I can has Ukulele?

So all that listening to the amazing Luka Bloom yesterday got me thinking about how much I wish I could play guitar.

I bought an acoustic guitar with my first paycheque from my first ever job at 15. I didn’t know much about them and ended up being sold a huge thing with a thick fret and steel strings. Not very playable for someone with short girlie fingers. So I learned a few chords but never did much else coz well, it hurt and I struggled to make chord shapes with short little fingers.

So yesterday I thought “what about a little Ukulele?” and I might just go ahead and give it a go this weekend.

So Ukulele connoisseurs, any advice on what to buy/not buy/where to go in Dublin for one?
