I started my ukulele adventure about two months ago and I must say it’s been a blast. The ukulele is such a portable little instrument, so versatile for song writing and live performances, and it is indeed a blessing to behold. Why did I start playing the ukulele, you may ask? Funny story… I so happened to own a baritone ukulele bag made by Fusion Bags, a company I endorse, which was used to carry my Wing Bass, an instrument you’ve seen in many videos. Fusion posts a lot of ukulele related articles on their website and I would read them and think… hmmm this little instrument looks really cool and seeing as I already have a uke bag, why not put a uke in there. Haha! So that’s why I started my research into the ukulele I would want to play and that would give me the best sound. My search led me to Lanikai Ukuleles. I knew they would be at the NAMM show, so I waited to purchase one from them at NAMM and also that would mean I’d get to meet the people who make the ukes too. Long story short is we met, a mutual relationship developed and they offered me an endorsement deal! Definitely didn’t see that coming. So here we are. Enjoy the videos.
