    Changing avatar sig?

    Not sure what it's called, but it's the bit beside the avatar that in my case currently says "Senior Member". I'd like to change the text there but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do it. Help, please? Thanx in advance!

    I'm back! / Why I like UU

    Hi! I used to be a regular member here, but picked up another stringed instrument and so have been spending time on the forum for that instrument. I found that forum very restrictive; post not directly related to that instrument? BAM! Deleted! No sense of humour there. So now I'm back here...

    A nice ukulele encounter

    I was supply teaching at a local elementary school the other day, and two students asked if they could work in the hall as it was too noisy in the classroom. I said sure. I opened the door to let them out, and there were about fifteen kids from another class all strumming ukes in the hallway...

    Have A Little Dream On Me - Fats Waller

    I heard this tune last night on one of the satellite music channels and fell in love with it. I can't find the chords anywhere online and would like to learn how to play it. Can anyone help me? (no tabs, please...I still need to learn how to read those suckers). For that matter, does anyone...

    New Banjo Ukulele!!

    Hey, folks! I just got a new banjo ukulele in the mail last night, and I gotta say I'm loving it! It's a Rally DUB-2F from seller taisamlu on eBay. You can't beat $210 delivered from Taiwan to Canada with a pretty nifty hard case included. I don't have any experience with banjo ukes, but...

    Your Chordie.com songbook

    I like that chordie.com has the "personal songbook" option to keep track of songs that you have learned/are learning. I especially like to play Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer" on the uke. Here's my list. What does yours look like? Act Naturaly (Buck Owens) Add It Up (Violent Femmes) All...

    Dramyen (Tibetan Lute)

    I went to see the Dalai Lama speak in Toronto yesterday, and before he came out there was a performance of traditional Tibetan music and dance. Some of the performers were playing the Dramyen, a type of lute originating in the Himalayan region, and I immediately fell in love with the thing. It...

    Your default song

    Sometimes when I'm doing something like watching TV, surfing on the computer, or even having a conversation, I'll pick up my uke and start absently strumming without really thinking about what I am playing. I usually find myself playing the same song or chord patterns every time, sort of like a...

    Fear - I Love Living In The City

    Hi, folks. I'm wondering if you can help me with the chords for this one. It's a great punk tune, one that seems pretty simple, but I can't figure it out. Any Fear fans who can help me learn "I Love Living In The City"?

    Mandolin 101?

    I'm looking for some advice. I've been playing the uke for about nine months and am really enjoying playing a stringed instrument. I'd like to learn to play the mandolin now, but know almost nothing about them, so I have a few questions; If I buy one, what should I look for? I'm left handed...

    Dreaming about ukeing

    Do any of you ever have dreams about seeing or playing ukuleles? A few nights ago I had a dream that I was teaching someone else to play, but when I went to strum, I had two broken strings and the other two were loose and useless. I remember being a little distressed about this in my dream...
