    Default New old guy

    Hi everyone. I just got my first uke, a Martin T1K from Mim's. I've played stringed instruments for 47 years, starting with violin, then adding acoustic guitar, electric bass, bluegrass fiddle, all members of the mandolin family.

    I'll try not to be too much of that irritating new guy. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to UU, mandobart!

    Enjoy all of you stringed instruments, but I think it will be hard to beat the uke.

    Welcome to the UU Forum mandobart. Enjoy your Martin. I hope it holds your interest and it's fun for you to play.

    Yes. I'm in Benton county. Very dry. Nearly no precipitation. But I'm at the confluence of three big rivers that collectively drain all the rain and snow between the Cascades and Rockies. So there is a lot of irrigation. Here is where all the apples, cherries, pears, peaches, plums, apricots, wheat, hops, asparagus, onions, lentils and potatoes come from.

    Google shrub -steppe. That's us.
