Give in to the dark side. You know you WANT it. Why perambulate around the issue when you can leap head first into the maw of self-indulgence?

OF COURSE it will motivate you to play better. You will be amazed at the improvement in sound. You will want to play it more and more because it sounds so damn good. And all that extra playing time is PRACTICE. Practice is what really makes you better, but if you need a new uke to do so, then get one.

im a beginner trying to play advanced songs
I only got my uke today so am just messing around and gettin' used to it, but I taught myself guitar, and I would advise against trying to learn songs that are advanced when you are a beginner, simply because it gets frustrating. I would suggest learning a simple song and learning it so you can play right through with few mistakes, feel proud of yourself for a bit, then learn something else, perhaps a bit harder. Work your way up to the more advanced stuff... no-one gets there straight away, it always takes time.

I can't really say anything much about whether you should buy a new uke, that's really your choice (and I don't know a whole huge amount about 'em either...)

You should always buy a new uke whenever you can afford it. UAS is inevitable, so just give it a head start. LOL

true true, i took guitar lessons for 2 years and quit because i got so frustrated learning! once i got to the advance stuff it was too much practice and i wasnt having fun anymore...but it did help tremendously, right when i got my uke i played a bunch of songs because of knowing guitar, plus it was funner because its smaller

One of my favorite quotes...

"It is faster to make a four-inch mirror and then a six-inch mirror, than to make a six-inch mirror." -- Thompson's Rule for First-Time Telescope Makers

In other words, if you start simple and work your way up to advanced, you'll get there quicker than if you just jumped right in with the hard stuff.

P.S. Yes, get a new uke. :D

You should check out mainlandukuleles.com and the reviews found on Youtube and this forum. They are beautiful, sound great, have different customizing options at no charge and are a little less than the Bushman's. I have only heard great things about them. I am currently saving for one myself, and the owner couldn't be a better guy.

2 rules:

1. Regarding the question, "should I buy a new uke," the answer is always YES.

2. Regarding the question of which one to buy, it is good to listen to all the suggestions offered, but in the end, buy the one YOU want!

Now go forth :)

For what it's worth...

I only had my Lanikai for about 3 weeks before I contracted UAS and bought a Mainland mahogany concert. So according to my calculations, you are way overdue for a new uke. And besides...you deserve it. :D

NatalieLin6
07-07-2009, 02:43 PM
I understand, it seems that people either do or don't like Mainlands for that reason. I personally love the rope binding, but to each his own. Happy ukulele hunting!

Lori
07-07-2009, 03:42 PM
During my first four months of playing the uke, I bought 4 ukuleles. So, YES, if you want more ukuleles, go for it! Each one sounds different, and it is nice to have different tunings on different ukes.

As far as trying to play something that is too advanced for you: Try and find another song that is easier... that you really would like to play. At the same time, take the easier sections of "Weeps", and try to learn them. Trying to tackle the whole thing at once might be too frustrating at the beginning. But as you learn new songs that are easier, they will prepare you for the more difficult parts of the advanced songs. Eventually, you will be able to do the more difficult parts, and you will know the whole song.

I'm so taking Lori's advice! It is definitely daunting to try harder songs...actually, it's just hard for me to pick these strings and make it sound okay.

If a new uke is calling out to you, might as well buy it and be happy! As long as you can afford it, I'd go for it.

I would probably have a serious case of UAS if it weren't for my being broke constantly :)

You could also look at an Ohana. They are basically the same as Bushman and Mainland. They don't have a rope binding and are cheaper than Bushman.

Ukulele playing and collecting is a very wholesome and enriching activity. It should be encouraged. There are plenty of other interests/ activities she would find less desirable.

If you really don't like the rope binding, or any other detail on a uke, get another one. Part of the joy is the look of the instrument. You will be happier if you hold out for that perfect combination of sound and appearance and playability.

You might find, over time, that your tastes might change... and you might start to like the rope binding detail. I know when I first saw it, I couldn't think of anything except "mini-cowboy guitar". But, now that I know a little more about ukulele design history, I am starting to like it more.

