    Default What Musical Gifts Did You Get

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. Musical gifts are always exciting to received so here is your chance to share with the rest of us what you got.

    I will go first. I received a pair of Audio Technica ATH -M50x headphones. Gifts cards to Long and McQuad, our big music store in Canada. I am going to buy a good micropnone with that.

    A gift from me to me was a Ono 18" tenor ukulele that was on HMS. I didn't think I would see it before Christmas but it showed up on Friday. I will do a NUD once I've spent some time with it.

    So please share your musical treasures with us, be they large or small........hoping everyone had a great day.

    Count me in the self-giver club...

    Mine was early though, back around first week of November, when scanning for used ukes in various places, I found a used standard LAVA (black) concert Fluke on sale for about half price of a new one...and since I did not yet have a concert Fluke...and I watched it for about 2 weeks and it was still there (not on eBay)...I figured I should give it a new home...WITH ME...

    Four days later it was in my hands

    It was as described in 'Very good condition' and I'm very happy with it.

    My son gave me The Daily Ukulele and a beautiful handmade wall hanger for my ukulele. Very pleased!

    My wife gave me a new Peak SMS-20 music stand and a copy of John King's "The Classical Ukulele." For myself, early last week I took delivery of a Pono ATD-CR Cedar-Top Acacia Tenor ukulele! Things have been quite busy here with holiday preparations and a house guest, so no NUD post yet, but I hope to take care of that soon.

    No pressies this week.

    But I have been generous to myself over the past year, so can't complain.

    That's a larynx lubricator.

    This year I bought both the Opio and Pono (together about $1150), so I wasn't getting much else for my birthday (November) or Christmas.

    A few little gifts did pop up. I was given an Ernie Ball string winder and a set of Martin 620 ukulele strings from my parents, and my wife bought me a laser etched ukulele ornament off Etsy.

    My other "big" gift was a new insulated mug from Starbucks.

    That isn't a lot when you are responsible for the primary income in the house--but my gifts really are the Opio and Pono.

    On the other hand, My wife's aunt asked me to find the song "Christmas will find you" so she could sing it with ukulele--so I transcribed the song and brought it with my Pono to my wife's family Christmas yesterday, so we sat together and sang that, and then as a family sang a number of other songs. By the way--Christmas Will Find You is incredibly LOW for a female singer--and in a ridiculous key--E major. I decided on two alternate keys (A and C) and capoed to E from the C version. (F is also really low...my wife's aunt is a true contralto).
