“The Mighty Uke and the Girls that Slay It” is our March issue featuring Grace VanderWaal. My goal is to give broader exposure to this wonderful instrument and to focus on encouraging a beginner player to consider the ukulele, or for an established guitar player to consider adding the ukulele to their arsenal. I mean, if George Harrison and Paul McCartney could find a place in their music repertoire for the four-string small guitar, then why not create an entire act based on this instrument?

Grace VanderWaal came to mind, and she was a perfect fit for this issue with her recent partnership with Fender as their youngest signature artist ever and her new line of ukuleles coming out soon! And, she’s such a positive role model for young girls. I recently attended her Just The Beginning Tour, when she came through Atlanta, with my daughter and 2-½-year-old-granddaughter (I’m pretty sure she was the youngest fan in attendance) and the crowd was full of young girls and teenagers and it was great to see the smiling faces on these young girls.
I also met some amazing women at NAMM that can slay the uke, and I wanted to show them some love and introduce them to you. So, meet Olivia Millerschin, Lucy LaForge, and Brit Rodriguez.
In this issue, we also explore the shapes and tones of ukuleles, get a beginner uke lesson, review a Fender Zuma uke, a GiGY gig bag, and a few other gadgets designed for the ukulele, take a look at a Martin Guitar concert Uke, get a few tips from Ukulele Ray,
and some other fun stuff.
Thanks for your support…and let’s get started!
