About Ukulefty

I’m just a regular guy, trying to get the most out of this one life!

My hometown in Brisbane (Australia) but I’m currently living on the outskirts of that bustling, bubbling city that is London, England! I mostly moved here for the experience and the opportunity for travel. Coming from a massive place like Australia, it’s still a novelty for me that in a couple of hours drive I can be in a different country!

I’ve never been very musical, but not very long ago on an impulse I decided to buy myself a ukulele. My thought process what pretty much “yeah, that looks like fun; four strings; how hard can it possibly be?”

The rest –Β they say – is history…

This blog is just a collection of random happenings and thoughts that pass me by on my journey through life. Mostly ukulele related, but others just things I find interesting or have the urge to blog about. Thanks for checking out my page and I hope you found something to interest you somewhere deep in my blogspace.

  2. Hi, ukelefty,

    It’s not murdering the ukulele if the music moves your soul, no matter how it sounds to anyone else.

    I’m looking forward to being able to coax something close to music out of mine. πŸ™‚

  3. Happy to hear that you are from Brisbane. I live just a tad to the south. Ian Whitcomb is a lefty uke player too (you might like to google him if you haven’t yet learned of Ian and his ways with a uke).

  4. Very cool. I wasted way too much time today on your blog. haha, keep it up! Aloha~

    Hi Lefty, we met last night….Belle Vue…I was sat next to you.( to your right) Just found you tonight whilst checking out Uke sites…I will be at the next Marlow meet up..see you then. Strum safe !

    • Belle Vue was great, top group you got going there. I picked up some cool little tricks and tips. Pity it’s only once a month! Will see you at the Marlow one on Monday.

    Martin is a very talented guy, I think the group would grow rapidly if he made it twice a month. See you Monday.

    • Derek - MUGGER

      I’d love a fortnightly session too. Martin is a really great mentor and fun to boot! Still practising the jazz turnarounds …….

  10. Think I’ve nailed the C turnaround but unfortunately won’t be able to demonstrate tomorrow as I will be dealing with some sad stuff during the afternoon and celebrating a life in the evening…
