    Cool New to the UU - Hello All!

    Hey Everyone!

    I'm new to the community here. I started playing the uke about 6 months ago. I currently own 2 ukes and I look forward to adding more to the collection. Although I'm new to the uke, I've been playing the guitar for the last 16 years.

    Current Ukes:
    • Kala KA-ASLAT (my first uke, and my personal favorite)
    • Epihone Les Paul Acoustic/Electric (bought this one due to my love of Les Pauls and not so much for it's uke qualities, but it's still fun)

    So what got me into the Uke? I hate to say it, but it was Eddie Vedder. After he put out 'Ukulele Songs' in June, I just had to get one. I'm an avid Pearl Jam fan so naturally Eddie brought visibility to this instrument that I may have otherwise dismissed.

    So I bought the Kala and I've been hooked since. I've been writing more of my own tunes than I have been playing others music. I absolutely love my Ukes and can't wait to add more to the collection.

    Anyways. Just wanted to introduce myself and say Hello. Look forward to joining in on the fun.

    Welcome, Brian.
    And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
    And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
    Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
    As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.

    Hi Brian and Welcome! I too am a guitar player (over 40 years!) and just recently discovered the joy of the ululele! So much fun! I haven't heard Eddies' uke CD yet but am looking forward to checking it out. I am a Pearl Jam fan too. Good to hear you are writing songs too. That is also my passion!