LoL I used to think the same (cowboy style), but the Mainlands I've seen on here are just so glossy and beautiful... how could anyone resist!:p I also didn't understand why everyone was raving about fleas/flukes because I thought those were ugly! But you know what... they are really starting to grow on me and I'm considering purchasing one in the near future! A few stickers on them to customize and voila! :D Besides, I haven't really heard anything bad about them and they look much different than most other ukes.
Kinda funky and unique. :)

Because I hear so much raving about them that I really want to like them. But they're still just too "Woody's Round-up (http://www.movieposter.com/posters/archive/main/18/A70-9483)" for me. :(

Some of the real old-time ukuleles had that detail. Here's a reproduction of a Leonardo Nunes uke design from the late 1800's. So maybe we should think Hawaiian cowboy.

So many of the old time ukes had a great style to them. I felt alot of the current ukes on the market had lost a little of that. :shaka:

Here's a couple more examples: from Manuel Nunes (detail from Jim Beloff's The Ukulele A Visual History) and a DaSilva replica "Jose do Espitito Santo". Once I saw these truly vintage ukuleles, and pictured them as some of the earliest designs, I lost some of that "old western" cowboy vibe. Now when I see the rope binding - I see that it was something that was indeed an authentic design in Hawaiian uke history.

lol i still see cowboy in them, maybe one day i will want one, but for now i like the plain glossy ukes.....ive been trying to find some ukes with hawaiian flowers on them, but all im finding are those $30 toy ukes
-an old fluke had a really nice red hawaiian flower on it, but they stopped selling them a few years ago =/
---i have major UAS, ive only been playing for a few months and i already have a list of ukes i want :eek:

Hey, it doesn't hurt to make a wish list! Just make sure you are playing as much as you are shopping/ researching. I am trying to memorize enough songs so that when I get to a nice uke store, I will be able to give them a good test for sound, playability, and intonation. So, I am learning a good strumming song, and a picking song that goes fairly high on the neck. Also, learning low G and high G songs (sometimes the high end ukes are strung in low G).
I think this is a fun addiction. Just try and stay within your budget, and all is well!

Not that this is really an argument you could use to sway a parent but...

As a teenager I spent my money on far less worthy things and spent my summer days engaging in far less wholesome activities than playing the ukulele. :D It could be far, far worse. But, "at least I'm not spending my money on six packs and cigarettes" isn't an argument any parent would want to hear. :biglaugh:

And as to your original question... go for it! Did you buy the Bushman yet or still waiting?

Congratulations on ordering your new ukulele! And the custom Fluke will be a winner also! You have some pretty decent hobbies, so if your Mom gets a little upset with the uke collection, she will get over it.

At art school, I had a teacher who liked to tell this story:
He was designing a new machine for a company that was very conservative. He wanted to make the color of the new design a nice blue (all their other machines were grey). He knew they would reject that idea if he presented it. So he suggested lime green. They were outraged with the idea and rejected it immediately. Still in shock over the lime green, he then presented the blue color, and they said "That's better" breathing a sigh of relief. They ended up going with the blue.

So, maybe suggest a new, less desirable pursuit (from a Mom's viewpoint), like rock climbing, or motorcycles, or sky diving. All of the sudden, ukuleles sound much better.

My Bushman Jenny Tenor is the nicest sounding ukulele I've ever played, including a couple of the K brands. It has a fuller sound than my wife's Jenny Concert but it also has more space between frets. If your hand could handle a tenor I would definitely go for it!

I'm still waiting to buy my Bushman Jenny Tenor Cutaway. I've been playing guitar for 27+ years and Ukulele for almost a year now. I've owned two ukuleles, both Oscar Schmidt. My first was a laminated spruce concert job that was a good start for cheap, my second was a solid mahogany concert that sounds great but I need more room on the fretboard for fingerings.

If I have the $$ I'd be buying either a Kamaka, G-String, etc. but the top end I can afford after just getting married and still paying for that ring is the Big Island Deluxe Honu Tenor Cutaway. I love the Honu look and have heard good things about it, so it might be my dream uke for now until I can afford hawaii hand built.

Which puts me right back to the bushman/mainland/ohana models being good solid wood for cheap!

i think im going to stick with what i ordered, i might regret it if i change my mind :p
but thankya

i ended up canceling my bushman order...i ordered it a few months ago and it was taking way too long, school already started and its not here!
so i'm using the money i got back for my custom fluke (i'm sure i'll like it better anyway) =p
sad to cancel it though =/
