Are there any good ukulele magazines? Anything the equivalent of Guitar Player? Or something similar with history, tabs, trechniques, interviews etc.? Any links to their sites?

The best ukulele magazine out right now i think is the Japanese one Rolling Coconuts. Too bad it's all in Japanese.

I would, but I work with a lot of local magazines here in Hawaii, some of the bigger ones in the state, so I know how much work and how expensive it is to make one.

Maybe we could start small though...

Whatever became of:
The Ukulele Occasional (http://www.ukemag.com/) or
The Ukulele Magazine (http://ukulelemagazine.com/pages/1/index.htm) or
The Ukulele Gazette (http://forums.allaboutjazz.com/showthread.php?t=14423)?

yeah, like a quarterly publication or maybe an online magazine. Then you can get press credentials and get backstage to all the cool concerts. HIRE ME PLEASE. lol

making an online pub would be pretty easy. It would be getting people to write articles. th magazine isnt all that needed, cause most of the things i could think of that would be in a mag can be put on the site. (ie interviews, reviews, random rants/raves)
