Screwing it up

Oh what fun. Having screwed up the tuning pegs I screwed up the tuning, but got there in the end. Manage to avoid saying anything inappropriate when I’m told I can have a high G string or a low G string.

What no one told me as I embarked on this venture is that it’s jolly difficult. Getting banana fingers round chords is tricky enough, but mercy, it hurts the fingers. I begin to see why sturdy uke-playing Northerners reckon we’re a namby pamby lot down in the south.

I might have to seek out a pint or two of Tetley’s to help toughen up the finger pads.
