    Original Song - Lamy's Song (Fleeting Hearts)

    Hello folks, it has been a while since I have written an original song. Emotional pain has always been the motivator for my music, and I guess I haven't felt this sad in years. Anyway, I hope it is something you can enjoy!

    Mystery pear-shaped ukulele from Japan - please help identify!

    Do vibrations to the soundboard improve tone?

    Spinning off from the recent debate that occurred in the Tonerite topic, I am seriously wanting to know whether anyone could plausibly explain the physics behind the old adage that instruments improve in sound from constant playing, since the 'vibrations' of being played improve the properties...

I play low-G most of the time, and play a number of solo instrumentals that rely on that low-G note. However, I also like the sound of high-G and have a few songs that sound better...

    High Quality Friction Tuners to fit 7mm peg hole?
