Subject: RE: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Between one 'do' on an instrument and the next, there are 12 notes. Any instrument that has the 12 notes can play any music written in the Western world. Arguments against any instrument doing that are founded in habit, personal preference or snobbery.

Most of the time you don't even need all twelve notes.

Guest, you sound like part of the Great You-Shut-Up, the movement in our society which is always telling people to stop singing, to put their instruments away and just buy the recordings of the professionals. The main tactic of the Great You-Shut-Up is humiliating people.

'fuke'? What do you think we are, twelve-year-olds?
