So, a very long time ago, I learned to play a few songs on the ukulele.

I've been wanting to relearn it again. Have something to take camping and sing songs with the grand children.

Any of you play the ukulele or guitar have any suggestions ? I'm just going to buy an entry level uke. Maybe
around the $100 mark to get started.

Thoughts ? Suggestions ?

I didn't know that anyone, other than Tiny Tim, actually did. smile

No. My daughter had to have one to take lessons in high school a few years ago....but she never learned how to play. Seems it as very popular with the high school students here.
