This is my second day with the Mainland glossy concert. I've noticed it's pretty slippery when I try to play it close to clothing. Perhaps this is a better instrument for no shirt, or a tank top. My previous Lanikai had a matte finish, and it stuck to me a little better. Just some adjustments I suppose. I'm still learning how and where to hold it.

If I'm wearing a long sleeve shirt, I just pulled them up. That way, my strumming arm supports it.

Also, it keeps your strings from being muted by your cuffs. :)

A wad of chewing gum to the back always keeps my glossy ukes from sliding. If you have an navel (naval) ring then an eye (i) (Aye) screw on the back of said ukulele then just affix.

Do certain brands of gum work better than others?
