    Thank you.

    I was only able to purchase the 2003 hardcover edition in "good" used condition (new was not an option), but I'm sure it will get plenty of use since I'm presently unable to play my...

    I found "the Ukulele: A Visual History" by Jim Beloff on Amazon.com

    If this is the book you are referencing, let me know and I'll grab it. ;-)

    I have books pertaining to guitars and cigar box guitars which feature countless photos of those instruments with brief descriptions, but I have yet to find one pertaining to ukuleles.

    I'd love to...

    Wanted: Ukulele Product Promo Posters

    This may seem like an odd request, but I'm looking to acquire ukulele promo posters ranging in size from 12" x 18" to 22" x 28".

    I have several poster frames on my walls in which I like to display...

    I greatly appreciate everyones feedback. I misunderstood to whom the product was being promoted (I'm still happy to see individuals such as Aldrine making that information available to us consumers)....

    Now that I think about it, I suppose I could Bar the 2nd Fret with my index finger and use my middle finger to play Fret 3 on String 1 with my middle finger. :p

    It just seems as though the fingering for some chords (such as the D7 chord) might be less challenging if I played the ukulele properly. To achieve the D7 chord, I must place my fingers as follows:

    I've never played a string instrument prior to purchasing my first ukulele a little over a year ago, so playing a right-handed ukulele upside down is all I know. I have since re-strung at least a...

    Exactly my point... If people don't have anything nice to say, maybe they should say nothing.

    I play when asked to play. It's not like I trap people and force them to listen. lol

    I recently purcased Worth Clear CL Light strings from MIM and love them.

    Just a little side note: The auction title stated "2 Sets", yet when opening the pack, there was only one set. What I...

    They are all excellent suggestions, but if I invested that much effort into my playing simply to please others, I'd likely despise playing.
