Check out my new analog audio device

If you read the thread that I posted a few days ago about non-gadget hobbies, you might remember that I mentioned wanting to buy a ukulele. Well, I ordered one over the weekend from an eBay shop called Ukulele4U and it arrived today. It’s a beauty and I thought I would share some pics with all of you…

The brand is Pono and it a concert sized ukulele made of Koa wood. Pretty huh? Now I just have to learn how to play the thing! :o)

Update: Before going to bed last night, I made a short video
of me plunking out my first song on the uke. It’s not very good, but considering the fact that I’ve not picked up a stringed instrument in years, I don’t think I did all that bad ;o) Bonus points to those of you that can figure out the name of the song.

Disregard my comment at the end where I say “Now it’s your turn…”. That was directed at Rob as I made the video for him. He’s starting to learn guitar :o)

    Congradulations Julie…you have just made yourself a new “Amazing Grace” ringtone for your iPhone 🙂

    I think I’ll practice it a lot more before I do that! ;o) But yes, you named the tune correctly!!

    Great job! I was expecting just some “Tiptoe thru the Tulips” strumming or something.

    I haven’t tried any of the strumming type of songs yet. I like fingerstyle best…
