Friday Links

More (re)entrants into world of ukulele blogging:

- Ukulele Review does what it says on the tin with instruments, accessories, CDs, DVDs and books.

- Ukulele Ghetto is the diary of a UAS ‘sufferer’.

pfftProbably the best uke article I’ve ever seen in the press in the San Francisco Chronicle. It even introduced me to High Hopes who I wasn’t familiar with and am very glad to find out about.

The 4th Peg opens a ukulele tab section with some Xmas treats.

Posters for uke gigs are always that little bit more stylish.

    I love Friday Links!

    That was a great article from the San Fransisco Chronicle.

    And, I enjoyed the Christmas treats. “Christmas Time is Here” just became my newest project.

    Thanks so much, Woodshed!

    I agree about the article in the San Francisco Chronicle. It’s cool to hear about stuff like that…

    And if I may use this space? I hope you don’t mind but…
    I’m looking to buy an electric uke!
    I wish to play with some friends of mine and the only way would be to go electric!
    However…my budget is reallllly tight. The most I could afford is probably $200!
    I know it’s tough but if anybody knows of such an instrument I will be extremely happy! Thanks!

    Jupiter Creek make some reasonably priced and good looking electric ukes. They often turn up on eBay. There’s one in your price range at the moment.

    I haven’t played one myself, but I’ve heard good things.

    GASP!
    It’s…perfect! Exactly what I was looking for!
    Oh thank you, wonderful deity of ukes!

Got something to say?
