    The market for steel-string uke lessons is probably very small. I can't imagine anyone making a living catering just to those players.

    If that's the style you're interested in, you'd probably do...

    If you get a good one they work fine. I had a Digitech Drop that tracked SUPER WELL.

    The problem is that when you detune nylon strings down an octave they sound like rubber bands. Definitely gets...

    Yes, I usually do a couple workshops a year. George Kahumoku Jr.'s Slack Key and 'Ukulele Workshop is the big one.
  4. Left Hand Technique For ʻUkulele: A Guide to Fretting and Fingering - Ebook

    Today I'm releasing my newest ebook, Left Hand Technique For ʻUkulele. It's a 55+ page guide to improving your fretting hand technique.

    I don't normally toot my own horn, but I'm very proud about...

    The Ukulele Way.

    Beyond that you should probably look into some of the fabulous instruction for other instruments available like The Advancing Guitarist and The Groove Workshop.

    Online, I'd start with The Ukulele Way. It's not personal, but it's great and James Hill is the best uke teacher I know of. The course is well paced and perfect for your interest in chord melody and...

    He or she who knows how to manipulate the system will appear first in search results. What you are seeing on Google or Youtube is a listing of people's skill at making the algorithm happy, ranked...

    Heard of plastic bottle bricks/Ecobricks? https://www.ecobricks.org/how/

    It's not a solution for civilization's overuse of plastic, but from a simply practical household standpoint it's a great...

    It depends.

    But I'm mostly with Baz on this one. That said, he or she who plays and operates his or her gear better will sound best at the end of the day - regardless of how much the uke costs.

    This is a REALLY good video on this subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6E-HNioxHk. (Here's the first lesson if the "mobility jumps" are confusing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKKgb9X-Bjg.)...

    Probably going to be easiest to completely remove the jack and fish it to the soundhole to tighten the nut by hand. You might have to pull the jack further out of the uke to undo the outer screw (it...

    Can't say I've stayed up to date on uke releases this year... *Yawn*

    But I'd like to commend Line 6 and their HX Stomp, which won an award this year. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best compact...

    This.

    Search "strings" and you will find, literally, thousands of posts on strings for all styles and instruments.

    I have a lot to say about this. None of which is probably appreciated. So I will just point out some simple math.

    $140 will buy you:

    -Two to four (or more) private lessons from any number of...

    Great tips here, but brainy. Music is about listening. In most cases, I believe it's way more useful to practice hearing what sounds good than knowing the "right notes".

    I say this because Western...

    No kidding! I never noticed that until now. Less intuitive if you don't have the 3rd fret marked, but a good teaching tip for me to file in the back of my head!

    IMO, Musescore would probably look better than this. It's really a no-brainer program if you want great-looking transcriptions without the Sibelius price tag.

    Ditch all your effects and pedals for troubleshooting. There could be any number of things working against you with a big chain like that.

    The Venue by itself should net you a decent sound....

    The A and E are similar to Worth CH. The C and low-G are significantly heavier (see my video above).

    I think I saw that the calculator is not working right for strings and that they credit back the difference. Might be worth an email to them.

    I was trying out the heavy tension. But I ended up frankensteining it a bit with the low-tension C and switching to my standard Savarez KF95 low-G. This configuration is very similar to the Worth...

    Joel sent me some to try out. He had recipes for a normal tension and high tension set with both wound/unwound variants. I imagine he's collecting feedback and will be adding more sets as he goes....

    Or something. It's written by some Sean guy. I'm mostly wondering how Dom is involved. Somehow I can't see him putting something like this on his site: https://www.beginnerukuleles.com/pink-ukulele/.

    Dominator Uke Tabs Moved?

    Cleaning up some links on my site and noticed that Dom's epic tab resource is now redirecting to beginnerukulele.com. Can't imagine Dominic is involved with an operation with such thin content.
