    Since the UOGB is different enough from an actual symphony orchestra, there likely will never be an issue. No one is going to buy tickets to the symphony and feel misled because they were expecting 8...

    This. Plus, according to the article, the UKOB has conceded that it has "diluted" the brand and registered trademark of the UOGB shows intent on the former to ride the popularity of the latter.

    No one that I know of. The smallest diameter wire I believe you can get is around a .004, which is automatically going to give you .008 in wrap diameter even before you factor in the core wire. There...

    That's possible. Either a .009 or .010 might work, since the scale length of the instrument is such that it would put minimal tension on the body (the .009 would be around 8.5lbs and the .010 is...

    Basically. It's a byproduct of marketing at this point, and something for a company to use to claim their string is somehow different or special from everyone else, although it sounds from your links...

    I believe the ML series from Boat Paddle Ukulele fits the bill of what you're after. They offer a concert neck on a tenor body.

    Craig Chee and I made up a set of bari-tenor strings, but in re-entrant tuning. It's not that hard to cobble something together, since ukulele and classical guitar strings are the exact same type of...

    Usually, the "top" string is referred to as the string that is the highest pitch, which is usually the closest to your foot if you're looking at the instrument as you hold it.

    But where do you take it? Do you just figure out what your thought was and leave it at that, or do you then try to find some useful applications for it?

    Exactly. When I was learning a new solo piece, I would play through it once at a slow tempo, ALL THE WAY THROUGH. Make notes of the mistakes and tricky passages, and then spend some time focusing on...

    You missed the entire point. Where did I start on those techniques? 60bpm. I doubt many of the people that are practicing start with a metronome anywhere near that. Once you get it in your muscle...

    I'd actually say to turn DOWN the tempo of the metronome. It's a lot harder to play patterns and passages at a slower tempo than it is to play it faster. Plus, it makes your internal metronome and...

    It is most definitely a brand, and a company behind it.
