    Hi Gary,
    I hope the chords worked out for you.
    the short answer is that you are playing the same chord equivalents by using capos. For example, a capo on 2nd fret means you are playing two half- steps up, and a Bm chord becomes a C#m equivalent (or played in overall key of C#m). On the guitar, a capo on the 9th fret Will make the Em guitar chord played as overall key of C#m. It is all about chord equivalents. I hope that makes sense. let me know if you have any more questions

    Hey Gary,
    I don't remember if Daniel was at the NorCal Uke Fest last year (I looked for a list of 2011 performers online, but there isn't one), and I couldn't find anything about his April plans on his website, but I guess it's possible he'll be there. If he and Jason are the area, though, I'd love to take a workshop with them. If you hear anything about that from Jason or otherwise, please let me know, and I'll keep my eyes on Daniel schedule. Also, thanks for the information about Waikiki. Last year, one of my ukulele instrutors, Ka'ala Carmack, played there with his band, the J-Town Hui, and he's planning to go again this year if he's invited back. I don't play well enough yet to be included in the J-Town Hui, but I'm still hoping to attend the festival.

    At the NorCal Uke Fest, I'll be at or near the Kapalakiko I Ke Aloha booth for most of the day. Please stop by and say hello if you decide to come to the festival.

    Thanks, Gary. Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out. I had a few moments where I felt the fear of making a huge mistake and ruining it. Take care, and good luck on your next one.

    Hey, Gary, I haven`t had much chance to play my workshop uke, I`ve been traveling. I also still need to adjust the action a bit and file the frets a bit. A friend of mine is a cabinet maker and he recommended linseed or tung oil, I will probably just do that. I`m thinking of uploading a video when I have it in shape. Take care,

    Hey Gary,

    I'm doing well. My finger seems to be about ready to come out of that split it's been in, although it may be a few weeks before its flexibility returns. Thanks for asking.

    I haven't signed up yet for the Rick Turner class. Have you signed up? Do you know if there are still openings? Part of the problem for me is I have a few other commitments in October that overlap with the class, and I was also concerned about my finger being able to handle the delicacy of building. Also, I can't seem to decide which of the two ukuleles to build. In addition, I just dropped a deposit on a Mya-Moe 9atht e WCUF) and I'm saving up to pay off the balance in March. If there are still open spots, though, I may decide to do it anyway.

    I hope all is well.

    Actually, Gary, thank you! I was about to text you back that you'll probably learn more in those four days in class than I've learned in three years teaching myself. Then I thought,"hey wait a minute, that's not fair." so I signed up.
  10. Yeah, they have no idea about the pickup! That'll be a separate issue. Thanks.
