    Default New UU member. Cheers from Oregon!

    Hi, my name is Sean. I'm really looking forward to becoming a part of the community here. A little about myself:

    My wife bought me a uke in Hawaii on our first anniversary. I didn't touch it in years! Now I'm hooked! I stumbled on a ukulele tutorial by "Ukulele Mike" on Youtube and from then on I couldn't let a day go by without playing. Shortly thereafter I became inspired by Todd Baio, another Youtube find. There's no going back now. Though still a novice (playing for about eight months now) I really feel I've finally found my musical voice in the ukulele.

    Hey Sean, welcome from another Oregonian! Seems like there are quite a few Pacific Northwesterners around here. Whereabouts in Oregon are you from? And what's your uke?

    Hey Josh. From your name I must assume you're from Portland. I am too. I've been here for two years now and have found a great ukulele community here. I've been to a PUA get together as well as some of the ukulele classes at Artichoke Music. I've also gone to some of the Portland Casual Jams sessions. I'm still a novice on the uke but I play a little everyday. I have a soprano made by Mahalo. Can't wait to get a good tenor!

    Thanks everybody! Can't wait to really get involved. It is time to start buying more ukuleles! I'd love to get a nice tenor one of these days. Any other Portland, OR area UU members ever want to get together and play I'm up for it!
