    Default Hi from Western Australia

    So, I decided while in lockdown that I was going to learn the piano and guitar.

    Walked into a music shop, bought my keyboard (which remains untouched) and saw the cutest ukulele. Started nosing around and found a Cordoba 15cm which arrived 10 days ago. Barely put it down. Not sure what happened but am very happy with my choice.

    So much fun and now I can't feel my fingertips on my fretting hand which I think is a good thing! I am already looking at different sizes and alternate tunings (not for the Cordoba) for smaller instruments assuming the post ever gets remotely back to normal. I don't think we have a ukulele shop in my state (no uke specialist shops for thousands of miles) and not enjoying buying online.

    Yes, lots of music shops have them but I would LOVE to spend some time in a specialist uke shop like World of Ukes, Southern Ukes or Mims Ukes in the US. So many pretties out there. Looking forward to being able to visit a couple of the groups.

    Welcome from halfway round the world!
    Soprano is what does it for me every time!*

    *Other Scale sizes are available and very popular with many players.
