Labor Day,and Holiday Pluckin!

      Holy's September already! It feels like 2 weeks ago I was watching the Rose Parade,and here we are. Football season is upon us,and Halloween is coming. It;s been a hot & humid August,and I can't wait for the cooler Fall weather to be upon us.
        I have re-activated the Hep-Kittens Baritone Ukulele Blog and moved it to a nicer location. You can find it here I'm considering moving this one as well. The other site is most impressive and this one has gotten messy. Soprano playing wise I've been doing tab arrangements of "Avalon" "China Boy" "Chinatown my Chinatown" among others in addition to learning "The Addams Family Theme". I'm playing my Daniel Ho concert model which I adore.
       There is a new model of soprano uke coming,which I have preordered to check out made by a company not previously known for uke making. I won't be able to get a hold of one till October. It will be hot pink,and it's by a company well known for making instruments for women & girls. Comes with a gig bag & book. It will be in my store for ordering once they're made available (if I deem it good enough quality to stock it that is) so stay tuned.

Sweet Sherrie Yvonne's Ukulele Paradise-My New Teaching Page!

I love Weebly as it's so easy to get a site going there! I started off this year by offering lessons in banjo & mandolin,thinking I'd have a pile of students by now,but this was not the case. To date,I have 1 mandolin student. So,I started looking over the clues given me by the Universe to see where my destiny lies. Last Xmas,I got a reso uke. This year,early,I was gifted 2 fixer upper banjo ukes. My most popular blog? This one. OK-I'm a little dense. (No comments from the peanut gallery) So I no longer offer banjo lessons,I do still take mandolin students,in addition to classical guitar students,however my main focus in teaching is now ukulele. (Including baritone!) 
    I feel like a weight has been lifted off me now that I decided to do this. If you'd care to visit the site & share it with your uke friends,click Sweet Sherrie Yvonne's Ukulele Paradise and have a look around. I adopted a surfy theme,wanting to stay true to my Native Californian beach roots.
