 Just a note to invite you all to check out the Ukulele section of my website. http://www.tikiking.com/uke-stuff.html

See you There!

You're right! My apologies; you have them all! BTW, I really like the fact that you post messages about various groups which utilize ukuleles in their music. I always check out the links to those; I hope Waste of Aces comes to our area!

Hi Marian -- I do have links to Jim Beloff's site! Look at the picture of the Fluke on the right. Jim and Liz's site is the first one.

Actually, you have links to pretty much all my favorite sites except Jim Beloff's, I think. His is at flea-mkt-music.com, but you probably already know that. Aside from Ukulelia and Jim Beloff's site, I like the Ukulele Diner, the Ukulele Hall of Fame, the Ukulele Freedom Front (very quirky!) and Roy T. Cone's page (lots of cool ukes to drool over).

Hi Marian - thanks for the kind words about my article. What are the other ukulele websites you check out? I'd be interested in adding them to my list.

Wonderful article! I had the pleasure of attending one of Jim and Liz's workshops three weeks after buying a uke from Ebay on a whim. I was already obsessed with the little thing; I couldn't put it down & played it every day till my fingers hurt. After the workshop, though, it became a full-fledged addiction. There is something truly inspiring about seeing a room full of people of all ages and walks of life strumming along in harmony (mostly!) and grinning ear-to-ear while they do it. Now, I own a Fluke of my own and play it every day. I check out all the ukulele websites and check in with some of them (Ukelelia included) every day. What is with this thing, anyway? I don't get it, but I love it!!

Good question! They have a leisure section in the back, so I figured, what the hell. And the editor (Russ Mitchell), said he loved the idea. And I love Russ, too.

What a great piece! How the hell did you talk B2.0 into running it, though?
