One gift I got myself a couple of months back was a baritone ukulele. It’s been really fun to play. It has four strings and I tune mine in fourths like a bass guitar, since I have some experience with that and none with a six string guitar. This is a really unconventional tuning but it works well for me. I taught myself how to play the accompanying chords to about 15 Christmas songs and so far several Childrens songs. My plan is to keep expanding this. I’ve been playing at home most nights for RJ and SR. RJ loves to dance and sing along. I’m really glad I got this instrument. It’s a great stress reliever.
