OK, here it is!
The website for
A Grand Northern Ukulele Festival
has just gone live.
12th-13th October 2013
Pontefract Town Hall
Early Bird tickets are on sale now.
I thought I'd mention that we (meaning a good half dozen people and myself) are planning a ukulele festival in mid-late October in the North of England. We've actually talked about it a lot, met a number of times and convinced ourselves that we should build it (and people might come)...
I thought I'd say "Hi" here because it is quite some time since I posted anything on UU and many of you will not know me at all.
I am an enthusiastic amateur ukulele player, singer and songwriter and not particularly good at any of them. I used to do lots of cover versions of...
Does anyone know the maker of the enclosed, geared, black tuners that Lâg use on their ukes, and, more importantly, where I can buy a set?
failing that, would the Schaller M6 mini series be appropriate for a uke?
OK I know I'm not new here but I suspect I was forgotten and given up for dead.
Been out of the uke loop for a while due to family circumstances and a disheartening run in with the copyright cops that left me feeling a bit disillusioned. Anybody visiting my Youtube channel lately will see a...

Last Sunday At Belper Town Football Club the first Belper Ukulele Festival Took place and a fine time was had by all. If you were there and wondered what the racket was in the far corner, wonder no more:
I just saw this Youtube clip
Eric Bradford is a very talented ukulele player and all-round musician who has fallen foul of the copyright goons for having the temerity to post a Hotel California cover.
Please visit his channel and offer...
I got a new soprano uke in mango wood by BAton Rouge the other day and I LOVE IT!
Have a look at it in this video and listen to my version of Little Sadie (one take)
A couple of months ago a chap called Rob Shoesmith approached me after viewing my Youtube Channel to ask if I'd write a song about him. It's not as bonkers as it seems! He is a refuse collector (Bin-man in UK parlance) who has devised an application for the Apple iPhone and he wanted a theme...
I have loads of bits of songs that I have written. Bits of melody, nice chord sequences even snatches of lyrics but I find it difficult to pluck an idea out of my head and complete it.
When someone says, "will you write a song about..." I have a better chance of coming up with something and...
There's an amusing little website that searches the internet for positive and negative comments on whatever you ask it to search. It then tots up the results and comes out with the Internets opinion on your chosen subject.
I typed in Ukulele and it came out that the opinions expressed by...
Does anyone here know anything about Baton Rouge Ukuleles?
I have just been to Music Ground in Leeds and they have a selection of Baton Rouge ukes. I want a decent soprano as the sopranos I own are terrible (my best one is a Maholo) and so every time I see one I try it. They have quite a nice...
I know a lot of people here post on Youtube and the comments that are posted are not always related to the music.
One comment I get quite a bit is "Kyle Gass" which I, originally, thought was internet-speak for...I don't know what. I'm not up on that sort of thing - I thought LOL meant Lots of...
Is it just me or is this Fender Nohea Tenor Ukulele Koa Laminate just plain ugly?
It appears to have a telecaster headstock (not the prettiest Fender guitar head) that just jars with the beautiful lines that a ukulele ought to have.
Has anyone tried one of these?
Fender are a good name in...
I am writing a song at the moment. I say writing, but nothing is really written down as such because I don't read music or tabs. I also do not know the name of half the chords I play.
So, I was wondering, does anypne know the names of these two chords that feature in my new song?
If you live in the UK you'll know how difficult it is to get a soprano uke between the price range £25-£250. They are either cheap and nasties or top of the range.
Well I went into Hobgoblin Music today (there'll be a store in a city near(ish) to you) and they have a solid mahogany top soprano...
I'm interested in what video editing software people use. I only use Windows Moviemaker, but it is slow and not very precise but it is FREE
I have seen some great videos with excellent editing and effects like split screen (I'd love that) and more. So, what do you use, why and what 'couldn't...
