You know, my cheap little ukulele doesn't sound too bad even when played with the one on the CD, which is presumably a good one.
A lot of the guitar skills are transferable. I wouldn't be this good if I was starting from scratch, but I need to practice a lot more before I venture to play where anyone else can hear me!
Random thought... If coneycat reckons that an Eee is a Shetland laptop, then a ukulele is a Shetland guitar -- and I'm downsizing everything. :)
