Tom Andersen Unpluged

Last night’s acoustic concert by Tom Andersen at the Artist Retreat Center (ARC) was excellent. An entertaining mixture of several genres and original songs. Tom is truly talented and the ARC’s casual home environment made for a wonderful evening. The snacks were really good too.

National Self Teacher

Awhile back a close friend gifted me a ukulele that was given to her as a child.  Along with the instrument she also received and copy of the National Self Teacher for to learn how to play the ukulele.  This instruction guide was first published in 1925.  The copy I have was was copyrighted in MCMXXXV.  I’ll post pictures of the ukulele at a later date.
