Ukulele: Bluegrass and Country.
Living in the Heartland of the United States a lot of local festivals and jam sessions are country and bluegrass oriented. I am feeling that it would be a benefit for ukulele players here to be able to jam with the fiddle and banjo players in their own language (songs). Time to work on some bluegrass songs. Most don't think of a ukulele as a bluegrass or country instrument so I may get some funny looks but hope to prove that the ukulele and banjolele are viable instruments in these genres. After all, clawhammer on a banjolele does have an old time sound and should compliment a smoking fiddle player's lead.
