    Lots of things out there cost a lot of money. Just because one doesn't have the money to buy them doesn't mean that people are some how marginalized because they do. If you think they are overpriced,...

    I tried all methods of accessing my music without the use of a page turner. For me, the scrolling features are always cumbersome. But with enough effort I could get the job done in some manner or...

    As demonstrated by this thread, like everything else tuning is different for everyone. Some just want to get their ukes tuned up and play. Others turn it into a ritual. I've gone down that road and...

    I think that the next time you see that person, you turn around and go the other direction. I just avoid people who try to marginalize other's accomplishments in order to validate their own lack of...

    Doesn't that just defeat the purpose? I mean, to me the baritone has a low and mellow sound. People play it to get that sound. You capo it at the fifth fret, you just got rid of your low and mellow....

    Headstock. I just can't bring myself to screw a piece of hardware into my ukulele if I don't have to and that I wouldn't use half the time anyway. I don't always use a strap.

    The last time I commented was back the first part of April. I forgot all about it. I've been playing the same set of sugars all summer and fall. I still like them. The squeaking went away at some...

    Good catch Graham. Sorry that it confused you. It probably should have been do, not due. In my professional life I do have an editor who catches all of those little slip ups, but she refuses to edit...

    I was going to make this comment on another thread, but I'll let it go there. Because I realized that one never makes due when they can buy something new. Just saying, I came to a UU realization this...
