I bought a ukulele from Amazon over the summer. I don’t think I had played one since I was 10. I purchased the larger baritone size. It makes a nice sound–not the high twang of Tiny Tim’s ukulele (you’ve got to old to get that reference!). I use it now in my music classroom to accompany my students when they sing. It’s better than hiding behind a piano and is much easier to hold than a guitar. The kids think it’s great and want me to give them lessons! But i’m too busy teaching 225 4th and 5th graders how to play soprano recorder. Hot Cross Buns never sounded so good!
