I like this, a spendid and thoughtful generosity.
Ukulleles are more guitars than anything else so this is the best forum to post it.

Very cool. I've been playing ukulele a lot the last few weeks, more than guitar.

I need to get another one!!!! I want a nice quality tenor with a built in pickup. A locallly owned music store south of here had an 8 string tenor with octave strings, a pickup and a cutaway.

I had to run away before it got my credit card!!!!!

There is just something about ukuleles. They just seem to attract positive vibes.

In general, short scale nylon stringed fretted instruments just radiate a "cheerful" demeanor.

My most cheerful sounding instrument currently is a requinto I found at Goodwill for $14.
It is a small variant of a classical guitar, widely used in Mexican music. Mine is tuned to G, many are tuned a whole step higher to A.

I strum it and just smile.

I have a couple of Ukes, a Kala acoustic and a solid bodied Risa which is a Strat look alike.

They are fun to play and the Risa is way lighter than my Gibson Les Paul
