My last uke lesson went well, despite the fact that I slacked off for the past two weeks. Pops has made a new book of Shorty Long songs, so we played through a few songs. My new homework assignment is to make a list of 5 songs that I want to be my “set” and tape that list to the back of my uke. And then, presumably get really good at them.
The only annoying thing is that I still get severe pain in my left hand when playing certain songs. I blame my freakish double-jointed thumb.
And while we’re on the subject of ukes, my nephew Nicholas wants one for his birthday. So who am I to deny him?
