Hi everyone,

I already play the guitar for an year, and I am in the band named "Beauty and the Beast" with an good friend :D but i dont think you heard about us.
I like to go longboarding or sailing in the summer.
anyway are there any other dutch ukulele players?

The ukulele is done when I glue the brige on the uke, but is only woodglue going to stick? or do i need crews or something?

oh and does someone as some advise on strings? i think i can get them at the local music store but if i can choose between some brands or sizes witch one to choose?

Hallo en welkom op Ukulele Underground!

I am a Dutchie now living in Australia.

You don't need screws to hold the bridge down, but make sure you let the glue dry properly before stringing it up. Aquila strings is what many people prefer, but I doubt your local store would have them. Buy them online (there's ukulelewinkel.nl I believe).
