I gave probably tapped out on my skill as a uke player, and without intensive work won’t improve. I play instrumental arrangements and am happy with my ability, but will never learn to be Jake or Daniel Ho now. But on the guitar, I can’t wait to pick it up again as I am progressing from standing, to crawling and walking. The improvement is a huge emotional lift.

    I got a Taylor GS mini e-koa, and am pimping it out. I am getting new Gotoh 510 minis installed on it this week, and already added a koa truss rod cover and ebony/abalone bridge pins - the ebony/abalone strap button goes on this weekend. Since it is not as easy for me to see the small white dots, I also added abalone fret dot stickers that are much brighter and bigger, so easier to see. Going to the dark side has quickly become an addiction...

    That is awesome. I like what you are doing to "pimp out" for koa GS mini. I love the picture, great wall of koa!!!! They all look so good. I have heard of these items being done and I like the idea, might have to implement some of those to my spruce/walnut GS mini.

    Great to hear you are making good progress Stacey. I am the same, uke skills have transferred over well and I am up and "walking"

    I play a bunch of instruments, all badly.
    Tin Whistle and Anglo concertina for Irish Trad(mostly), ukulele (mostly concert and baritone), a little banjo and banjolele (though clawhammer seems to give my hands problems and pain).
    Just starting to get in to cigar box guitars with open tunings for blues.
    I really enjoy singing, but sing badly.
    Playing my Magic Fluke and grinning like a fool!

    Nice.......as I said in the opening I don't do this for money so if playing a bunch of different instruments badly makes us happy it's all good.
    Ukuleles.............yes please !!!!
