    Thank you Ms Bean, that’s great, that’ll keep me busy. I came across Abigail Flowers when I first got my baritone but I couldn’t remember her name so I’m grateful for that prompt. I really love her...

    Is that the late Mike Lynch of Youtube? I haven’t seen those books, where do you get them?

    When I play the baritone like a concert it still sounds nice but it doesn’t sound right with my voice when I sing along.

    Ms Bean do you have a few top favourite songs for the baritone?

    I still feel like a total beginner sometimes where I flit from one song to another, memorise it for a day or two then get...

    I got my first uke (a concert) last spring then a baritone at Christmas. It’s helped me a lot having to relearn chords. I’ve realised before I was playing single chords and thinking hard about...

    Christian. Your private message is inappropriate and fortunately I am strong enough that I didn’t react badly to it but I could have quite easily, especially the last sentence.

    The fact is that...

    Im glad you said they have a lot of stretch. I dont have your experience so wasnt sure if I had strung them correctly and mine are the same although they are going out of tune a little less each time...

    Sorry but I don’t agree. In my scenario the bees are invisible, they stick to your clothing and every time I go out I am at risk of bringing them back into my home to vulnerable members of my family...

    I agree, its hard to evaluate risk with an unknown. I have never been stung by a bee so I dont know if I have an allergy to them. For me its the same thing.

    This is a great reminder to us newbies to try and stop watching our fingers :)

    I find bad habits so much easier to acquire than good habits (hides the leftover Christmas biscuits)

    My Worth Browns arrived today.

    I’ve only been playing since May and had never changed a string before but after watching a dozen YouTube videos managed to swap them all over!

    They sound lovely...

    So they solve the sound problem but feel a bit weird? I’m hoping I can get used to that! Now I’m off to research nut files ;)

    I’ve ordered some Worth Browns too so it’ll be interesting to hear how you compare the two when you get yours (although for tenor I know)

    You must be happy just to be rid of those wound strings....

    Oh great, I am eagerly awaiting your update!

    My partner asked me today if now I have a baritone I will be selling my concert. No words were needed, just the look on my face :D

    If only our music shops were open!

    I think I’ve found the solution. I’ll buy Worth’s and LW and then I’ll have to get another baritone uke :D

    Thank you. I do like a warmer sound..... gosh I think I'm over-thinking all of this!!

    That widening of the slot to fit new strings seems a bit daunting to me, truth be told. My partner is pretty handy so maybe I'll sit him down in front of some youtube videos!

    I love stream of consciousness posts. Can you do a regular slot Mike?!

    Does anyone have any thoughts about Worth Browns versus Living Water? I seem to have narrowed my search down to these two.

    Please let me know how you get on. I received a Kala baritone for Christmas and I’m not keen on the wound strings. It sounds like someone rubbing dry hands together when I strum!
