ABC Wednesday: Round 20 - U

This time around, U is for....

UKULELE


The ukulele originated in Hawaii, sometime in the 19th Century. It's related to the lute, and looks like a small guitar. It generally has four strings that can be either gut or nylon. And it's amazing how much music can be generated with just those four strings.

When we visited Honolulu last year, a uke seemed like the perfect souvenir for M to bring home with us. When he plays it, I feel like I'm right back on the beach at Waikiki!

Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
