    Default Gordon here, from state of WA

    Hi all, new member here, have been playing the ukulele for about 10 years now, but have played sax, guitar and bass since the 1970's. Seems like the ukulele is taking over most of my musical time these days, what a fun and happy instrument!

    Welcome Gordon. Yep, I'm having more fun with the uke in the last six years than I had playing guitar for almost 50 years.

    Thanks for the info about the STRUM events, I'll have to check it out. I'm way down south in the Kent area but should be able to make it up north one of these days!

    Hey Gordon, STRUM is meeting tonight at the Kona Kitchen Restaurant, 6-8p,
    8501 5th Ave NE Seattle WA. it's located about a mile south of Ngate Mall on
    5th NE at the intersection of 5th NE and Ne 85th St. Great food so come early
    and have some. Many of us have dinner there between 5 and 6p

    our music is generally projected onto a screen so everyone is on the same page.
    no need to bring songbooks Songbooks may be available for purchase, see

    Hope to see you there!
