I haven’t given much space here to praise of the ukulele, though it’s made an appearance a couple of times. It’s time to give it a moment on stage. It’s time to say, you really cannot feel too bad, no matter how far Down the Dow goes, how deep the winter, how dark the dawn, if you can make some music. And the little ukulele is humble enough to go with you anywhere, sweet enough to please you even if you’re not so great at it, capable enough that if you want it to, it can make lots and lots of music. You just cannot hold a ukulele and feel glum anymore.
I’m not the only one who thinks so. (Click any of these images to make them bigger.)
Some uke players are stylish:
Some are formal:
Some are shy:
Some are bold:
Some uke players start young:
Some keep on playing til they’re old:
From time to time a person just has to kick on back and feel good.
