I Need Your Opinion On Ukuleles

  1. Ok so my friend and I are in the middle of a huge argument over ukuleles

    Do you think the ukulele is more of a toy than an instrument, or the other way around?

  7. yes its an instrument. looks like a toy but deff a real istrument
  8. i have a baritone uke it's fuckin awesome i can play iron man and smoke on the water and crazy train and i just started lol
  9. damn as much as I hate to say it I used to be into playing ukelele when I used to live in hawaii and i could play a few decent songs. its fun and what not but got really old. In hawaii they take ukelele almost as seriously as a Guitar.
  10. Ukuleles are awesome. I'm a deathmetal guitarist, but i love my ukulele lol :D
  11. Instrument.

    As much as they make beautiful music; they do have a slightly comical appearance... especially when played by a 500 lbs man.
  12. damn i want a ukulele..
    :) :smoking:
  13. I'm going to have to say an instrument as well.

    I'd love to be able to play one, Maybe I'll teach myself.

    Stringed instruments ftw.

    but i agree, they're an instrument. how could someone think they are a toy??

  15. Um, It's an instrument. There isn't really a legitimate argument against that.
