Thread Name: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Subject: RE: Are ukelele's a real instrument
I've always felt that when it comes to a music session in a pub or whereever, you are either in (with an instrument) or out (just a bystander who may listen to the music if they wish). I don't want to lug a big guitar around with me and have to find space for the case, so I've got myself a uke. I can sit in on a session if I want; I can be as quiet or as noisy as I feel fits; I don't take up too much space or get in other people's way; and if the other "musicians" don't like it, tough, 'cause they should be more accommodating and less elitist.
Did that end as a bit of a rant, sorry didn't mean to. But at the end of the day if you want to make music with other like minded people, I say, go for it.
