    I think one’s need for a teacher depends on his/her learning purpose. If it is to become a professional musician or at least play in a band, then he/she should take some lessons. If it is just to...

    I don’t usually judge writers’ or musicians’ lives. I was talking about his works and his stated opinions. His life was his life, interesting, maybe, but not important to my interest or admiration...

    I simply could not disagree more. I’ve enjoyed reading many of his works for a long time, and I have great respect for his opinions and the down to earth way he stated them.

    Fingerstyle sounds better with accompaniment, but some books have two or three chords per measure.

    I’m an old brass man — no chords unless one plays with someone else. I also play flute and a...

    I was findin’ that I couldn’t seem to find tenor guitar music that I wanted. But, much to my embarrassment, I suddenly realized, checked and found out that I can play baritone uke music on my TG, so...

    I usually take mine out when playing a banjo, if the pickin’ don’t sound right. The tenor guitars and baritone uke sound better, so I just leave ‘em in. I have a button to push (for “music”), and...

    Well, I finally got around to tuning my new BR T60 to DGBE. CGDA just wasn’t working for me. I couldn’t find much music to play with it, except for Tenor banjo stuff which has way too many chords...

    I agree with your post, but if one is looking for a specific instrument the store may not carry them. I have bought instruments on line for just that reason. Good music stores are not always just...

    I heartily agree that Elderly is great! They did me a very big favor with one of my banjos. Their shipping is high, it’s true, but I use them anyway.

    I highly recommend them. :old:

    I had an Ohana 6 string and didn’t care for it, so I traded it in on a very nice lookin’ Kala 8 string tenor. I don’t play the Kala much though. I’m mostly a finger picker and don’t care to use it...

    I use picks sometimes, but I think I enjoy fingers better. Especially if I’m just noodling some stuff by ear. I use picks under .050 mm like “Ukulele for Dummies” suggests. I mostly use Dunlop...

    Actually, I don’t know what a GCEA baritone is or how to tune it an octave lower than anything. A baritone ukulele is tuned to Lo D GBE, and that’s why it’s a baritone Uke. I suppose one can tune it...
