So a buddy of mine got a Ukulele for his birthday. Another friend got one for his kid as a graduation present. It's like when you buy a car that you hardly see anyone driving in your hometown, but as soon as you sign the papers you see the same car everywhere. Ukulele's are invading the Earth.

Yes, the same instrument that is synonymous with Hawaiian culture is slowly gaining popularity worldwide. Why shouldn't it? It's a relaxing sound, relatively easy to play...sort of, and highly portable. I say it's easy to play but then I watch a video by Ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro and I want to crawl in a shell.
