    I'd always go for vintage, but not museum pieces, I'm happy for them to have cracks and signs of use because then I don't feel like I have to baby them too much. They were designed to be played,...

    I have the medium fuse-on bag and use it a lot with my tenor gig bag. I don't find it overwhelms the case (or me!), but then I'm not riding a bike with it.

    I suspect I am sometimes guilty of over...

    But how many of those older people were playing the ukulele in primary school? Very few would be my guess.

    One of the reasons so many older people play the uke is that it is relatively easy and...

    Gotta say that this little exchange between Ubulele and Rllink is pretty much my favourite thing on UU EVER.

    Thanks chaps :)

    There's a Kanile'a tenor on Andy Eastwood's site, it's priced at £500 because it has a small crack.

    I recently bought James Hill's "Duets for One" and I'm really enjoying the arrangements. Currently obsessed with "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", it's an absolute hoot to play.

    A lot of popular songs started out as folk songs and don't have a traceable author, so they're not copyrighted (although subsequent arrangements may be). House of the Rising Sun is a case in point.

    I have one uke with a slotted headstock and I hate it, as soon as I get a chance I'm planning on trading it in for pretty much anything else (as long as it's got a flat headstock).

    Hey guys, it's been a while!

    Had a bit of time on my hands because I've just had surgery, the perfect opportunity to dip back into the seasons! However, I couldn't find my mic so the sound...

    This is such sad news.

    I have enjoyed many of Chief Noda's tabs, particularly his arrangement of "The Swan", which was the first low G piece I learned.

    Thank you for letting us know, he and...

    Congratulations!

    I've been kind of intrigued by Brukos for a while, but I haven't had a chance to try one in person and have been a bit put off by reports of them being very bright - interesting...

    'Magic Ukulele Waltz' and 'Music Box Waltz', both by Roy Smeck. They're more fingerstyle, but the Music Box Waltz in particular is just a joy to play (IMO!).

    In my experience the "weaving" happens naturally. I usually put the 4th string on first and the string end naturally points off to the right because of the angle of the knot, the end then gets...

    And thank you :)

    Thank you very much, Dave. Yes, the demon guitar is entirely to blame, I even dabbled a little in the truly dark arts of electric!

    My Moonbird is a tenor, I absolutely love it.
