    Default Play Your Ukulele Day

    Did you know that yesterday was International Play Your Ukulele Day? I found out about it last night, but I did play for a couple of hours.

    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Think of it this way to remember it.

    2 (day) + 2 (month) = 4 (strings on a uke)
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    I wish I had known! I read about ukulele exercises/practice, looked at ukes, cases and tuning machines online and read uke posts on Ukulele Underground so I did almost everything but play one!

    I looked thru new posts to see if someone had posted about play your ukulele day and missed seeing your post so I posted my own.

    Some thing about checking new post, it doesn’t show me all the new posts, and I sometimes cannot find my own posts.

    I thought that every day was play your ukulele day. At least, I try to celebrate it every day.

    Too bad it doesn't get more publicity. There could be a lot of fun and entertaining events that could encourage people to give ukulele a try.

    I like that memory trigger, 2+2=4. In the morning I played my bass uke for a uke class recital to which I was invited, and also played my newly acquired used Fluke later during the UCLA basketball game (they lost, again).


    9 tenor cutaway ukes, 5 acoustic bass ukes, 11 solid body bass ukes, 8 mini electric bass guitars (Total: 33)
