    I've played guitar since 1966 (& still do), then included mandolin, and finally added Uke to the mix in more recent years.
    I added Uke because it's so easy to mess with while watching TV or traveling...

    I've played guitar for 20ish years, but I'm very much a strum and sing kind of guy. I'm much more technically proficient on the uke.

    I started my musical journey at age 10. I played clarinet and took lessons in the Public School System in New Orleans, La. I played clarinet off and on until my mid 30's when I took up accordion for a year or two. In my thirties I also took up and played tenor and alto sax. I played in the Coast Guard Concert group for awhile before retiring in 1978 at age 40. Still having two children at home I was forced to take on another job as my retirement was nice but not enough for a family of four with school aged children. So I dropped music for awhile except for playing around with the accordion. I loved the accordion but could never be comfortable with the weight and the over powering bass.
    At age 59 I think, 1997 I was already back into retirement and bored so I took up guitar for the first time. Learned to strum and play electric guitar with another retired friend, a musician,. We only sang and strummed for fun. Two years later I dropped guitar and took up piano for the first time. I took lessons from a professional for 21 months. Later just a few years ago I decided to take up guitar again along with the piano and found out the horrible truth. My hand and wrist no longer were guitar friendly. So September 2017 I got my first Baritone Ukulele. Later a Tenor Ukulele and lately an Aria guitar with a 20 inch scale. I love and play all three. Baritone being my favorite. I still play piano some. I never played professionally. Music is my hobby and my life.

    I started on uke. Then I bought a guitalele. I'm not very good at it yet. Yesterday I played a guitar for the first time. Does that mean I play the guitar? Probably not...

    I own a guitar, but I only know how to play a few songs on it.
    I had a guitar for like 20 years, ukuleles for four years.
    The good thing about ukulele - it is easier for strum and sing purposes. Odd jazzy chords are easier to learn with four strings than six. And is has that particular sound.

    I like the guitar too, but as someone else also said, I had stopped learning new songs and only played the same songs when I picked it up. Never practiced enough to develop further. With the uke, progress is quicker.

    I played guitar for almost 50 years before I started to play ukulele 6 years ago. A year later I started to play bass uke/mini bass guitar. I hate to disappoint, but since then I haven't touched my guitars and even went so far as to give my nephew my Ibanez AF-85 VS archtop and my Fender Telecaster. I also gave to a couple of people in my Sunday acoustic play-along my Ovation Applause 12 string acoustic and my Ibanez exotic 6 string acoustic, that's how dedicated to the ukulele I am.

    I started ukulele about 20 months ago and semi-switched to guitar 10 months ago. I played flute for 10 years as a kid so i could read music and knew some theory before i started. I may switch back to ukulele as my main as i am primarily a singer and i sing much better playing ukulele than guitar as it is somewhat easier. Also all my nieces and nephews play ukulele so family xmas time is a big ukulele party.

    I gave up, and sold my Six String, a dozen years ago.
    So I once played the guitar — or murdered it might be a better description
