    Lowers my blood pressure by several points, especially after work and 20 minutes of playing.

    "Music calms a savage breast" is a quote from my childhood days - so true.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    I wish that was true.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I don't know if that's strictly true, but I think I really like your doctor!

    Right?!! Should be considered durable medical equipment.... &/or physical therapy, psychotherapy, or some sort of "preventative" therapy...

    If I am playing a uke, checking ukes out online, comparing uke specs, changing strings out on a uke, reading about ukes/players/instruments, listening to uke instrumentals, I am not likely hearing/seeing the latest news headlines at the same time.
    So even if ukes don't lower my blood pressure, ukes certainly prevent mine from shooting up, if only for a moment...
    Tuning your instrument before recording video to be publicly posted is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Stan! I haven't tried this, but maybe I'll check my B/P before and after uke...

    It's a several-years-old ad campaign from Kaiser Permanente, and definitely not just in Hawaii - there were a few of those on billboards in the Los Angeles area some years back. Always made me laugh in a dark-humor kind of way because shortly before those went up I had a tumor that caused secondary hypertension, and it took a heck of a lot more than music to keep it from killing me!
