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.

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!
