Ukulele Underground!

About a year ago, I posted some ukulele links.  Well, that list of links has turned into just one link:


 That's http://ukuleleunderground.com.

I'm a sustaining engineer and not particularly good at marketing, but this website has everything you ever need for learning to play the ukulele or just enjoying ukulele music.  There's tutorials on the front page, you can buy a CD of original ukulele music,  and the best part are the pointers in the forum to all the cool ukulele videos on youtube and to some really interesting discussions. See if you can find which user is me...

The folks who created the website are on tour in California this week.  They spent three days in San Francisco, CA playing at Mike DeSilva's in Berkeley on Friday night and then at the Hukilau in SF on Sunday night.  I also got to jam with them until the wee hours of the morning on Saturday night.  They will be playing in San Diego, California on July 21, 22, and 23. (See the website for the exact place and times.)

If you like the ukulele, you'll love ukuleleunderground.com even more!

If there are any ukulele players at Sun, please contact me and we can get together to jam sometime!

We \*really\* need to catch up.

I am currently performing music live into second life with guitar and have just added a nice Mahalo Uke that has a pickup (and of all horrors a kazoo) into my repertoire, looking at doing stuff you would not expect, like John Lennon's Stand by Me and The San Francisco Bay Blues.

I have some online friends who also do such interesting stuff as The Vatican Rag and a Second Life version of Monty Python's "The Universe Song" - "The Metaverse Song".

I'm having a lot of fun with my Uke.

Alan,
I have not tried second life lately (after it was too slow on my older PPC iMac), but I know that there is a wide variety of music for the ukulele and hundreds of youtube videos. Search for "ukuleleunderground" or "ukulelereview" for 200 or so videos and follow the links from there.

UU rocks!

Wish I could catch some of the UU dude's CA tour, but I'm stuck up in her the Pacific Northwet and it's not going to happen.

Maybe I can arrange a tour too.

Y'think?
