Sorry to read earlier in this thread about the teacher who spent ten minutes setting up her instrument, and the other who walked away from someone who said he played standing up. Also the OFSTED report, but it was from The Sunday Express, wasn't it, so we can take that with it's usual pinch of prejudice?
Having now taken part in the 851 ukes World Record Attempt at London Uke Fest last year I feel privilidged to be part of such a great community ( even if my wife was trying to 'out' me as a guitar-player ). Also the UOGB for their great Prom at Albert Hall - that was an honour to have been in. What do a crowd of uke players do at the end of a performance ? They wave them in the air, that's what.
