I think we have Aldis, and Save-A-Lot and Whole Foods, but not Food Lion or Martins.

I think down the road Martins (which is a Giant company) and Food Lion may merge. We'll see.

Michelle,

I follow the Packers but I've never worn one of those foam things on my head! It's interesting that you play ukulele. It's become a popular instrument with music students right now.

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

Michelle,

Maybe you can help me with this. I have a young student who keeps telling me he has an electric ukulele. Is there such a thing? Also, what type of music do you prefer to play?

I sure can.
Yes, there are ukuleles that are pre-amped to be played just like an electric guitar. Taylor Swift performs with one.

I love instrumental, I can sing a bit, but I really enjoy just playing around with the notes and strumming and I would love to learn what is called Clawhammer, a lot of picking and whatnot. I have never played an instrument in my life, I don't know how to read music, but I picked up the uke and was playing it an hour later. I think it's a wonderful instrument for kids, and it's economical, even the amped ones. Let's see the strings going down are

(G C E A) I believe these follow piano notes. Don't quote me!!!!!

When they are in tune you can sing "My Dog Has Fleas"!

Oops, I should tell you there is a fourth bigger ukulele with four strings called a Baritone. That is what Beatles played on at times when the came to America. I think it's tuned to the four lowest strings of the guitar.

I look for Pop Music as well and I can do a great "Rainbow Connection"!!!!!
I also write my own silly songs.

Thanks, Michelle! Yes, I've heard that you can pick up the uke and in a very short time be able to play a song (and have it be recognizable!). "The Rainbow Connection" is a song I've always liked, whether it's played on the piano or a string instrument. Have a great night.
