    Like Gary52, my interests involve playing and singing old popular favorites of the 30's, 40's,
    50's and 60's along with Hawaiian Songs. I also enjoy Seasonal/Holiday Songs (Winter & Christmas).
    Please check out some of my YouTube uploads (uncle rod amapola, Crazy G, etc)
    I would like to expand the number of uploads... but sometimes think I'm being pretentious
    However, at 72, it may be time to try to 'archive' what I can still do... just for fun!

    Keep uke'in', everyone!

    One day I was surfing YouTube, and accidentally landed on a video by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. I wasn't a musician, and wasn't really sure what an ukulele was.
    But after seeing how much fun they were having, and how the audience was eating it up, we made a quick trip to a music store.
    Now, listening to anyone who can play well, such as Stu Fuchs, Del Ray, Feng E, James Hill, Vinny Mungo, makes me wanna stroke my strings!

    Music washes from the soul, the dust of everyday living.

    As a former guitarist, I was already used to playing a wide variety of styles/genres of music; on the ukulele I expanded that by adding some cracking songs from the 1920s/30s/40s/50s and am generally happy playing 'any song/tune that I LIKE'. That's what it's all about for me, enjoying it and finding others who enjoy it too!
    All power and respect to you Concert,Tenor and Baritone players, but Soprano is what does it for me every time! (And my beautiful Sopranino!)
