Two years ago, the convention (mentioned in the previous post) was held in Nashville, TN. When I finished my sessions I went downtown to find a music store. Found just one — Gruhn’s Guitars beside the Ryman Auditorium. Gruhn’s was filled with gems — both new and old ukuleles.
Took this picture, which, at high resolution is now my desktop background. I held this ukulele, but was afraid I’d drop it. I put it back on the black velvet and took its picture.
People who visit my office ask about the expensive guitar on my computer screen. I acquaint them with the concept of a ukulele. Inevitably they comment — something so small with such a big price tag.
