    Stephen Colbert let viewers know about it March 31, then showed a never broadcast clip of both him and Prine singing, "That’s the Way the World Goes Round.”

    I wish him well.

    No apology needed Jared. You expressed what many of us are feeling. Hopefully we can find a solution to keep this forum, or one like it, going.

    Agree. I understand this site is outmoded and difficult to maintain. But it provides a true "forum" for discussion. I might as well use FaceBook instead of Discord.

    Ergonomics are important. We all get into bad habits of positioning our bodies and arms and hands when we play. Standing vs. sitting.

    You might try stretching your thumb(s) before and after you play. (Finger stretches too.) It helps me. Plus I practice in shorter time blocks than I used to. Taking more breaks.

    I believe the #008 means it is the eighth Soprano made by Cocobolo. (But it could also be the 8th cedar/cocobolo soprano made.) Many of the early Cocobolo Brand ukes had Teak necks. I couldn't tell...

    Nice. I have a cedar/koa one that is quite resonant. Deep and warm but with very clear notes.

    Is the body of yours mahogany? I'll bet it projects really well.

    Best of luck with the sale.
