      I enjoy Country and Western music, and was just looking for old "Grand Ole Opry" on YouTube, and for any of you Brits who like C+W also, you might find this British YouTube ad interesting,

      My first instrument....think I was 8. Mom and Dad bought me a plastic one...told me I had to prove I was really going to learn it before I got wood. Well, less than a year later, under the Christmas tree was a brand new BARITONE uke, closer to a guitar size. First guitar around 12 and been playing it ever since. The ukelele is VERY easy...chords are simple and you don't have so much trouble manipulating your fingers to reach them. Get a good book and just learn a few simple songs with only two or three chords each. Play and sing them a lot so you get used to changing chords rapidly. Then, you will be off. Friends of mine are Hawaiian and used to live in the States. Kam was a fire and knife dancer, and Lale taught hula dancing and had a band. She STILL plays the uke in the band some. They are back in the islands now. Kam is too old for the fire and knife dances....they are really very dangerous. I remember one performance where he cut himself badly but finished it on stage without even dropping the knife.....boy, was he a mess when he came backstage!
      Lale still teaches and performs. Heh, Sue, you may be famous one day.....just don't take the Tiny Tim route, LOL, KPKEITH You should be able to play it the very first day.

      It's Chester who is attempting the Uke, but if I get famous, I guess she would be also.

      Heaven forbid. Keith, shame on you. Sue would just DIE of embarrassment, LOL................Jim, try more for the Ken Curtis songs. Actually Duke DID really sing a song or two in later years...one was in True Grit or Rooster...that is an idea. Just don't get drunk to sing it, LOL! KPKEITH
