    Can You Color Clear Ukulele Strings?

    Okay, so here's a crazy question ... forgive me if it's been asked before (I googled, but couldn't find anything), or if it's completely wacko. I regularly recommend to new players that they immediately upgrade their new uke to fluorocarbon strings (PLEASE don't tell me why I shouldn't...

    Happy Father's Day

    Happy Father's Day to all the dads and kids of dads out there! I just re-recorded my dad song for Father's Day. I know when I first recorded this, for Season 100, tributes to loved ones who'd died, that there were at least three or four other Seasonistas who also posted original "dad songs"...

    A string snapped ... gouges in frets ... soprano Flea

    A relatively new Martin M600 A string just snapped on my soprano Flea. Replaced the set July 21 ... only about 7 weeks ago. Looks like it snapped at the tuner. All the strings had settled nicely for the last month or more. They barely ever needed the least bit of tuning. I'd pull it out of...
