    I hope this song is appropriate. It's an instrumental, so it's not specifically about anything, but given the famous movie series it's associated with, I think it is generally though of in terms of...

    Would I spend extra to get a solid top? - yes
    Would I buy a Luna? - no (by the way, I own a Luna Tattoo uke. It's not terrible, but you can do so much better for the price)

    This trick has saved me many times, although it can make arpeggios a bit challenging.

    Sorry to all the people early in the playlist. I haven't had time to comment your videos, but I enjoyed them...

    Of those options, I'd get the Mahogany Pono. I haven't played Cordoba ukes, but the Cordoba looks nice too. I'm also quite partial to the Spruce top Islander there, but like you, I'm not partial to...

    I agree, but I'd also price some other repair options just for the sake of due diligence.

    You aren't going to get an exact figure on here, but I think we can all agree that it's worth a lot of...

    I know that feeling cold is really skirting the bounds of "touch" but please allow it. I really wanted to do this to commemorate Dolores O'Riordan. There is no way I can even approach the quality of...

    I agree with Jim. Apart from fixing the mistakes in the arrangement, it sounds much better with a few seventh chords added. See Choirguy's arrangement for where to add them.

    Alright. I'll save Suicide is Painless for another season, then. I'll try for my backup option.

    Well, that's another matter altogether, which I'll leave up to the host's discretion, but senses like proprioception, balance, pain, temperature-sensing, etc., have been shown to exist independently...

    I just wanted to mention that there are a whole lot more than 5 senses. If someone had a song about proprioception, etc., would that be acceptable? (I'm not saying that I do, but I'm asking just in...

    In my experience, the first fret is always the hardest to barre. It is only a problem if it is significantly harder than other instruments. In your case, I have no idea if it's a problem, but it...

    I don't think it's a generational issue. It's just a matter of experience. These days, strumming patters don't worry me in the slightest. I can just work something out naturally. I year or two ago, I...

    I'm not claiming to be an expert by any means, but I've found that the lower string tension of a concert offsets the extra string length of a tenor in this regard.

    Is the video not embedded? I'm not sure why... I did everything right as far as I know.

    Edit: Fixed it.

    I'm just starting to catch up after being away for most of the week.

    First off, I'm really sorry to hear about Linda's mother in law. On the other hand, congratulations to Jon and Joo.

    Anyway,...

    In my (admittedly limited) experience, whether notes ring out up the fret board has more to do with the type of strings than the length of the scale.

    The longer scale of the tenor will give you a...

    I'd better bring something this season. It's the 100th season since my first entry! Won't even have a chance to pick up a uke until Fri, though, so no guarantees.

    Hobart is average by Australian standards, which is pretty poor by world standards. However, I wasn't in Hobart at the time. I was at Cradle Mountain.
