    I have been to them all except the first. Always been worth the effort.

    2017 was a very interesting year.
    The low point was having the motor home broken into at the Reno festival and several instruments stolen.
    A much better experience was when they were recovered from...

    A good hard shell case is a good investment. Even though your current instrument may not be high priced, your future ukes may be.

    Here is my rule of thumb. If I find it to hard to sing I transpose it to the four chord.
    A song in G, I would try C.

    I know a top class luthier that uses fishing leader (flouro-carbon) on all his ukes.
    I won’t name drop, but I am guessing almost everyone here would love to own one of his ukes.
