    Singing in the Bathtub

    Since becoming hooked on this song after watching Phil Doleman and buying a waterman I am learning this song. I have the chords but would really like to be able to add in the riffs. There was a post by sillydave on SOTU that has a really nice melody. Could anyone point me in the right direction...

    8 String tuning help please! C

    My BR V2-T8 arrived this morning and I love it but am scratching my head with the C strings. So far I have it as follows: G4, G3 (Wound) C5, C4 (Is this correct or should it be C4 C3? The thinnest string is nearest the top of the uke) :confused: E4, E4 A4, A4

    Can you put Tenor strings on a Concert?

    I'm sorry if it's been asked before but I did try to search. I understand that they are a different gauge. I bought a single unwound Aquila red for my concert and am really not digging the Aquila strings on this. I have a tenor that I put D'addario pro-arte custom extruded on which I like. I...

    NUD - Kmise Solid Mahogany Top Tenor

    Well I must have got luckier than Bazmaz with his cat! I ordered this yesterday from Amazon and it was delivered this morning! £39.99! I figured that if it was pants or my hands were too small for a tenor I could return it via Amazon so had nothing to lose. Well I am very pleasantly surprised...

    Full Solid Mahogany vs Solid Top Acacia w Laminate Acacia Back & Sides?

    What are your thoughts on Full Solid Mahogany vs Solid Top Acacia w Laminate Acacia Back & Sides for a tenor? These are caramel models and there is not a lot in it regarding price. Which would give a better sound and be a better buy in your opinion? I am looking for a warmer rather than...

    Would you do it?

    I own a rare Fender Concord Acoustic Guitar with a Strat Headstock in mint condition that I bought from new in 1992. It has been a most beloved and treasured item since I bought it but I haven't played it in years due to back pain so it has become rather an expensive wall hanging. I am...

    Time to stop lurking!

    Hi, I've been lurking for the last few weeks since I purchased a cheap Mahalo U2K uke for a fiver and put some D'addario strings on it. I immediately fell in love. I have owned and played guitars for 30+ plus years but find that playing hurts my back too much and have hardly tinkled for far...
