I didn't understand the banjo jokes either. Now I'm thinking bag pipes.

Really, it's all good when you get to make music with anyone else playing anything else...

Now, bag pipes are maybe an exception to that rule - well, they are really weapons of war, aren't they - you more wield them than play them...

Actually, a bagpiper friend - an Australian bagpiper, yet - piped my wife and I into the church on our wedding day, then amazed the small community we'd just moved into by marching up and down our deck overlooking the harbour, in full kilt and regalia, playing the pipes periodically throughout the reception...quite the May 24th...

Don't worry about lessons, just start playing. If you want a song to play look up tabs for Frere Jacques (Are You Sleeping). Just keep strumming. The more you strum the easier it'll be.

Funny Story

Last month we were camped at Las Vegas Bay in the Lake Mead Recreation Area. I was sitting out side playing my Mountain Dulcimer when part way through playing Nut Factory Shuffle I heard what sounded like a bird singing with my playing. Anne was in a better position (not so close the dulcimer) to hear than I. My hearing wasn't so bad after all, that silly Grackle was singing along and keeping in time and tune. I wish I could have gotten a recording.

That's a great story!

Hey I'm a uke player too. I realize this is an old discussion, but I've just joined and am happy to hear that RVs & ukes are made for each other. Maybe because they're so small? If so, my harmonicas should feel right at home too.

I have made little ukulele hammocks mounted above the side windows on our Trillium Outback to keep them safe and out of the way when we are not strumming.

But how about a banjo ukelele? Mine is a '30s vintage Slingerland with the original skin head and a fancy birdseye maple body.
