    I think you missed the point of my post, Counter!

    I could happily restring it in 5 minutes!

    Well yes, but I pick the high G too!

    There are some lovely picking patterns that use the 4th string and, being strange and re-entrant, it creates what is, for me, the unique sound of the uke (OK,...
  6. So, this Low G thing...what's it all about?

    Hi guys

    After years as a sop-only player, I decided I wanted to explore the size of a tenor and playing with a Low G.

    I now have a beautiful walnut Weasley Wharf hand-made tenor. I'm really...

  12. Risky to replace existing machine tuners?

    Hi guys

    I'm considering replacing the Grover tuners on my tenor with some Gotoh UK700s.

    The plate holes look to be in pretty much identical positions to the Grovers.

    Hi Mivo (and wayward!).

    I'm not much of 'NUD'er, if I'm honest! And I can't see myself uploading any sound files, even if I could record them at a decent quality!

    I think most people think that you need to play with a low G if you;re playing jazz, to get the depth and body of a chord. Most people playing jazz uke probably do it on a tenor (I think most people...
