    Bought one last week. DGBE tuning. And it’s great - a different sounding instrument with almost no learning curve attached from the ukulele. Or looking at it another way, another key for free.

    I’ve been playing for 5 months, and my UAS is fairly severe. But there’s hope…I’ve got what feels like an ideal soprano for me, and a really nice, and notably distinct, pineapple soprano. I’m feeling...

    I bought a cheap ukulele on a whim about 5 months ago after talking to a friend about musical instruments. It somehow really clicked, which had not quite happened with a musical instrument before,...

    My 80 point VTAB concert gets played quite often. First ukulele I bought after the cheapo one I bought to try it out. I now have it tuned to low G (it always had a bassy tone, so thought I would...

    If it helps, the first time I changed strings on a tie bar (rather than slotted) bridge, I screwed up two G strings in a row, leaving me with two partial sets. I have the hang of it *now*, but plenty...

    Hi there! You’re three months further in than me, but I made the same start with a Donner. Including that, I now have six ukes in various sizes, though nothing especially posh - though there are a...

    Thanks - I've just bought a Noah pineapple, spruce top and mahogany body, with sunburst finish. It's a little bit messy, but I knew that going in (I saw a photo), and nothing that affects my...

    Thanks Ukantor - a barred Eb is such a good idea for me since I find it awkward to get to quickly. Odd that I never thought of it by myself considering I prefer to play the D chord 2225.

    As a beginner, I am still experimenting to find size preferences. I thought it was the tenor for me when I first tried after soprano and concert, but when I bought a decent soprano, I found it really...

    I'm about three and a half months into playing and I have 5.

    The first was a cheapo soprano I bought to see if I liked playing. I found I did, but it wasn't fit for purpose. So I picked up a VTAB...

    Bb and B really bug me if I need them quickly. D often ends up buzzing if I am not careful, depending on the ukulele; I actually prefer it as a 2225 barred chord.

    I have some exercises to do for...

    Every day from 30 to 90 minutes. I only started just over 3 months ago, so I find it really exciting still. Most often I use my Cort soprano or Snail tenor, depending on mood. When the soprano first...

    5. Which considering I have only been playing for 3 and a half months suggests a problem. In my defence, the first rubbish cheapo does not count, right, even if I included in the five. I probably...
