    The video I posted earlier of Pure Heart was a re-union of the band Jake planned with in the late 90's. Jake has played in bands and has jammed with other musicians. I kinda doubt he would be...

    I would first make sure you can install Graphtech Ratio tuners down the road. I have no experience in shortening a standard headstock, although I did mod an inline tuner headstock. I’d figure out...

    When we went to Kauai a couple of years ago, I tried a number of them at their shop and didn’t care for any. They look nice, but they seem a little heavy and muted, and they are not cheap. Their...

    Actually fishing line/leader pounds is the break testing of the line. A 40lb test can withstand 10lb more before it breaks than 30lb test. Diameter in fishing is important because the thinner the...

    From what I’ve read on fishing forums and info from the Seaguar site, Pink Label appears to be the same as Red Label. If this is true, Red Label is what Fred Shields uses on his ukuleles. I don’t...

    The Anderson-Group link that Jan D posted looks like a good place to start.

    I would think that you will want to take multiple pictures of each ukulele, along with serial numbers, date of mfg, if...

    That is correct, 2010, which is an F chord shape on a tenor ukulele, is a C on a baritone.

    You actually have a quick and dirty key on your baritone (or linear tenor). I used this going from...

    This is a great response. I am guilty of playing open/semi-open chords, but if you barre the 5 basic chord shapes it doesn’t matter what the starting point (tuning) that you choose. Playing a C or...

    But the 3rd fret on the first string on a guitar, and a baritone, is not a C, it is a G. I played guitar for decades before I went to the ukulele. I was thrilled the chord shapes were the same,...

    You are correct, but there are multiple chord shapes for the same chord. Technically if you play a D chord (tuned to Bb) as 2225 is will be the same exact sound as a C (tuned to C) played 0003. If...

    Chord shapes are the same as a guitar. A G chord is 320003. Since you don’t have strings 5 and 6 on a baritone, you just play the strings that are there... 0003. If you want you can pretend the...

    This works and it is how I play if I am playing solo and not with others. Basically you are played by shapes and the key is not relevant. It is just like CliveyG’s YouTube comparison video. The...

    Yes. If you tune to B, a C chord is played 1114. If you tune to Bb to play a C chord you use a D shape, (2220), or 2225 if you want to understand the theory. For every half step lower you need to...

    Good move. My only advice is to get the ukulele setup to your preferences. If you want lower action than “standard” (which can be anywhere from 2.5mm to 3mm at 12th) then you need it lowered. It...

    Like everyone else, you need to do a setup, and maybe change the strings. Basically you need to lower the strings, especially at the nut (probably the saddle also) to a height that makes it easy to...

    I have found “most” tenors sound better tuned to Bb. The only downside is playing with others that are tuned to C. Transposing is a pain in real time, but you can use a capo.
