    they say that 10% of beer drinkers buy 90% of the beer, and that may be true of ukes, too. If you get one and aren't serious, you play the one you got. If you get serious, you experiment and buy...

    tenors are practically guitars, in sound and feel, and everybody likes guitars! I view the sopranos as little violins and get out of guitar mindset completely.
