    I find the assistance of a person who can tell when I’m on or off key invaluable. In private I sing off key and don’t always know it, and so what. But if I’m going to sing in public I get my husband...

    A solution for the binding issue: many print shops will, for a nominal fee (I’ve had it done for $6 or so) cut off the glued spine and spiral bind books for you. I also have them laminate the cover...

    I have no advice about the chord changing devices. I’ve never used or seen one in person. I do know someone who took up slide guitar when he was having hand problems.

    I generally dislike it, but I could be persuaded to overlook it if a uke sounded good and the price was right. Whereas there are some laser-etched designs that I would be unable to make myself appear...

    Yeah, the book I suggested is definitely old time in that sense, and has Shady Grove in it (which doesn’t help op I know, since he’s doing that one already) but as for any of the other songs being...

    Because I’m not sure what “modal” is, I’m not entirely sure this will be what you want, but what about “All the Good Times Have Past and Gone”? If that’s the kind of thing you’re looking for, the...

    I used a command hook on my son’s uke instead of a strap button. I think I got instructions from Bernadette Teaches Music on YouTube. It works well enough. He has a pretty cheap basic uke. I confess...

    Does anyone have beginner learn-to-play book suggestions, for either adults or kids? Something that has a cd would be best, I think, so that no Internet access is required. I find some sort of audio...

    Well, I would not probably donate my time. I was just engaging the previous player in their thought experiment about what they would do. I’m still pretty much on a beginner level and could only help...
