a funeral - song suggestions

    Hey guys,
    This is a bit of a downer post. I've been asked to play ukulele at the memorial of my friend's 3 year old child.
    I'm planning to do an instrumental medley but need to figure out what...

    Strumming should not hurt your fingers. You should be just lightly brushing the strings. It's the left hand (the fretting hand) that might hurt a bit after extended playing. Calluses will eventually...

    That sounds like a great organisation! And a fun way to donate the ukes. Let me know when you guys do your performance and I'll come out to watch. Im not far from UCLA.

    Thanks guys! It is for sure a feel good thing to help out with these kids - but if I'm being honest, it also feels good to spend 10 days on an island snorkeling, rock climbing, kayaking, singing &...

    We can at least keep up on each others progress though... The pono is headed to the uke hospital tomorrow and will be as good as new soon - with a few cool scars to give it character.

    I wish! As it is, they start out in a big cardboard box under a palm tree. This year there will be two big cardboard boxes under a palm tree.... Unless I can figure out how to rig a palm tree mounted...
