As the title says, I bought a (cheap, beginner's) ukulele, which just arrived. I played flute a long time ago, percussion in college, and lately keyboards, so this is my first stringed instrument. I'm hoping to record some primitive demos with it by the end of 50/90. I'm so excited!
It's also pissing me off. Did you know that with stringed instruments, if you don't tune it just right, it sounds absolutely awful? Who knew?!? It's hard enough getting used to a whole new method of music-making without that additional concern. What a pain in my butt. I never had this problem with my synths!
