    That has to be the most unusual and original prediction of the year. For me, it's a bit serendipitous, too. Believe it or not I used to play (if you can call it that) the baritone Uke. I haven't had one in years (or ever read a reference to the instrument in a blog). But maybe now's the time for me to pick one up, get a new felt pick and strum my way into 2009.

    Happy New Year, Giovanni.

    Thanks, Martin! I had a ukulele as a kid. Never really learned to play it because I regarded it as a toy. I have learned the raw basics of a few stringed instruments, and I am now thinking I should buy myself a uke. Already pricing them online.

    Wishing I had thought about this earlier. I'd be spending the afternoon learning Auld Lang Syne. I'll focus instead on "Hail to the Chief."


    My friend studied the uke with Jake Shimabukuro when we were in high school. I finally met him at the Ukulele Festival in Yerba Buena Gardens last year and we talked about Hawaii. It was great.

    Amazing musician:

    Yes, ukeleles and zithers too maybe. Cheers, harropmike
