    Great website. Happy birthday, but think you made a typo in the fourth word of the opening sentence! Keep up the excellent work.

    Ukehunt is the most useful, entertaining and certainly the most intelligent uke site around. You’re feeding the habits of a lot of weird junkies around the world. Thanks a zillion.

    Hello! I was wondering if you would mind doing a tab for AJR’s Growing Old on Bleeker Street? I can’t seem to find the chords anywhere and I would really appreciate it! I love this blog and regularly visit (although I rarely comment, I am a shy armadillo) so keep up the good work! Thanks and have a nice day!

Got something to say?
