It’s been only a little over year since I picked up a ukulele on a whim at the music store my sister works at in Madison, Wisconsin. They were having a summer tent sale and she was like, “come on over!”
I was dropping my nephew off with her after he’d spent the night at our house anyway, and this was a nice meet up place. I thought since I was there, I’d check out what they had.
I wasn’t really planning on buying anything, until I walked inside and saw ukuleles of all sorts of colors! I knew right then I just had to get one.
I chose my favorite color yellow, of course.

I’d been practicing a little before that on an old ukulele my Dad had given me to borrow. But I’d been considering getting one for a while, and so I guess it was just kinda meant to be.
A couple months later I released a song I wrote called “Back in the Saddle.” About a year after its first release last summer, I recently decided to do a ukulele version of this song and record it. (pictured below)

It’s been fun re-learning how to play previous songs I’ve written now on the ukulele, and write some new ones on it too.
