    I really didn't mean for it to have and anti Christmas vibe, or an anti Christian vibe. It was just a hard night. Sometimes it is just a hard night. It wasn't meant to be super serious. I was...

    I am a Christian, I'm a pretty regular church goer, and I like Christmas, but Christmas music often times seem so contrived. I've never liked Christmas music. But I've gotten just piles of popular...

    If it were only that easy. It seems that there is no way for me to avoid them in the next couple of months. I will try though.

    I prefer to mic both myself and the uke. I think that it sounds better. But that just doesn't always work, like you said, you can't compete. I have one uke with a MiSi installed and when all else...

    Rough night.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Christmas holidays but I just hate playing and singing holiday songs. Anyone else think that they are just all goofy and hard to play?

    I would take the screw out and stick a toothpick dipped in wood glue into the hole. Let it dry, cut it off with an exacto knife so that it is flush. Maybe drill a new pilot hole. Then put the screw...

    Not very often. I let them go longer than I should. The above advise is all really good. I'm just chiming in to note that nothing catastrophic is going to happen if you let them go a little longer...

    I wonder why and how they target ukulele players? It can't be random, I mean you don't just blanket the populous in the hopes of landing on a ukulele player who actually does gigs. They have to be...

    Sometimes things are hard enough without being the odd duck. As far a bias, you find that even in the ukulele world. I've played in a few groups and gone to a few festivals where it was explicitly...

    Guitar Center is advertising the same uke right now for $39.95 without the sticker. This isn't a high dollar ukulele if someone wants one that bad.
