    My Flea Market Find

    I this plastic uke over the weekend at a local antiques Flea Market. It was so strange the way it happened that I knew it must be fate - this Flamingo was meant for me! I had gotten to the market right when it opened and instead of going to the very end aisles, I went straight down the middle...

    Luna High Tide Tenor Ukulele Cutaway Ovangkol Acoustic Electric Uke 26"

    I decided to try a Tenor ukulele but I honestly like the Concert size better. It's basically new and has only been played a few times. A little about it from Luna's website: Deep ovangkol woodwork and an onboard preamp makes this island 4-string a picker's dream. The Luna Guitars High-Tide...

    Do You Use a Pick, Fingers, Piece of Folded Paper?

    My dad strums with his fingers. I tried it - it really kind of gives me the willies. So I tried a felt pick. I didn't like that either - it seemed too stiff and thick. So then I ripped a piece of paper and folded it. Kind of weird but that's what I like the best right now. Any tips out...

    Eleuke Peanut Ukulele

    Peanut Eleuke MP3 Question

    I'm new to playing ukulele - only been playing for about 4 months. I'm already addicted and now I own a couple including a Eleuke Peanut that just arrived today. While my Peanut arrived in great condition, in tune and sounded fine when I hooked it up to my amp, I cannot for the life of me...
