    I have a low g on uke. Have an idea of a particular Travis pick. I've tried a couple but they don't seem quite right. I've tried 42,31 and 432,41,32 ( just the string numbers).
    Thanks
  2. Fingerpicking pattern for Jolene?

    Anyone have one? I've only found strumming patterns. I've only found picking for guitar.
    Thanks

    Gee, when I think earworms I think of Call Me Maybe by Carly Jepson, or Let It Go from Frozen

    Linda's always on a loop with me. Incredible voice, it's awful that she can no longer sing due to Parkinson's. I've never heard another singer who can absolutely kill it in so many genres: country,...

    The only ones I really play are my two concerts. I'll occasionally pull the soprano. Have handmade banjo ukes with concert and soprano necks that I pull sometimes. My Mainland concert fits my hands...

    Yeah, bad practice day. Can't even get my fingers going through songs I know well. I'll try back in awhile or just run thru Uncle Rods which is good for just getting transition memory while you watch...

    I know huh? I have about 20 of them to give away. Can't quite throw them in the landfill and the library doesn't take paperbacks. Maybe you have a freecycle.org in your area?

    I don't know if it's just the grain pattern, but one looks wider than the other.
    I do like the dark wood too. They're both beautiful.
    I just wish they'd make their concert with a 15" scale. I know...

    Nice! If you don't like reentrant after using awhile (they come in handy jamming with other people though more have low g now), just throw on a low g. I have one on my soprano and like it just fine....

    Didn't know if they worked the same. Sounds like similar but not quite. Thanks for clarifying. Getting that neck break angle on those little banjo ukes I make drives me crazy.

    Lucky you! If I could get one with a 15" scale neck I'd put my name in. With my short arthritic fingers the 16" is a bit too much of a stretch. Yes, I've tried every stretch I can think of and I'm...

    For lower end things I've only seen any kind of adjustable rods on banjo ukes (around $100), and with nylon strings I've had some builders say just use anchor bolts if you're building something cheap...

    It's beautiful. I really like the finish. Give it some better strings though. Aquilas are a step up from these. I got those strings on a cheapy uke once, and they were all cut off pretty quick.

    I don't really like the look of it, but since I love the feel of my Mainland uke in my hand I can overlook it.

    Combination strum and fingerpick? Like the extra lyrics. I remember the song from the TV show Third Watch.

    4 vs 5 string-- what's the tuning called? GCEA is reentrant. gCEA is linear. What do you call it on a 5 string uke as gGCEA? I like to fingerpick a...

    Yeah that's the hard part for me is trying to strum etc and being irritated at myself for not being "perfect." Kids can whale away and keep going
