    When I was a kid I got to live in Hawaii for a couple years and a friend showed me how to play a couple chords. Unfortunately, I was too into metal and trying to seem cool to admit that there was a...

    The Kala KA-ASOV-T is a a real gem. People overlook it because it doesn’t cost as much as the Elite series and isn’t made from koa, but it’s all solid, lightweight, resonant, lively, and easy to...

    You may want to pick up one of the Ukulele Fake Books because they’ve got a good bit of variety in the songs offered and there’s standard notation so you can pull out the melody (as well as chord...

    I definitely empathize. While I don’t think I have anything beyond a low-level anxiety, Covid did a number on me and I finally called it and booked an appointment with a therapist. This last year has...

    This Pono is my favorite tenor that I own (my favorite soprano that I own is also a Pono) but found when recording that it can really overpower my mic that had been set up previously to work with my...

    The Wind Beneath My Wings

    Aloha! Please enjoy my arrangement of Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings.” I’ve always liked the melody and... soaring (see what I did there?) chorus, but I’m not a super huge fan of the lyrics....

    I use a Pilot Metro most of the time. Pilot also has disposable fountain pens that I’m trying out to see how often I switch colors (turns out it’s pretty often to help keep my planner organized). I...

    I’ve had mine get lopped off and when I edit it and paste the content (copied), it went through fine. It only stung the first few dozen times before I learned my lesson to copy before submitting. ;-)

    Just wanted to clarify that FMIC handles the marketing and distribution of Gretsch instruments and that Fred Gretsch III is still the owner.

    If it were me, I’d get a silver series soprano and call it good. I’m not a fan of satin finishes in general (most of them make too much noise when recording for my taste) and KoAloha makes one of my...

    My wife’s in a high-risk category so we’re avoiding just about everything until a vaccine comes out. I love the ukulele and ukulele players, but not as much as I love my best friend. ;-)

    When it comes to tenors, I prefer Kamaka. Sopranos and concerts are more of a debate, though. KoAloha’s bracing, tone, and volume seem particularly well-fitted to the soprano and concert sizes.

    Agreed. If it doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work. Send it back, get a refund (or store credit), and try again with a different company/model.
