    When I started this thread, it was with the assumption that most beginners would naturally gravitate toward learning to play a tune they already knew. Probably a tune that they had heard many times...

    Yeah! Another sitting on the porch Uke player. We are a special breed. Sunrise is a great time to be on the porch playing, but then again, so is sunset. We're having a new home built, and I will...

    Exactly! Sometimes I wonder if the tune was chorded by an actual human, or maybe just some software that didn't "hear" the chords right when running the tune through its algorithms. It's not...

    Well, that should be encouraging to anyone out there who thinks learning to play is too great a challenge.

    A cut piece or filler just isn't going to look right. Use a wider purfling so it simply looks like the luthier choice for dressing up the Uke.

    I have a Cordoba 15CFM. I bought it on a whim, due to the very low price, and pretty red color. :p It's a playable Uke. There is nothing exceptional about it. The tone is lack luster, and the...

    Sound ports confuse me. If they were universally beneficial, then all makers would use them, right? So, when are they useful, and when are they detrimental? Does the port make the Uke sound better...

    I realize that this thread is primarily about size. But, Ukuleles seem to come in all sorts of sizes. So, I question the value of identifying the instrument that way. For me, it's all about...

    If the thin spot on the paint bothers you, just slap on a sticker you like! It's good to have a knockaround, junker Uke that can go anywhere without a care. You can literally throw it in the back...

    Oops! Curiosity took me over to Amazon to see for myself what that "fugly" Uke looked like. Well, I see a mistake in the advertising. The Amazon lead in page says "Concert" but in the description...

    IMHO the Ukulele sounds best at or under the 7th fret. And since I play Concert size most of the time, my fat fingers work best between the lower frets. They become unmercifully squeezed above the...

    I have a critical ear when it comes to pitch. But, unfortunately, I have a very tentative familiarity with pitch when I'm doing the singing. I hear myself wandering off, out of tune, and very often...
