    Is the low G string wound or unwound? Maybe switching to the other type than the one you are using now will blend the notes a little better

    I had a pono and noticed the sound was a lot louder and less muted with fluorocarbon strings. I think you have to dig in and play pretty hard to get a really loud sound out of them. Just my...

    Well I guess I am not as young as I used to be. It is not encouraging to hear about others dealing with these issues for months or years. However, it is encouraging to see I’m not the only one to...

    Maybe I should have given up. I was hitting the chord pretty cleanly about 60 percent of the time. Oh well.

    Anyone else injure themselves like this. How long was the recovery

    So I spent a little too much effort and time trying to play a C6 chord barre (2433) in a song and I pulled a tendon in my fretting hand/arm.

    Yeah, I remember reading one of the comments on one of his videos. Someone asked him for the tabs, and he replied, he doesn't tab things out - so he could not provide them.

    if that's the case, I would sent it to Kamaka - but to each his/her own. Did Kamaka say it would take a year? Their website says 4-6 months, but you probably would get it back quicker than that, no?
