I am a  old guy trying to get to grips with the three string, my problem in the past is to learn ukulele and three srtring.In some regeons in the  UK there seems to be a hot bed of experianced players but in my area I don't know of one ,play what I think is blues, I hear of guys saying they are just noodlinge,to make this work so it sounds li,e the blues what area of the finger board shouldI be concentrated on. I am hoping to attend the Cambridge gig hoping to get some expeariance from experianced player , any help would be apreciated Regards Mal (HULL)

Hullo Mal.The typical Blues notes are frets 3,5,7,10 and 12 .Repeat up the neck,if you wish.There are lots of tutorials on YouTube,especially helpful is Shane Speale. The Cambridge gig is a good one.....Have fun...
