I picked up my uke a couple days ago, strummed, and found it was seriously out of tune. When I tried to tune it up, it wouldn’t hold. Uh oh.
Fortunately R is pretty well-versed in the maintenance of stringed instruments and thinks he can probably fix it up. Fingers crossed, because I’d really like to get back to playing!
So much for getting anything constructive done ;) I’ve already learned a handful of chords and tried to play a couple of songs. FUN!
Until I can justify the purchase of a ukulele. Which will be difficult, considering my track record with musical instruments. (My guitar is currently a lovely decoration in my living room, but rarely gets any play time. Poor thing.)
Any recommendations from those who already own a uke? I’m looking for a standard in the $50-80 range, I think. It doesn’t need to be super fancy (obviously not for that price) but I’d like it to have decent sound and hold a tune.
