    Something to consider...

    Just checking, but, what size is your uke? If you're playing a soprano and it's not loud enough, maybe you don't need a resonator, maybe you just need a tenor--they do tend to be louder.

    Grab each string at the twelfth fret and give it a good stretch. Keep tuning and retuning it a few times, the strings should stretch out considerably. Did you loop any of the string back into the...

    I posted the 4-neck-guitar guy as an example of a guy who plays lots of notes just for the sake of playing lots of notes. Once you get past the glam, did that guy's solo really have that much to say...

    I love that prelude and have had it half-learned for a while now... I'm tempted to finally tab it out and post it. Keep an eye out, I'll put it up if I can find some spare time.

    Number 2 is my main reason. I use the G, C, and even fretted notes on the E string to make drone or "bass" notes in my fingerstyle playing. It helps fill out the sound nicely, especially if you can...
