    I started out usin’ pima, but I didn’t like it and switched to pim. I also used just my index and thumb for clawhammer. But then, just noodling tunes, I started using just my thumb.

    That certainly would not work for me. If I lie down anywhere I go to sleep, sitting up sometimes too.

    I’m using my tuba chair now days. It’s simply a dining room chair with an elongated seat. It’s a “tuba chair” because it sticks out enough in front so I can sit my tuba on it between my legs. It...

    Where are the harps? Or maybe a pipe organ? There seems to be plenty of room for a choir loft, but the choir’s too busy havin’ donuts and coffee. And bathrobes in heaven? No choir robes?

    By the way, when I play my new (second hand - gift) cornet, I go in my wife’s big closet full of clothes and blast away.

    Well, here I go . . . I sorta think of a ukulele as a “my dog has fleas” instrument. Fun to strum and sing at the beach under a palm tree, or in a canoe bobbing along at the lake, or by a blazing...

    Some old time tenor banjo tunes are played with chords instead of single notes and with a rhythmic strum. I suppose that’s why Eddie Peabody was demonstrating it.
