Today’s Chord and Ukulele Update: F

So, as some of you probably saw on my various social networks today, Pinkelele came in the mail—horray! Not so fast…

While she’s certainly pretty, and shiny, and pink…she’s also plastic, and difficult to tune (and even more difficult to keep in tune), and well…cheap. Maybe if I hadn’t been spoiled with Dan’s “real” ukulele I wouldn’t have known the difference, but when the 2 of us sat down to tune it tonight we couldn’t help but notice it sounds more like a toy than an instrument.

Ohhh…

So, I’m sad to report that I think Pinkelele might be heading back to the Amazon.com warehouse. As much as I’ve dreamed of owning a pink ukulele, I don’t think this is the one for me. Sigh and sad face.

I figure that maybe if this month goes well and I end up deciding to continue my ukulele studies, I’ll reward myself with one that costs more that $30. Good idea?

For now, you can find me practicing today’s chord—F —which is aptly named for today if you ask me…

I should add a crack to the middle since my little ukulele-loving heart is broken...
