Subject: RE: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
That's telling 'em, Stim.

I remember an early music concert I attended after a workshop in North Carolina. Everybody had early instruments, and the faculty was very learned. At the final concert, a faculty member played a tune from the 11th Century on a plastic toy, the kind that you blow into, and it has a little keyboard on the side.

It sounded right, and we all listened respectfully.
