Yes, it’s true. Today I bought a ukulele.
While I was in europe, I woke up one day and thought to myself “wouldn’t it be fun to learn to play the ukulele?” (Have you stopped laughing yet?)
So I kept thinking about it, and bothering Jude about it, and the idea just seemed better and better! I want to learn something new, something easy (relatively), and without much pressure or very high standards.
So today I called around town and discovered something quite unexpected: ukulele’s are making a huge comeback! They had tons of “Uke’s” at the stores I called. There are many groups for Uke players, even just in the Eugene/Springfield area. I had no idea!
I’m not really sure how I feel about this. I thought I was being so original and quirky. Who randomly decides to play the ukulele? Everyone, apparently.
In the end, I am the proud owner (yes, I am proud of it) of my very own Soprano Uke (bet you didn’t know they came in other sizes?). I’ve got a cute little ukulele chord book, and an adorable little Uke gigbag. The whole thing is so peachy, I’m giddy!
I’ve got a few songs I’ve already picked out to learn, and I’m very excited about it!
