    Ukulele on plane.?

    I just gifted my friend with a sopranisimo. Will she have any problems taking it from California to Seattle? It is so tiny she could carry it or possibly fit in her suitcase. Thank you very much.

    Girl in Susanville, CA?

    Did the talented youngster from Susanville ever receive a new uke of her own? Several months ago someone was offering a new ukulele, and her name came up. Thank you.

    Strumming with index finger

    Late in the game, I am strumming with my index finger for quick chords, back-and-forth. If you strum this way, do you let your fingernail touch the string? I guess the only other choice is to trim my fingernail back. Thank you for your help.

    Anyone have a KoAloha Soprano tuned to D?

    I have my KoAloha Soprano Pineapple tuned to the key of D as of today, with a low A. I can no longer play a larger instrument, and it sounds pretty good for my linear uke. Could it have too much tension? I have the KoAloha strings on it. Thank you.

    So disappointed and question

    My SK-38 Ohana Soprano from Mim is a wonderful instrument~ highly recommend it! I finally got around to taking the Aquila strings off and put on Martin 600s for the first time. I expected a great sound, and I guess it's OK, but the C string is so thick, I can't even keep it tuned. I don't...

    Pics of pets and ukuleles! Lets see yours!

    I've had such fun looking at your pets! Here are my two rescue dogs "listening" to the ukulele (looking rather shocked!). The little one is the size of a sopranino and the other little one the size of a soprano.

    Adjusting from one uke size to another?

    For those of you who play several sizes of ukulele, do your fingers adjust easily from playing one size to another? I'm particularly referring to the fret size differences. Do you find yourself playing one size more often that the others because they are more comfortable? Thank you.

    The Ukulele : A Visual History by Jim Beloff (2003, Hardcover, Revised) Why?

    Do you know why this book sells for such a high price? I have seen it for sale from $200-$1000. I have a copy, and I'm wondering if I should keep it in my safe! It is a very good book, by the way, and is available in paperback for a "normal" price. Thanks. . .
