Last year I took some uke lessons. The lessons weren't exactly highbrow, mostly geared towards people with zero musical knowledge or experience. But it gave me an incentive to practice and the group was nice, so it was fun. Fast forward a couple of months after those lessons ended, and an innocent whatsapp message from yours truly led to a get-together of the group. We all played ukes and sang, and basically had a good time. Picked a new date, and decided to do this on a monthly basis. That new date was today. Since I hadn't actually practiced any uke in the meantime, and since I knew there was a small bass amp at the host's house, I suggested taking my upright WAV 4 (alongside my uke). It went down a storm. Everyone loved it and I ended up playing zero uke all night. Since there is no drummer or percussionist, I kept it simple. Mainly roots, some fifths and towards the end of the evening - as I got reacquainted with the electric upright - a good deal of chromatic fills. We were discussing a new date for next month and when I told them to go ahead without me for one specific date, I was told: "No, we can't rehearse without our bass player!"
