    Originally I think all Ukuleles were built like this. At least I've never seen an early Hawaiian model with an extended fretboard. Even when Martin came in, the tiny low extension they added didn't...

    Well, it's a very fluid situation with the video. Turns out the one I posted earlier today was not the official Shamarr Allen version. It was taken down for unauthorized use of NFL footage. ...

    Hit the Sean Payton

    Thought folks might like to see how we roll down south. Saints are in the playoffs for the first time in awhile. We won in the first round against Carolina last Sunday.

    After the game, cameras...

    Tua plays Ukulele

    First, I'm not an Alabama fan (Roll Wave, Geaux Tigers).

    But for those outside North America or who don't follow sports in general, Alabama won the college football national championship on...

    Flashmob Venezuela

    Here's something I came across recently. It's shot in the Casco (old quarter) of Maracaibo, the second largest city in Venezuela. The first Europeans arrived at the old Arawak/Carib town in 1499. ...

    No problem! That was an excellent post; the insights were valuable. As far as a lack of difference in sound, they are all standard Tenor Ukuleles and are all tuned the same. That, in and of...

    With Jorge Glem and Jake, possibly the two top "Ukulele" players extant both using their thumbs, you certainly don't want to dismiss this technique, even if it doesn't suit you personally. But I'd...

    So this was Fat's last performance at Jazz Fest in 2001. I was there that day (over to the right). Fats followed first Dr. John, and then Ray Charles onto the stage. What an afternoon! But as...

    This is an especially sad day here in New Orleans. Fats is so beloved here. Everyone has his music embedded in their souls. We all saw him struggle to get his modest 9th ward home back after...

    First, everybody that builds musical instruments is a “designer”. It seems like the initial thrust of this thread was to not take your designs too far afield. That was the recipe for “designing for...

    Everyone who replied gave you good advice, pix. I'll try to add something on the "does a cutaway take anything from the sound" issue.
