Hi, I'm FriendlyFred and running this blog. I play 'em all from soprano to baritone, acoustic and electric. Yes, big hands can handle small instruments. Enjoy strumming around and have a good day !
The New York Ukulele School
" Start spreading the news ... " Ok New York City isn't Big Island. But it seems to be a good place for uke players. You get an impression of the vivid ukulele scene if you click here. Just recently I got in contact with Mark Michaels who runs the New York Ukulele School. The logo on his homepage looks like a promotional poster for a musical from the 70's. But you can also see a tattooed beauty with a uke. To get an impression of Mark, please take a look at the following video. He accompanies one of his students. I have no idea why he runs around during the performance, but you get an impression of his skills at 0:54 when he plays a cool bluesy solo. You find more videos of his students on his Youtube channel. Mark offers individual and group lessons. If you're outside New York you can get ukulele lessons via Skype too. For terms and conditions please visit the New York Ukulele School homepage. FriendlyFred
