    I'm jealous! Peter's workshops are fantastic.

    I keep my nails too short to use Alaskas, but I've used other similarish plastic finger picks. I don't know that they'd help a lot for Peter's class....

    Assuming you’re only looking at US makers I’d guess that you’re short about 38 states there and probably DC. I know there are several small but good local luthiers making ukuleles, and I suspect...

    Great question! I've been to a couple within driving distance for me and am interested in what's going on elsewhere.

    Not sure which one exactly you're looking at. My Enya X1 Soprano has a solid headstock (looks like mahogany + a koa-ish top plate), but it's only 7/16" thick. Shaving a half inch off would be...

    It depends a lot on what you mean by rocking out. If you want heavy distortion then go with steel strings.

    If you want a RISA (a good choice, though far from the only choice) Mim has a couple of...

    It depends somewhat on the instrument size and what else you have around. I have a two-piece stand like Gary linked on my shelf at work for my soprano, but I don't like it for larger instruments or...

    Shouldn't bury focusing on a challenging song (#5) in the middle. As a really good and realistic idea it should be first or last.

    Changing the tunings (#3 and #8) are also decently reasonable...

    My guess is that's a half note to match the chord in the standard notation. That bar looks like it's in 4/4, so there are four beats: hold the first (circled) F chord for two beats, one beat for the...
