    Those are encouraging words. I think. :D At least I am not the only one.

    I came up with the idea of just practicing the bum chi-cka with "what shall we do with the drunken sailor" using chords...

    Yeah, I am probably trying to run before I can walk.
    It feels daft to say it but I really don't think I am ready for Mary had a little lamb at this point.

    I am using Aarons book. I have a lot for...

    But the speed that others are playing is deceptive. I am...
  4. Claw Hammer (trying to be fun again but of course serious)

    How did you guys ever get the hang of it.

    Are we there yet? :D

    And don't forget to leave it in the box for three days before opening to let it acclimatize to its new home. Just kidding :D

    Hi Rakelele,

    I read through the thread in which you and Dave got the first pono UL4 prototypes. I am quite interested. I cannot find any where that has them in stock currently. I don't mind...

    A tenor guitar was not even on my radar. Its certainly an interesting instrument. There does not seem to be many models available or maybe I am not looking in the right places?

    I think I prefer to...

    Yeah, I know its not going to sound like a guitar, that is why I said this was for fun (kind of). :D

    I love playing Uke but don't really have much interest in playing guitar. That tune has been...
  12. Which Baritone? Please everyone give your comments. Good or Bad.

    This is for fun although the question is serious and I probably will buy one of these baritones.

    I know even less about pickups than I do about Ukes but that Diana looks sweet for sticking to a 250 quid budget. I imagine Southern Ukes does a thorough setup on the Ukes they sell too?

    Chickadees are the closest thing to tits in NA that I am aware of.
