    :agree:

    To an extent an extent problems do reduce after hours and hours of practice and the improvements in technique that you discover during that practice.

    Unless I’m mistaken fitbits are supposed to be worn on your non-dominant arm (so for a right handed player that would be on the left wrist / fretting hand). But if it works for you then that’s all...

    For those that haven’t heard of Pete’s Baby Baritone before it sounds fantastic, see: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7gicAwExzB4 . Definitely a ‘I want one of those’ type of Uke! Suddenly I can...

    I’d have thought so as well, but wonder about the shipping factors and who would sell for Pete too.

    In the original post Pete only mentions Baritones and above says he intends his Ukes to be for...

    No, you’re not alone, but most folk forget how they struggled at some point in the past. These days I put up and take down stands without thinking about it - literally years of practice helps - and...

    I’ve considered getting a Flea in the past but the visibility issue put me off, and they’re a bit more expensive here in the U.K. too so not a purchase I’d want to get wrong. It occurs to me that...

    I can’t say that I’ve taken what would be classed as big gambles but two that didn’t work-out for me come to mind, both are well thought of brands and it wouldn’t be fair to name them. The first one...

    So that the text doesn’t get lost I’ve captured it above and hope that that is acceptable to all (Bill tends to delete his posts, to him it’s a conversation not a record).

    If I understand correctly the OU is made of a hard plastic that has no or virtual no ductility. I’m note sure whether OU uses self tapping screws or not but IMHO putting a self tapping screw into...

    I refer you to #4 for details of Bill’s idea.

    I’d have thought a Soprano Outdoor Uke was the logical way forward. Buying a first act ($20?) as a stop gap probably isn’t money particularly well spent - ‘he who buys cheap buys twice’, etc. - so if...
