    Rugby Songs

    This will be a very long introduction to the question, but I'm hoping I can tell the story interestingly. First a caveat: I'm not a very good uke player. I've been playing for a couple of years but have not put much time in it, nor am I particularly talented with my fingers. I can play...

    I did something stupid Today

    I don't want to be a smarty pants, because I don't do this sort of work, but there is a product that might help with this sort of thing, if I could suggest it (just by way of trying to be helpful). Finger Cots.

    New US Copyright Laws

    There are two new bills in the US Congress right now about internet copyrights. I don't know all the particulars, but it looks like if they pass everyone who covers a copyrighted song could spend 5 years in jail. What will this do to uke videos?

    Uke Number 2 for Christmas

    I know it's a long way off yet, but my wife is going to need a lot of convincing (she just doesn't understand why anyone would need more than one ukulele). I got a Lanikai LU21 last Christmas and have played it nearly everyday since. I'm not really all that good, but I'm having fun and have...

    Uke Shop in Lake County Illinois

    I'm in Mundelein, IL (near Libertyville). There are two or three music shops nearby, but none has more than about 2 ukes. Anybody know of a uke shop in Lake or McHenry counties? I'd rather not drive down to the city if I can help it. Thanks.

    Soprano for Scout Campfire

    I would like to be able to lead songs at Boy Scout campfires, but I'm afraid that my soprano might be too quiet and I understand that concerts and tenors are louder. Is this true? Will my Lanikai be loud enough (kind of hoping the answer is no so I have more ammunition with which to convince...

    Bad Early Review

    So I got my Lanikai LU-21 for Christmas and I've practiced everyday at least a little bit. A couple of nights ago my wife and 9yo were dancing in the kitchen to no music. I jumped up to grab my ukulele and provide some. They all yelled, "NO!" My wife, my baby daughter and my two teen...

    Don't put it in your mouth

    Well, I was just going to blow the blue monsters off, until Aslan told me, now I'll never put anything in my mouth until I ask someone I love.

    What is the easiest Christmas song/carol?

    We do Christmas over at my Mom's house on New Year's weekend. I got a uke for Christmas. All these 9 chord Christmas songs/carols are pretty hard. Is there an easy one I could learn?

    Please help me match Ends with Means

    Hi, I'm new and this is my first post. I've looked at quite a few "what to get" threads and I thought it might be best to describe my situation and desired Ends so it might be easier to help me find my ukulele Means to get there. I played sax from 2nd grade through High School, and I still own...
