    A tale of woe and teeth gnashing from our protagonist, a miserable soul. Recorded this one in the Seasons on ukulele some weeks back, restricted to just two chords per the hosts' rules. This is how...

    About three years ago I bought my first ukulele and parted ways with the guitar.......sold them all and didn't look back. Until last week when I tracked down this Gibson Hummingbird Vintage. I...

    The Wind Cries Mary

    No sir, no blazing, melodic solo here........just a much simplified version of one of Mr Hendrix's most haunting songs. While not specifically about them, the lyrics do mention a queen and king. ...

    Well this one certainly seemed appropriate.......Long Island, Billy Joel and such. Sure is a tough one. Don't reckon I'll ever be happy with my effort. I'll blame it on being from Texas and not...

    Seems to me since this is the Singing sub-forum perhaps we should have a thread for singing performances, with ukulele accompaniment of course. But singing, you know? Not about your chops on the...

    I play on some old, vintage ukuleles and some newer modern builds as well and have found that, for my ears at least, nothing sounds better than natural gut strings on an old 20s soprano. Gut was the...
