    Default Hi everybody! I am a new member from Germany..

    Hi everybody and thank you for this wonderful community, I have finally decided to be a member of! Thanks for letting me in!

    My name is Christian. I am an addicted Ukulele player, buying, playing, giving away, buying new, you now this. Have been playing guitar since 40 years, started playing the uke ten years ago, never touched my guitars much since.

    I live in Northern Germany in an old farm house. We have cats, horses, and a dog, but they all refuse learning to play the uke. Horses like listening to uke playing a lot. Cats run away. Dog is not decided yet. He is ignorant.

    Greetings to all of you out there!

    Chris

    Welcome Chris!

    Wow! Your house must be very crowded with all of those animals in it with you.

    I have played for a few cows here in the state of Wisconsin in the USA. The cows liked the music, but it irritated the farmer. And he asked me to leave.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
