Theresa, that is awesome! There is nothing so much fun as making music, and you don't have to be good at it to have a blast!

Well, I picked up another soprano banjo ukulele a couple of weeks ago. It's the open backed one next to my wife's 1925 model. They both appear to be identical except for the back and probably made by Slingerland as far as I can tell. The other day I found a $.50 wooden salad plate in a reuse store and made a 1895 style back. Did a little wood burning and a bit of tinting on it and enhanced the sound and looks.

That sounds like so much fun around a campfire.

If you are looking for uke books, go to Jim Beloff's sight. He has 2 books with 365 songs to learn. I bought a fluke and a couple of books from there and have been having fun when time permits. His ukes are more expensive, but have the plastic(lol) backs like the ovation guitars. Nice sound on the uke and stays in tune. Since you already have a uke, this sight also has dvd's to learn how to play.

Check out the gourd tenor Banjolele I just finished. It's setting in just fine.

Look through the thread "a cut above" and see the other folk instruments that I have made. Most are made from broken and discarded parts of old guitars and found items. The hourglass dulcimer for instance came from the roadside spring cleanup. A discarded maple bed headboard, an old redwood fence board and a broken guitar. Fun stuff!
