I just joined this morning and am very excited! I have been playing the ukulele since mid October. I. Am. Hooked. Love it! I can play some chords and songs but really want to learn all about this instrument. I know music and used to play the clarinet and most recently the piano but can’t sing. I’m really looking forward to learning melody chords. I’m past the super-sore fingertip stage (I think and hope:) and am ready to go!
