    I think that it isn't always about skill and technique. I think that there are some mental aspects to the equation. If one is playing a ukulele that has some significance to them, be it looks or...

    I still wouldn't wish electrocution on them, even if they are doing something stupid. I just wonder how kids come up with stuff like this.

    Whether they are made in the same factory or not, it seems that building mass produced ukuleles in China is pretty standardized. I mean, they are made by machines and the machines come from somewhere...

    Started the guitar yesterday.

    I dug out my wife's old hippy dippy guitar in the basement, checked it over, tuned it up, found a nice chord chart that is not filled with obscure chords that I'll never play in real life, picked out...

    Yes there is, and while playing the ukulele is a fun, and on the surface it appears to be just the most loving, non-judgemental, wholesome activity that there could be, we aren't going to impact...

    Sometimes a tuner or a tuning app will not discriminate between octaves. When I got my first ukulele I tuned the C string an octave too low. The tuner told me it was a C. Took me a day or two here...

    There comes a point I think where you have accumulated enough knowledge and skills that it just isn't practical to review it all every time you sit down. How does one learn new things if they spend...

    Absolutely. There is stage pressence, the whole package. The style, the presentation, the look, it isn't all about just playing a song on a ukulele. The right ukulele can add a lot to it.
