    Baritone Chord Melody Resources

    Thanks Jack! I’m using a Cocobolo short neck. I fully expect the strings to work well as I previously had them on a tenor and the sound was fantastic. I was able to get lucky land the Cocobolo so I sold the tenor. I would expect a longer sustain on the baritone.

    Baritone Chord Melody Resources

    I have recently purchased a short neck baritone ukulele that came with linear gCEA tuning but I plan to restring with Pepe Romero baby baritone strings. I’m still working through the Ukulele Way on my tenor and was wondering if there are any other similar chord melody resources for baritone...

    SOLD Cocobolo Tenor FS

    I noticed that you both mentioned about the neck width on this (see e.g., here:, but reviews on YT talk about the wider neck of Cocobolo ukes. I have a KoAlnna with a 38mm and liked it much more...

    Ukulele - General Considerations

    As someone that’s still a new Ukulele player I’ve come to realize the best Uke is the Uke that makes you want to play. So hopefully he finds that by strumming them in store. The three most important factors for me are the size of the instrument when I’m holding it (started with a concert but now...

    Demo- Pono Baby Baritone

    Surprisingly I was actually completely fine with only 1 tenor. The only reason I’m getting a second is because I was picked in the most recent Cocobolo lottery. My perfect set of three now would include a Magic Fluke Firefly tenor banjolele and I think I’ll be set. Maybe I’ll string that low G...

    Demo- Pono Baby Baritone

    I didn’t know that a baby baritone conversion was even a thing. This is fantastic because I’m about to get my second tenor and have been wondering what to do with my current one so it doesn’t go unused. I much prefer the idea of making it a baritone instead of a low g tenor. Thanks for the...

    The KoAlana is amazing! I partly wish I would have been able to start on something like it sooner. The bigger body size, nut width, neck width and fluorocarbon strings are such a noticeable improvement. I’ll definitely be staying away from the nylguts moving forward for my fingers relief.

    I’ve always wanted to play ukulele and finally decided I’d make the plunge last month in late June. I was listening to a song that featured the ukulele (which I now know was finger picking) while mowing the lawn and decided to look up beginner ukulele videos on YouTube. I felt I could learn from...
