Thread: S'craic?!

    Default S'craic?!

    Alright!
    Just joined there and figured I'd actually do a post instead of perpetual lurking. 30ish male from Ireland, bene playing Uke on and off for about 8 years and really gotten into it since I bricked my guitar at the start of the pandemic

    Been learning scales and some music theory lately, really trying to up my understanding of this class little instrument.

    Playing a Kala KA-TEM with a low g, last song I learnt was 96 quite bitter beings (tabs courtesy of EatMyUke).

    Looking forward to getting some more insight from the community!

    Craic kreak krak or crack is a term for news, gossip, fun, entertainment, and enjoyable conversation, particularly prominent in Ireland. It is often used with the definite article – the craic – as in the expression "What's the craic?" Meaning "How are you?" or "What's happening?".

    Here in the the states I've only heard the term "crackey" in movies, but I got the message

    OK, I tugged on the thread and came up with this: "96 Quite Bitter Beings" by CKY

    Am I warm... or is it Deron Miller? (I like his version. Just E-A-D - I love it - I bought it.)

    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don't begin to know until you begin to try to do.
