Angela - I picked up the ukulele after reading Jerry Spinelli's book, Stargirl. There was a character who played the ukulele.
Seriously, I was fascinated with the character and bought a purple soprano uke for $24.99 on Amazon an hour after I finished reading. I have never looked back. Later I bought a Luna concert. I love my concert, but would really like to someday have a tenor uke. smile
