Yesterday, from southern Indiana, I mailed a banjo ukulele to my niece who lives in northern Indiana via regular USPS..I mailed it in the afternoon..TODAY it arrived.. Pretty fast, I'd say.. Anyway, there are so many ukulele players these days that maybe it is time for a Ukulele Hangout???
ezFolk used to be a great uke hangout (with a lot of other instruments as well), but Richard had to cut it back and now has a nice "learn ukulele" with videos and tabs as the major page on the ezFolk site. Check it out.
There have been other uke sites, including Ukulele Underground and the Ukulele Cosmos. I used to be pretty active on the Cosmos before I joined over here. I'm thinking of returning, but I don't know if its still going or not. I wonder if this latest ukulele wave hasn't already crested.
Definitely still popular. Before the covid-19 crisis, I was teaching uke classes through the university here. Beginner classes (6 people at a time) were always full with a waiting list. I taught either 2 beginner classes or a beginner and an intermediate class each semester.
I'm in Uke Central. I walk down the street and listen to a succession of uke players strumming from their porches. Chances are better than 50-50 there'll be a uke player playing & singing at a local restaurant or bar. I probably mentioned this in another post but my wife plays a mahog Martin uke her dad bought at the Honolulu Sears prior to the Pearl Harbor attack. I've got a koa uke bought new in Kona. Trouble is, I'd much rather be playing my fiddle.
