    I'm glad it works for you, Chillywilly. I'll post photographed (jpeg) copies of "spicier" chord sheets in 'Bb' and in 'G' in the appropriate section of the forum. The two are similar to each other,...

    I've had a bit of time on my hands (who hasn't, these days?) so I wrote out the rest of the song in the simplified style of the E-chord arrangement

    If the gap has stabilized like that, in "normal" conditions of temperature and humidity, I would agree that attempts to close the gap, using artificially high humidity, run the risk (a very high...

    If you take off the string tension, I would not expect the body to become flat again. It is all quite normal, if only slight.

    I've just paid the VIP subscription for twelve months. It cost me GB£38.42 - that's less than .75p a week. I don't consider that too much to pay.

    YMMV

    1920s The Gibson

    Today is bright and sunny so I took The Gibson outside. I think of it as "Frank's Gibson" because scratched on the back is, "I Love You, Frank" and the date "Feb 26th 1928". To me that gives the uke...

    IMHO that is not just cosmetic damage. It looks as though the uke has had a hefty wallop. There is no way to tell how this might affect the structural integrity, but I would advise you to avoid this...
