    Sell one more uke, enjoy what I have, not buy anymore just for buying sake.
    2018 was a wonderful learning curve, buying, trying, adapting, selling on those that didnt fit the bill.

    1. Perfect various strums to the point they are rock solid and I don’t have to worry about them.
    2. Get some fingerpicking patterns down as well.
    3. Attend a Uke Festival or two.

    To use my uke books. I have many really great ones, and I have only learned one or two songs out of each of them. I would like to at least sight read all of them well. I think I spend too much time internalizing one or two songs so I can play from memory and then moving on to another book.

    1. Start playing with others, which may help,
    2. figure out strumming patterns better. For some reason, finger picking feels much easier to me.
    3. Take another voice class.
    4. build myself a cookie tin banjo uke that works for me. Can't find one I like in concert size so I figure I have to build it. I really wish Duke made one in this size I love the sound of the tenor but it's just too big to play. Finished my first one. The sound's not bad but the action's too high. Tried to post it yesterday, but the evil 503 ate it.
    5. After I settle 4, sell the Duke and keep it to the two concerts and the banjo ukes. I'll buy myself a better one as a gift for when I'm better.
    6. Learn some music theory

    Try to practice every day.
    Try to get at least a little comfortable playing in front of other people.
