My daughter played a ukulele in a production of "Radio Gals" back when she was a theater arts student at Texas Women's University. For her birthday this year, she asked me to get her a decent uke, because she wanted to start playing again.
I meant to get around to it . . . but forgot.
Then Sean at Grapevine Guitar Works tells me he is carrying Kala Brand Ukuleles. He helped me get a nice mahogany tenor uke for my daughter.
By the way, did I share that she wants to go with me, as her schedule allows, to sing at hospitals and nursing homes??? Brings a tear to my eye. I am happy beyond belief . . .
Anyway, Sean also had a nice spruce top baritone uke. Now, for those who didn't know, and I am one who didn't know, a baritone uke is usually tuned like the bottom four strings of a guitar. D-G-B-E. Which means . . . I am playing the thing like crazy. It's just like playing my old tenor banjo.
I had recently purchased a Little Martin travel guitar with some mad money I was saving. I wanted to, and have used it to sing in nursing homes. However, this baritone uke is just as loud, and a lot more lighter and easier to carry around as a travel instrument.
So . . . another journey started. More to report soon.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
