Thread Name: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Subject: RE: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
I remember when people who played early music on instruments appropriate to the period were regarded with the same sort of
amused disdain that uke players get now.
As I think of it, most of the truly interesting developments in music tended to be regarded with disdain by somebody. And a lot of developments that weren't very interesting, as well.
It seems to me that no matter what sort of music you play or listen to,
there is someone, somewhere, who is disdainful of it. The only response I can think of is to say, "We're going to play what we want,
like it or not" and to carry on.
