Before Jimi Hendrix had a guitar he used his to imagine he had one. He remembered dancing around his father's apartment strumming a broom, hearing all different types of Rock n Roll in his head. He even took it to school! Of course everyone thought he was crazy. Then one day his Al was working in his neighbors basement and found an old ukulele, which he gave to Jimi. The ukulele was in poor condition and had only one string but for Jimi it was way better it was a huge improvement aside from the broom. The ukulele became his favorite toy during his childhood until he got older and finally bought a acoustic guitar.
