Thread Name: 10K for a Uke??!!
Subject: RE: 10K for a Uke??!!
Hey, Spaw, I used to have that 'just a uke' attitude. Then one vacation day I wandered into a backroad bar on Kauai. The regulars gave me the 'Yuck, Tourist' look, ignored me, and proceeded to play Hawaiian music--real Hawaiian music with male falsetto, part singing, and complex instrumentation. Ukulele like I'd never heard it before or since. It was to die for. I've never been able to sneer at the uke since.
