    Yes, Gryphon does great setup work. However, call them first to make sure they'll work on your instrument. Santa Clara County just started allowing curbside pickup of new purchases. I don't know if...

    I doubt that mainstream concerts will reappear until a vaccine is developed. At least I do not plan to attend any crowded indoor live concerts until I am vaccinated. I do not expect that to happen...

    He's already been on TV several times, in the USA and in Asia. He's still only 12 years old, so don't expect any concert tours for a while. This video is from 2018, when he was 10 or 11 years old.

    I tried one of those $20 generic hard cases from EBay. I was very disappointed in it. The top wasn't straight and didn't close and latch easily. The metal hardware nailed on and the nail ends poked...

    I have tried the Rebel. Like the Opio, it is great for the price, but a noticeable downgrade from a Hawaii-made Koaloha. I wouldn't buy it unless I was trying to reduce wear-and-tear on my Koaloha.

    These are all personal preference issues. Some people will prefer Kala over Ohana or vice versa. Once you get into the middle price ranges ($300 to $500 or so), there are a lot of great brands to...

    I think the big advantage of a wider neck for fingerstyle is you will usually get more space between the A-string and the edge of the neck, which gives you more control of fingerstyle techniques like...

    From what I've seen, Kalas always have very good intonation, but action is always a little high at the nut. They are playable out of the box, but would be more comfortable with a little adjustment.

    Most ukulele players don't use picks, but some do, especially people who started with guitar. Personally, I think a thumb pick makes a lot more sense than a flat pick. This video is a good tutorial: ...

    I don't like having the strings right up to the edge of the fretboard since that makes pull-offs on the A-string really hard to do cleanly. I like what Koaloha and Kanilea are doing having a wider...

    I got a sketchy popup ad when I tried to visit their website. Google is probably right about malware.

    I use MuseScore for both tablature and standard notation. It is free for PC and Macintosh (don't know about iPad). I find it easy enough to use, but I haven't tried the expensive options.

    Anyone know why Americans are not interested in these kinds of tutorial tablature books? At least not interested enough to encourage American publishers to release similar books in English?

    You only need to download the music if you want to study it in advance. You can read it on your screen if you don't want to waste paper.
