Topic: New Uke Day

Here's my 11-week-old Grandson (Abel) with his first ukele, presented to him by his Grampie (me) this past weekend. He's obviously delighted with it, but will need some major motor skill development before he'll be playing. He sat mesmerized when Grampie played guitar for him, and especially liked faster picked songs like "Yankee Doodle" and "Turkey in the Straw". When I started to whistle along, he started to grin ... a true musician in the making!

That picture should be framed and the centerpiece in some music shop over the UKES.

Thanks for starting my day in a beautifully inspiring way !

Re: New Uke Day

That is a gorgeous baby. You might have to wait just a little while for the for him to start playing. I agree with the photo to be in a music shop and that was a good idea. I
