Much to my and shock and surprise,my uke playing (which consisted of chord patterns- I need to memorize songs) not only got compliments,but requests to play more often during the show. I even had other sellers approaching the table and requesting that I play something...anything! And I got plenty of requests to bring the ukulele to every meet from now on.
Like I say,I really wasn't expecting this- I came with two other sellers.and we were watching each other's tables. At best,I was hoping my playing wouldn't bother anyone and I could pass the time pretty much un -noticed. Not so,as some of the requests were to play louder- so I could be heard by more people at the same time. I wound up in a great conversation with another seller who was attempting to repair a uke for a relative. While I'm not a super experienced luthier,I did give him some useful tips,and learned about a vintage made uke I believe was branded a "Californian" tho it was made in Australia. Hoping to see a pic of that.
So,yesterday's happenings has rekindled my interest in playing uke,and given me motivation to start memorizing tunes. You just never know how much shining your light means to others till you actually do it- even if it's unintentional!
