    Default Hello 👋

    Recent lurker just saying hello now from Sonoma County.

    My wife and I started playing a year ago when we found it easy to strum and carry this wonderful instrument around while still dealing with our young kiddos.

    I've been drawn to Tobias Elof's playing and subscribe to his patreon and I also love watching The Ukulele Site podcasts.

    This place has been a wealth of info as well.

    Cheers,

    Stephen

    Hi Stephen,

    Welcome from another newbie and lurker who joined yesterday!

    I'm hoping that in time one of my children will really show an interest in music. But even if they don't, the music and practising helps me keep sane. And contrary to sitting down with a book, I can listen to their questions, explanations, rows whilst I strum to keep my callouses or study something else.

    Thanks for the welcome all! Hi Ms Bean, we're trying to do the same thing. Started them with kindermusik type class when they were little little and have moved on with Piano and Ukulele. Got lucky with their schools having good music programs too. My son did say he wants to play the drums now though..not sure I'm ready for that.

    I know what you mean about the drums. Though I would be happy if they were serious about it. The digital drum kits are probably enough to get them started, but they seem acceptable for people around. Drummers do get a lovely arm workout, once they fire it up.
