Thread: Hello from the Santa Cruz Mountains

  1. #1

    Default Hello from the Santa Cruz Mountains

    Hi!

    I'm Megan, I've been playing uke for two years and I love it to death. I lead a ukulele club for homeschool kids, I attend as many of the Santa Cruz uke events as possible, and I carry one of my five ukes with me everywhere, much to the consternation of my husband, who prefers guitar.

    I'm here to learn new things! I'd like to make a uke sometime in the next year; the mountains where I live have a ton of redwood and madrone trees and I'd like to learn how to make a uke from scratch. I also collect Harmony ukes and they often need repairs, so I'd like to learn to do that right.

    Well met, fellow ukers!

    Megan
