    I'm already scheduled for two other Zooms at the same time tonight (what is it about Thursdays?) but I greatly appreciate the songbook. Thanks!

    Yep, I just did :cool::smileybounce:

    I used to be amazed at people who don't even try to memorize songs. If I always needed tab, I would give up ukulele. Where's the fun in it? How can you sing a song from the heart if you don't know...

    About the least interesting thing to look at on a uke is the strap button. I'd go for something that matches the strap so the button is as close to invisible as it can get. Wood or dull bronze for...

    Good question. I always credit the songwriter. When I see a chord chart that says, for example, "I've Got You Under My Skin by Frank Sinatra" I want to slap somebody. And yet... I've never heard...

    Thanks for the help with Zoom audio settings, kohanmike.

    But why use Zoom to record video? Zoom is for live streaming; it is necessarily limited by the speed of your internet connection. You'll...

    Those are all good brands. Buy from one of the above-mentioned dealers who do setups and you'll be happy, no matter which model you choose.

    My Fluke has a plastic fretboard and my Firefly has a wooden one. In terms of playability I don't notice much difference. Not enough that I would spend the money to retro-fit. If the Fluke was my...

    Looks like the top line has two vocal parts: Melody and low harmony. Typically (but not always) the vocalist singing the higher-pitched notes is the one carrying the melody.
