I've only lived here since 1984, so of course I'm a newcomer. I've had a banjo uke, since before that, and for a stretch I had a cheap but good baritone uke, and a tenor banjo, I built from spare parts I found at different music stores hundreds of mile apart, which I tuned like a baritone uke.... And I am about to put new strings on my bouzouk-ulele, which Is a guitar bouzouki, which I tune like a tenor guitar or baritone uke, not in fifths like an Irish Bouzouki. Recently, I heard a video ukulele reviewer recommend this forum, and then today I thought of a question related to my ancient off-brand banjo-uke, and the search engine took me to a discussion in the forums here, so I thought I should register. I am a strummer, not a picker and decades our of practice, compared to my days of best playing. So I could learn from any forum thread. My specialties are actually blues kazoo and stoneware bass, with some harmonic playing on the side.
