Ukulele

Part of the Blogging from A to Z challenge 2012 for the letter U


A Ukulele is a string instrument similar to a guitar only with a higher pitch, and, happens to be one of the coolest instruments around. For most the first image when mentioning one of these  is a sunny Hawaiian beach with a man in a loud shirt and lei strumming Aloha Oe under the palms. 

Actually the ukulele is more popular than one would imagine. Great Britain has a wonderful group. The Ukulele Orchestra who preforms tunes such as Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones, Born This Way by Lady GaGa, Enter Sandman by Metalica. 

Okay enough talk let's give a listen and see how cool a Uke can be.
