Since my son is starting to learn to play simple flutes (faster than I did!), I have gotten a ukulele to play rhythm along with him. But since most of the tunes we know are Irish or English from 200 years ago or so, very few are arranged for Ukulele.
So, thought I, how hard can it be? Turns out it's fairly hard. At least for someone with very little musical knowledge and who doesn't really know how to play a ukulele yet.
I am now about ankle deep in music theory, while trying to learn the basic chords, teach flute and still find time to make and play. Plus we just got 10 ducklings in the house, like things weren't already crazy.
