A story.When Sarah and I visited your place, my wife was secretly planning to buy me a uke for our anniversary that week (trad. gift timber). So she checked out the brand of yours, and knew from ur blog that it cost ~$80.So we called up three of the biggest music stores in Brisbane - all sold out. Sarah also called up the music stores in Tamworth knowing we were headed there - all sold out.But following our GPS to Mt Tambourine, it took us a way we wouldn't have gone, up through Beenleigh, We were stopped at traffic lights, noticed a music store, pulled in, and they had one left - exactly what we wanted.So, sorry can't help you from sunny Sydney with the Uke crisis, but you should know that it isn't a figment of your imagination, there really is a national shortage.
Are you enjoying yours?I did know Sarah was after one.
Surely this means of of the children will have been given one for Christmas? I have a little purple Maholo that I played before I got serious and bought one that's tuned properly, which you can borrow or whatever.
I am enjoying it immensely. They were quite well-represented at Tamworth too, so they must be the 'in' thing atm.Also, the chord chart and tabs here have been fun.http://www.alligatorboogaloo.com/uke/tabs.html
