This is my first post, ever, on a blog. So here we go……
Ukeeku: Pronounced oo – key – ku: A made up word, just uke and uke backwards smashed together, like it is reflecting.
I started this blog for many reasons, one is that I see a hole in the ukulele community that I think I can fill. The main problem is that many sites review ukuleles, but they are not ones that are really available to the masses. I think that stinks! I want to read about things that I can actually afford, or how to stretch my ukulele dollar. I don’t know about you but I am limited to how much I can spend at any given time on such things as ukuleles. If I get my hands an a nice ukulele I will review it, but that will not be my main goal. Honestly many ukes under $100 are really nice with some work.
So here is the plan:
- To start I will review my current ukuleles (Oscar Schmidt, Risa, Bushman, Grizzly, Papas Boxes to name a few)
- Talk about strings (review strings and make comparison charts)
- Discuss modding and adjusting ukuleles
- review ukulele related items such as tuners, books, classes.
More to come as I work on this site. if all goes well I am hoping to move off of the wordpress server
