    I think you are getting it but you’re also getting a little confused.

    Easiest is to play the same chord shapes on the Baritone and accept that you’re playing the melody and the associated chord...

    Yes. You will probably learn more by composing things yourself rather than following a book. Remember that often chord fragments/double stops are sufficient to give the flavour. No need for the full...

    The THR5A has a single clean electric guitar channel and a few different acoustic channels designed to simulate different types of mic set up in front of the instrument. It is the one to buy if you...

    Walmart are very much still in the UK !! They are in the process of merging Asda with Sainsbury’s if the Govt allow it. Likely part of a Walmart strategy to exit the UK over time.

    Thanks for this information as I hadn’t realised Omega had closed. I used them a few times over the years so sorry to hear they have gone.

    Hi EDW,

    I bow to your superior knowledge.

    It is a shame that my idea is not correct. I like things to be logical and so it appealed to me as I suspect it did to the OP for the same reason.

    These are good questions to which I don’t know the answer but they have always puzzled me too.

    Could it be that ties only extend between two different beats (either within the same measure or...

    Hi there,

    FYI E minor is the first chord one learns in standard tuning on the guitar. It is the easiest to finger, much like C Major or A minor on the uke. Indeed it is formed just like the uke A...

    Why not try ADGA and play the same shapes as the middle 4 strings of the guitar. Just a thought.

    Ofcourse it all depends on string materials and gauges but as a broad brush comment I would say a baritone tuned DGBE has tension closer to B flat tuning on a tenor rather than C tuning. HTH

    Foam padded stand for five ukes in excellent unmarked condition. Folds for storage. Ukes not included in the sale. A great product which usually sells out very quickly when the shops eventually get...
  16. D’Addario Planet Waves Ukulele Capo. Top quality. Never used. UK Sale

    Bought new by me but never used. Very small, light and unobtrusive when attached to the fretboard. Top quality product.

    Bump. Nine ukes sold, just this one to go. Price reduced to £330. Especially nice strung low G due to its slightly smaller and thus less boomy body. A beautiful instrument in as new, hardly played...

    Absolutely keep working on memorising the fretboard patterns. We all need to do that as much as possible.

    It’s just that modes are so badly taught that I decided to try and help. You only...

    Forget Dorian, Phrygian, Aeolian and Locrian for now. Not because they are particularly any more complicated (well Locrian is but it’s better to forget that mode altogether) but just because it is...

    Maybe to save you some time I will get you started.

    The major chords in C Ionian are C, F & G. We all know what various progressions sound like with these three chords resolving back to C Major.

    Hi again,

    The key to understanding modes is to focus on the chords generated by a particular mode rather than the mode itself. Yes you have to learn the mode patterns around the fretboard but that...

    If she is able to make a barre across at least three strings then consider an open tuning. There are several options but particularly easy is tuning the g string up to A so that the four open strings...
