View Full Version : I thought I was over my UAS!

But it turns out I wasn't.

I just bought a guitalele. I figured I'd see how I liked playing with 6 strings. If it doesn't suit me, then I can always flip it on the marketplace without losing too much money because I bought it second hand anyway. Now I just need to be patient until it arrives.

Yeah, I've thought that a few times, even went for a while without any desire for anything else, but, it seems we all relapse...:D

It happens.....

Thankfully, my UAS stopped when I found my perfect uke - I now have other things taking my money though.... :rolleyes:

Congratulations, used is the smart way to go, done that a number of times and sold for about the same price. I hope you enjoy the guitalele, seems like it would be fun.

We are never cured of UAS........just go into periods of remission.

Just don't buy another one before that one arrives. If you do, you'll know it's terminal. :D

Congratulations Robin, they are fabulous little instruments, enjoy! :D Just give me a yell if you need any guitar tabs! :D

Thanks Cam. I might do that. I think it will take me a while to get used to the two extra strings, so I might not be up for anything too complicated for a little while.

good choice Robin. they are a lot of fun.
wondering if you have a baritone in your collection?
whole different sound and many new possibilities.
something to consider in the future perhaps...

Hi Jon, a baritone's the other one I don't have, and I would think about getting one if the right one was available and I had some spare cash.

According to the seller, the guitalele is currently strung A to A, but I noticed that Aquila is selling Red sets for guitalele that are designed to be tuned like a guitar, so perhaps I can kill two birds with one stone if I end up buying a set of them.

perhaps as a starting point, and a way to familiarise yourself with baritone tuning,
but honestly mate we're talking about very different beasts

What a way to fuel my UAS even more! Oh well, this purchase is more to try a few things out than anything, so it will be fun to play with...

Robin, did you see the warning inscribed over the doorway to UAS-landia? Abandon all hope Ye who enter here!
