    As a beginner and ever since the most useful thing that I do is to play with others. Seek out other players, listen to them, join in with them, be inspired by them and receive motivation from the...

    Congratulations, from what I’ve read over time here I don’t think that you’ll be disappointed. I’ve updated my earlier post with some additional detail that might help someone else in a similar...

    Your budget seems simply too low to me and at that price you’re quite likely to end up with a Ukulele shaped object rather than something that will serve you well. So, IMHO, you need to have a...

    I suspect that I don’t understand something about the repair quite well enough in that a very quick acting (literally in seconds) type of glue has been used. The advantages of self wicking are clear...

    @ p dsorlien, thanks for sharing.

    It would be interesting to understand how the neck angle got a little out such that you required such a tall saddle.

    Lovely looking instrument.

    I’d like to know more about Nylon strings and did do some research a little while back on them. The better Nylon Strings aren’t necessary much cheaper than Fluorocarbon so don’t buy on price. IIRC Dr...

    Just a player’s observation on fret height. Since taking up the Ukulele I’ve had say approaching twenty Ukuleles through my hands, nothing particularly expensive, kept just a few and the rest have...

    I’ve just been listening to the video in the OP and then went off to hunt for some more from Wilfried. What a lovely way to round off Christmas Day!

    Let me be amongst the first to congratulate you. I hope that your new instrument brings you years of joy. A concert is a nice size to play and to learn more on, guess you’ll be posting videos on the...

    That’s a tough call. I almost exclusively play Soprano but occasionally I play Concerts too - at one point I pretty much only played Concert scale Ukes. I have traditional and pineapple shaped...

    Yep, I thought it a really good thread too. I love the Soprano size, it has it’s weaknesses but it also has so much that’s good about it too. Some folk do like to use the ‘D’ tuning on them and the...

    That sounds like the voice of reason to me. At the end of the day any item is only worth what the current market will pay for it and you have two options: wait for a more favourable market or accept...

    For a price pretty much most things can be repaired and/or restored but whether it makes economic sense is another matter. The OP doesn’t say what model of Leolani he has got but I doubt that it is...

    Kypher’s suggest got me thinking. If books with just the chords in as written for piano would do the job then to an extent piano music is where you should be looking. You add your own chord boxes if...

    I too prefer twelve frets to the body and I also suspect that fourteen is more about show and marketing than anything much else (bigger is almost always perceived as better).
