    Default Hello from Germany

    Hello, I am a "relatively" new ukulele player, though I have been playing guitar, mandolin and banjo for quite some time. A while back my son wanted a ukulele and with that addition to the house hold I have been fully won over.

    I am pondering the idea of building a ukulele, and eager to improve my playing.

    I am an American, living in Germany these past 10 years, all the while becoming more and more drawn into all forms of acoustic music.

    Welcome to UU Scott!

    I am sure you will find a lot of interesting information on the forum and you have some of the best uke builders participating here.

    I'm also an expatriate in a German speaking country, from Belgium originally now living in Austria for 5 years, so we're kinda neighbors

    I am pretty fond of Austria, I have spent some time climbing and ski touring in various areas.
    I could imagine living in the Innsbruck area pretty easily ;-).

    Hello Jackie,
    I am in Langenfeld, between Cologne and Duesseldorf.

    The snow is welcome, for me. Beats the cold and rain any day :-)
    Where bouts are you?

    Hey Scott,
    we don’t live very far from each other. I am in Bergisch Gladbach near Cologne
    Right, better snow than rain and my husky loves it even more

    yes, indeed, practically neighbors.

    Walking a dog in the snow is MUCH nicer to deal with than in the rain. I had a husky mix, many years ago, who hated coming back in the house when there was snow out :-)

    You have to bribe Sam to out when it rains, but snow is no problem. Just as yours he would love to stay outside... but only until I speak the magic words (‚food is ready‘ )
