    I just started playin' about a month ago so that would be about mid December 2008. But I've been playing guitar and other stringed instruments for almost 50 years (what!!! that can't be right--let's see 62 now and started playin' guitar at 13--yea, don't seem like that long though). Anyway I love the ukulele and especially I love playing' the Hapa Haole songs.

    We have done so much with so little for so long, they expect us to do everything with nothing forever.

    25 years.

    I started on a stand up in the JHS orchestra.

    From there I took piano lessons and taught myself guitar. Of course down the road I taught myself to play uke.

    I used to consider bass to be my primary instrument with guitar and piano coming in tied at second.

    Now I consider uke to be my primary instrument just because I can't stop playing it. I always have one out calling to me for attention.

    Wait..there it goes now.

    What about bass? This is the bass player section of the ukulele board

    Literally one week. I got my bass last week. I have come to believe that slapping da bass, as I saw in the movie "I love you man" is impossible for mortals like myself. But I can still play regular bass...or will continue to keep trying to learn!

    I played guitar for maybe two years, and have played ukulele for around six months. The timer for bass hasn't started for me yet. I'll be saving up for a bass uke (aiming for a Kala Ubass) after I buy my Mainland mahogany concert.

    I will start, though.

    I've been playing upright for almost 8 years now and bass guitar for 6 months.
    Music is found in the spaces between the notes- in the silence between the chords. Get your spaces right, and you've got it. Albert Greenfield
