    Default Hello from San Francisco

    Thank you for accepting me to this forum. I am a retired teacher living in San Francisco with a passion for the ukulele. I hope to be able to contribute and learn from your collective knowledge.
    I play tenor and in time I have collected a few instruments.
    Thank you again and see you in the forum.

    Welcome to UU, Hannared!

    You'll find many others who are passionate about ukes here. Look out for a couple of posts about virtual uke jams (still over Zoom), there will surely be one that is held in a time slot that fits you. You can also ask around for groups in SF to join when local infection and vaccination rates allow for physical meetings.

    Enjoy your tenors!

    Welcome! I hope you enjoy Ukulele Underground and find the forums helpful.

    If you're looking for local ukulele communities, please feel free to check out San Francisco Ukulele Rebellion, a group at meetup.com that, prior to the pandemic, met in the city of San Francisco twice a month to jam. We now meet on Zoom on Saturday evenings, but we're looking into restarting in-person meetups in an outdoor setting for those of us who are masked and vaccinated. Other local communities include the Peninsula Ukulele Group (PUG), an ukulele group in Oakland, and marinUkes in the North Bay.

    Welcome Hannared! Love the City by the Bay! I'm a displaced Californian, now a proud Texan. My wife had never seen California, so I took her on a three week car trip up the coast from San Diego to Humbolt, then back down on the inland side. She (and I) loved San Francisco! We had so much fun in your city. Now I sit around playing "San Francisco" daydreaming about the time I was 21 years old, and drove up from LA listening to that song over and over. The wife and I spent half a day riding your "On and Off" bus. Got off at Haight Ashbury, and wound up buying some great tie dye shirts! Wore one yesterday. Love and Peace, Bro!

    Hi Hennared, Welcome to the UU Forum.

    Congrats on your retirement. And thank you for your years of being a teacher.

    I also prefer playing tenors. They just fit me better than the other sizes.

    Glad you found us and hope you enjoy the Forum.
