Hvem ville tro mig hvis jeg sagde
der er en vej ud af alting men sjældent en tilbage
vi lever i nuet i templer af glas på kredit
og spejler os halvt ihjel vederlagsfrit
Alle har en drøm
om engang at bli’ fri
af lasterne der lænker os til
selvbedrag og natteroderi
Ingen jeg kender ka’ sige mig hva’ vej jeg skal gå
de har alle sammen travlt med at indse dagen derpå
de venter og håber og tror
ligesom jeg på i morgen, det magiske ord
for nuet i sig selv har ingen anden mening end farvel
I have recently bought some cheap ukuleles for Pavle and Sara. They are actually not so bad, but they’re not exactly brilliant either. They’re just good enough for playing – in the broadest sense of the word – when you’re 4 years old and want to learn to handle an instrument.
I, however, cannot find peace with an instrument that only almost is in tune. I need something more. Having a Martin J-40 has spoiled my ears and my fingers too much to be satisfied with only almost an instrument. Now I have found something, I think I’ll like: The Martin S-O Uke! I have searched for testimonials on YouTube, and the message is quite clear: Martin is always a good choice!
I did hear something about Pono Ukuleles too! Lanikai was mentioned. However, I am biased! I have already made the purchase of my life in terms of 6-string indulgence – my Martin J-40.
I have already asked my favorite guitar pusher, Akustikken in Aarhus, Denmark, to fix something for me… We’ll see how it goes.
Below I’ve added a collection of videos featuring the ukulele:
