    I know exactly what you mean. Maybe Andrew and Stan are right. That's why I'm saving for a koaloha concert (after I get my Mainland tenor). See, I'm worse than you! ; )

    Sold my bari, and after owning 5 ukes I'm now back to just owning a Dolphin. Happier than ever, and strumming and picking like a very very very happy madman.

    at my level there's always something better out there. I just got my 3rd, a Kala solid top acacia and am already drooling over a Martin C1k that's set to arrive at the local store any day...if it's impressive I probably won't be able to resist, even though I have no business spending that amount on a uke at my skill level, which is good enough to entertain myself and annoy other people!

    Wow. Eugene Ukulele "self deprecation and loathing" Wow!

    I guess it's the never-ending dissatisfaction that makes musicians truly great, like Eugene Ukulele. I watch his videos and can't imagine him wanting to get better. Dissatisfaction's sort of a secret weapon.

    Now constantly striving for a better instrument, strings, tuner, case, music stand,... is a problem. (the industry's secret weapon)

    If my wife can have nine cats, why can't I have nine ukuleles?
    Why me?

    How about a new wife or maybe a new pit bull? (sorry I really, really hate cats).

    Not once have I had a uke puke on the floor. I would think 2 ukes for every cat would be reasonable.

    In addition to the making music aspect of playing the uke, there's also, like in many pursuits, the hobby aspect. Seeking the best strings, checking out and yearning for the new models, participating in forums are all part of the enjoyment for many. Have fun with it!

    Yeah, satisfaction comes with time. You don't know enough yet in the beginning. Once you figure some things out then contentment and satisfaction come. I've got a few ukes, I've got one that gets 98% of my playing time.

    I'm also a guitar player. A few years ago I owned 40+ guitars, 20+ amps, 150 or so effect pedals. I now own 12 guitars, 2 amps and about 12 effects. Much more satisfied
