    It always amazes to what lengths people will go to in order to make playing the ukulele complicated, and I always wonder what they are trying to prove by doing so. Just saying. ;) That's a winkey...

    Back on track, when it comes to re-entrant vs linear, I find that playing without those lower notes is a challenge to me musically. It requires a bit of understanding about how notes go together. It...
