Just call me Ukule-Lee
Yes, I broke down and bought a ukulele - a Samick UK70 concert model.
I went to my favorite guitar/instrument store - Stutzmans Guitar Center on Ridge Road - and looked at what they had available. There were some really cheap ones, slightly better ones, the UK70, and an even better (but more expensive)one, plus some used ones.
I opted for the UK70 because it was a step up from beginner, and will give me a taste of what it's like to play a ukulele. If I really like playing it, I'll likely later invest in a better one, possibly a tenor, with a pickup.
I've already serenaded my Good-Looking-One with a ukelele version of "Never Ending Song of Love."
