Introducing myself to this group, sharing my museum with your museum! Would love to come see yours in-person someday. Peace & Love!

The ukulele is an instrument that has been present since the beginning of the Blues ...
Commonly Ukuleles come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, baritone.
There are also many Ukuleles made of CIGAR BOX and CANS or TINS ... Join, invite and add friends ...

Hello All,

I found this site and had my interest sparked in CBGs by the thread on Fark.com.  Big thanks to whoever it was who submitted the info about the CBG Museum.  Cool stuff!
