    I have a Baritone Uke with a set C, 8vb strings on it. It's Island tuning, but an octave lower than normal. That gets it so low that chords sound pretty mushy. But plucking single strings sounds...

    The key word in your post is "subjective." To my ear, the only difference in sound between a parlour guitar and a baritone ukulele is the broader spectrum of sound from the guitar's lower strings. ...

    Yes, it seems that adding malware to Chrome Extensions has become commonplace. I never add anything on "invitation." If I think I need something, I go out on the net and look for it. And, even...

    Wow, another biker in the group! OK, ex-biker, but once a biker, always a biker, right? As a beginner you need two things: (1) an instrument with decent tone quality, and; (2) a good setup on the...

    My cousin shocked me with the news that he bought an Ukulele and was practicing on it. Then he visited me, and I saw that he was struggling with a $49 instrument. As is typical of that sort of...

    I keep a Low G on many of my Ukuleles. And, the normal way to string and tune a Baritone is with a Low D. In fact, I can't recall ever seeing or hearing a Bari with reentrant tuning. I always...

    I, too, have experienced that in groups. Frankly, that's one reason I don't play in groups anymore. I like to hear myself. I like to be creative. I like to play tunes my way, especially when...

    Seriously, you don't have to pay Martin prices to get a great sounding Ukulele. Last night I was playing and comparing my new Kala Baritone with my Kamaka Baritone. I paid $229 for the Kala and the...

    Oh no! Not that. I was referring back to the video link I posted above, where W.C. Fields plays "The Fatal Glass of Beer." The first few bars are quite similar to the melody you played, reminded...

    mjh42 - Loving Ukulele as I do, having a number of them is a real blessing. Basically, I try to play a different Uke each day. Sometimes, I switch mid-day, and get two in. I tend to play and sing...

    Very pretty! I found that quite restful. You know, somehow that tune reminds me of W.C Fields playing "The Fatal Glass of Beer:" https://youtu.be/ecmickQZfYY . You don't happen to sing too, do...

    Just a thought, but why not interview a number of youngsters and ask them what songs they like? That should at least get you pointed in the right direction.

    I found the song on youtube (https://youtu.be/FO4c34rXl_8?list=PLYumiUU16LrKFooq2C2wEVJregjn4rLbU) so you could run it through Chordify (https://chordify.net/) and extract the chords. That's the...

    I spent some time looking online for you. I think they are the same. Typically, the "C" in a Ukulele model number designates "Concert." And, that appears to be the case with Brunswick. ...

    I think you're simply referring to what we call "strumming." Typically, beginners, or players in a group setting, strum across all strings to the beat or rhythm of the tune their playing. Sometimes...

    UAS - Alive and well here!

    UAS is a progressive disease. I know. I've got it. I don't know how many times I've told myself, "I quit, that's it for me. No more Ukuleles". Then something happens. This time, I was looking...

    I've gone the Travel Uke route. It isn't all that fulfilling. I have a Kala Travel Concert that is fun to play, and looks nice. The only thing "travel" about it is its thin body. It's as if Kala...
