    I rotate a couple just because of size. I really should keep a reentrant uke, but I bounce between two concerts and one soprano, all strung low g. Even on the soprano I like the low g.

    I got a mandolin case as well, but I flip the bridge down anyway. Since I have teeny, tinny pencil marks, it's easy to flip back up and it a really quick tune.

    Congratulations! Hard to take that first step. I'm still trying to memorize even a simple song well enough to do it (I pick not strum).

    Hey that looks like fun. Did you ever try any of the fretboard illusions? I think that came up once.

    I don't think I'd do it even though I've managed to get 300 autographs from basketball players over the years. Those guys used to sign a lot, but not so much anymore. I'd never buy one though. I...

    I sent an envelope with tracking about 20 miles and it still hasn't arrived after almost a month. Sucked into the USPS vortex never to be seen again. I had to have a bunch of people cancel and...

    It must be a practice thing. I've tried picks a couple of times, but it's like they're getting stuck between the strings. I guess I've just been using long fingernails as picks. Short nails on fret...

    His instruments are beautiful. I always wished I could afford one.
    Too bad he's no longer going to build, but things in life change.

    I wouldn't think it would matter since it's been bouncing around in that UPS truck. They're not temperature controlled. Again, I'm guessing but I never would have thought to do that

    This is how I play it. To me it sounds the same, though I don't have a trained ear. Works for how my tiny fingers do (and don't) bend.
