My parents thought I was a little nuts when I told them all I wanted for Christmas was a new ukulele. I had fun learning on my $60 soprano uke, but was ready to upgrade to something a little more sturdy — and more importantly, a uke I could plug in to a sound system for gigs.
I’m all grown up, but I still love a good Christmas surprise. After we had opened almost all of our presents, my dad announced that he had forgotten one in the car. When he carried in a giant wrapped box, I was a little more than excited…sure enough, it turned out to be the beauty I’m so happily pictured with above!
The Cordoba Tenor Ukulele has a solid mahogany top, mahogany sides and back, an electronic pick-up, and above all, a beautiful sound that I can’t get enough of. It’s such a fun instrument to play that I’m already predicting most of my new songs and videos will feature the uke.
Ever since becoming a music therapy student back in 2004, my Christmas list has included instruments and other tools of the trade. I doubt that will change anytime soon :) Did you unwrap any new instruments or other music therapy supplies this Christmas?
I can’t wait to hear it!
Soon and very soon! Hope you’re having fun with that iPad…more app recommendations are on the way :)
Very Nice!!! It’s almost as pretty as you are ;)
Joe, you are too sweet! I haven’t forgotten about you — let’s set a date for you to make a visit at the beginning of the new year!
I got a brand new djembe —
Sure beats the Craigs List drums I’ve been using with clients!
Oooh, nice! Enjoy!
