    The Ukulele, sometimes abbreviated to “Uke”, is one of the smaller members of the guitar family of instruments.  Historically, this instrument employed strings made from natural gut, but over the years, technology has introduced nylon or “synthetic gut” strings for the ukulele for improved durability without sacrificing sound quality.  

    The Hawaiian word “Ukulele” is derived from the word “uke” meaning a gift and “lele” meaning “to come”.  There is also another translation of “ukulele” meaning “dancing flea”, perhaps a reference to the finger plucking action when played.  Since the late 1800s, the ukulele has undergone many transformations and has adapted itself to numerous style of music.  It is certainly an instrument that is appreciated and played all over the world, especially in recent years where it has gained enormous popularity.
