    Universe of available steel-string electric ukuleles

    I picked up a Sparrow baritone a few months ago and I love it. I have an older Risa (the bean shaped one) but I find the string spacing is too narrow. The Sparrow has a nice wide fretboard and the string spacing is much more ukulele-like. Try one if you can, I think you'll like it :)

    Sold locally - No longer available : Mainland Cedar Top Baritone - Cosmetic Flaws

    If you are considering a solid top baritone to play, this Mainland might be for you! There are several dents in the cedar top, which were there when I bought this uke. They do not detract from the playability of the instrument in any way. It sounds and plays great. I'm only selling because I...

    Butterfly (New original song and video)

    This began life as a Seasons of the Ukulele entry a long time ago, but then things got away from me. I rediscovered them at the bottom of the sea.

    WTB Mainland Red Cedar Baritone Anybody got one?

    So, my daughter has taken my baritone off to college with her, so I have decided to upgrade to a Mainland Red Cedar. I usually try to buy used, because its cheaper and I don't mind a few dents or dings (save me the trouble and heartache that comes with scratching them up myself). Anyone got one...

    Evergreen - A Seasonal Original

    Here's a Seasonal original I wrote for the Seasons of the Ukulele. It features my friend Steve Shelton on guitar and tells the story of a man who goes into the woods to cut a tree, has a semi mystical experience, and goes home for a nice lie down. :) I figured I would share it here as well...

    Chipper Guy (and the Frantic Hand) - Original Song by John and Olivia Liebler

    This is a song I recorded for pabrizzer's recent any sharp any flat challenge. This one is in Bb, and was written about a family vacation in Canada last Summer. Each verse represents (in its own way) one of the cities we visited. The title refers to the cross signal figure who seems much happier...

    WTB Godin Multiuke (burst prefrred)

    Hey UU, I'm dropping out of lurk mode to see if anyone is thinking of selling a Godin Multiuke in the near future. My little mainland concert just can't hold it's own against the drums and guitars (not to mention accordions) in the band. If anyone's got one they're not playing, let me know. I...

    Can Someone suggest a string set for a Risa "Bean"

    Hi, I recently picked up a Risa bean-shaped tenor electric. It's fun to play with, but it is strung currently as a baritone, and I would like to go gCEA re-entrant on it. Is there a single set of electric guitar strings that would cover all the necessary gauges? Any suggestions would be...
