Months ago I wrote about my decision to ditch the too-hard-to-play mandolin and instead take up the ukulele. Well, some months down the line I’m delighted to report that I’m now strumming along to some of my favourite bands. I’ve just put down the uke after playing along to Guyamas Sonora, a wonderful track on the second album by Beirut, The Flying Club Cup.
Having just watched this video, perhaps I’ll return to the mandolin some time. I’ve also confirmed some of my previous discoveries and theories about the web – principally, that if you’ve an interest, there’s plenty of others out there happy to share in just about every dimension of it. One of my recent finds is the wonderful blog Ukulele Hunt.
