    Hemp Ukulele Strap

    Hey all! In preparation for this summer, in which I plan to do a lot of camping/hiking/beach-bumming/tree-climbing/riding/etc with an ukulele on me, I wanted to put a strap on one so it could be easily thrown over my shoulder and onto my back for those times when I want my hands free but don't...

    Bass Amp is buzzing like crazy :(

    I was all pumped yesterday to start laying down tracks for a new recording, and I plug in and the bass amp sounded terrible! It sounds like I'm playing through a fuzzbox on a low gain setting, so I'm guessing something happened with my speaker. I've had the amp for like 10 years and it's...

    Request for help on Bob Marley's Natural Mystic

    Hey everyone :D I'm working on an instrumental version of Natural Mystic and can't figure out the horn part. If anyone can help, I'd super appreciate it! It comes in around 1:50 in the song and again around 2:50. Here's a link to the song on youtube...

    Music Score Software

    Hi all! I have a cool program recommendation I thought I'd share with the community. So I'm working on my next multitrack, and since I'm using some instruments I'm not all that familiar with, I thought I'd attempt arranging the whole thing before actually learning the parts and getting...

    Nelson Ledges Quarry Park (Ohio)

    So I just got home from a reggae fest that lasted all weekend at this joint. It was amazing and it made me think of everyone from UWC. I just had to come on here to share that this place exists and that those who loved UWC would love the music festivals at this place-- it's an old quarry...

    New Youtube Changes

    A couple days ago I got a message saying I was chosen to start seeing the way the video playback screen on youtube is going to start working. Has anyone else seen this? You might want to check it out. (personally, I dislike just about all of the changes.) Here's a decent video showing some...

    String Poll!

    I saw that there's a thread or two about specific recomendations for strings. I thought it'd be good to just see how many of us prefer which types without getting into the actual specifics and brands. So what do you wind your electric bass with?

    Woot Woot UAS

    So I've been pretty darn good at sticking to just my Flea for the little over a year I've been playing without buying another uke (although I have bought quite a few other instruments to add to the arsenal :D) However, today I had some great news. I called up a credit card company to cancel a...

    Thunderbird Bass

    My favorite bass has always been the Gibson Thunderbird, but I could never justify spending that much given the current amount of time I play bass. And I didn't want to settle for the Epiphone version since I found the Epi Flying V more versatile in sound than the Epi T-bird when I was...

    Bonjourno! If any of you feel up to helping me make a set list, I'm searching for suggestions of jazz standards I should learn. I would really appreciate any suggestions :) I was asked to play at an Art Gallery this February and am too self-loathing of a singer to attempt any uke/vocal...

    Born To Be Wild

    Here's another multitrack I just finished today. This one was a ton of fun to make. I hung a green bedsheet on the wall to try out some green screen effects and belted a camera onto my ankle to get some motorcycle riding shots for a back drop. I'm really happy with the result-- hope you like...

    Chameleon Ukulele

    I came across an artist while looking at Monkey Island stuff just now (since she has some MI themed stuff). Her art is just super cool imho. Anyway, one of the photos in her gallery is an ukulele she painted! Here's a link-- I just think it's so cool and wanted to share the find :D...
