Thread Name: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Subject: RE: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Yeah.... The downstroke with the fingernail on "Take the A-Train" is superfluous and sort of a ukulele cliché. Unnecessary and a bit distracting. Most of the really nice music--with the exception of genuine Hawaiian music--is minus the "ukulele clichés."

Dunno if that makes sense, but it does to me.
