    Some tune the strings at the fifth fret to split the difference. Honestly, if I can't hear it I don't even think about it. I would have never checked my old Makala if it hadn't been sitting there...

    I memorized my first song on the ukulele as I learned to play it. I thought that's what you do. It didn't dawn on me that one would go around with a pull cart full of music everywhere they went....

    Ask anybody, anything that you can find wrong with your uke can be fixed by the three Ss, Setup, Straps, and Strings. Put strap buttons on and you've taken care of one of them. :)

    As far as keys, I'm probably not on the same road as you in my ukulele journey so this is just me, but I don't learn things in keys that I'm not singing in. I have a few keys on the ukulele that are...

    My problem with matching shirts and name tags is that somehow I've developed an irrational aversion to uniformity.

    I wouldn't call it the "Bad Boy", just different. My opinion here and nothing more, it doesn't fit in anywhere. It is tuned like a guitar, not like a ukulele. It lacks the two base strings of a...
