    Welcome! I did the same thing as your friend: when my bud was in the hospital doing chemo, I knew he couldn’t play guitar so I got him a long-neck soprano with a low G to keep him occupied and give...

    The Ukulele Site has sales sometimes. Just sign up for their mailing list and follow them on whatever social media you prefer (if any) to get alerted when they do.

    And to answer your other...
  3. I do a little of everything, but I’m most...

    I do a little of everything, but I’m most satisfied when I can weave the melody into a rhythm - usually strumming, but sometimes a more staccato beat for jazzy stuff.
  4. I was thinking “I played with that system and...

    I was thinking “I played with that system and really liked it,” but then saw that the video you linked to was the first night I played it. It is a lot of fun and the options really open up when you...
  5. I have three Ponos and don’t have that problem...

    I have three Ponos and don’t have that problem but I don’t think I’ve ever pulled a string off the fretboard. I’ve done it in the past on guitars with really narrow necks, but can’t remember how long...

    There was a piece written about his playing origins in the second Ukulele Special from Fretboard Journal. It’s worth picking up.

    This is solid advice. Just telling them what you want (as cheap as possible but still good-sounding) and letting them come up with a plan could save quite a bit since you aren’t handcuffing them to...
  8. It makes a sound when it moves against my short...

    It makes a sound when it moves against my short when I’m recording. It’s super distracting to me and I have to remain as still as possible which is uncomfortable (and boring) so I opt for gloss...

    They’re remarkably similar. When I got it, I wondered if it was from the same manufacturer. It’s good stuff.

    I’m not good enough to warrant the kind of feedback that would warrant that kind of cost.

    What I mean is, at this point, just about anyone would be able to tell me I need to learn scales and...

    Cedar is usually warmer than spruce.

    I always opt for gloss bodies and satin necks when possible. If it’s not, just gloss. I can’t stand the sound of satin finishes against my shirts, especially...
  12. Is this the generation with a satin neck?

    Is this the generation with a satin neck?
  13. I don’t know if you can change the thread title,...

    I don’t know if you can change the thread title, but you could throw a disclaimer in bold at the top of the first post clarifying the typo. :-)
  14. Pretty stoked!

    Pretty stoked!

    I’m moving to Uke Logics for all my ukes as the strings need changed. Joel’s attention to detail when it comes to strings as phenomenal and I want him to succeed (and they’re pink). I’m glad to see...

    Welcome! I love visiting Chicago! Great food and there’s always Chicago Music Exchange (though, last time I went, they only had four ukes). The people are nice, the architecture is cool, and you’ve...

    He’s not a fan of incorrect capitalization in the name.

    I tried, but it was flagged as spam. If you go to Halleonard.com you can search “Metallica ukulele,” AC/DC Ukulele,” etc. They’ve got a lot of interesting books on that site.

    There are books. I have Metallica, AC/DC, Nirvana, etc from Hal Leonard.

    This is how I play it:
    https://youtu.be/IEQMt7miCRs

    I got it from a jazz guitar book and just cut off the bottom two strings. Sometimes that works out, sometimes it doesn’t. ;-)

    I play “It’s Only a Paper Moon.” It gets me around the neck, the chords are intricate enough to catch any potential snags, and I know how it should sound so a flat uke will identify itself quickly.

    They briefly cover the golpe method in Craig and Sarah’s course on ArtistWorks in a structured manner, but it isn’t a whole course dedicated to it - more like how you can use it to further express...

    I love slotted headstocks and armrests, so that’s what I would go with. Prettier Kia doesn’t mean better-sounding koa.

    I write my arrangements on my iPad and record myself practicing to try to get good takes where things are clean. I almost never get it and I usually delete the video, but I found that recording...
