    I'm not sure that our thinking is in line with each other Graham. I would say that I am less frugal and more scatterbrained than anything else. Actually the point of my thread is that I don't care if...

    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...
  3. Never make due when you can buy something new.

    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...

    I don't have a uke that just lives in the car. But I do have my old Makala concert that has gone through some very harsh conditions. I paid $65 for it new. It was my first uke and I still play it, I...

    I have quite a bit of experience on this subject and I would just caution people who get phone calls, just hang up. Be careful how you answer random emails. Many of the calls and emails are not...

    Well I wouldn't know what women would say or not say, but I certainly agree that if you get an offer to do a gig that is accompanied by a request for banking information, it probably isn't legit. I'm...

    I want loud. Something that will cut through the background noise and stand out in a group. Cedar and spruce work for me. I have not had any experience with anything else except mahogany so I can't...

    I've never taught little kids, but I am the accompanist for a summer reading program here for underprivileged kids. They usually don't get themselves wrapped up in the current hits until around...

    Trying to ignore me, my incessant chattering and all my shenanigans. We've survived forty years that way. In the vision she might drop me and my ukulele off somewhere and then pick me up later. I...

    Big sigh, when I first started out I had this image of myself, a ukulele in a beat up case, going out to play on the street corners and in coffee shops, doing open mics in bars. Just me and my uke, I...

    The reason I took up the ukulele was to share my music with others. It could have been a guitar, or a concertina, or a violin, I was looking for something when I found the ukulele. The day my ukulele...

    I really didn't mean for it to have and anti Christmas vibe, or an anti Christian vibe. It was just a hard night. Sometimes it is just a hard night. It wasn't meant to be super serious. I was...

    I am a Christian, I'm a pretty regular church goer, and I like Christmas, but Christmas music often times seem so contrived. I've never liked Christmas music. But I've gotten just piles of popular...

    If it were only that easy. It seems that there is no way for me to avoid them in the next couple of months. I will try though.

    I prefer to mic both myself and the uke. I think that it sounds better. But that just doesn't always work, like you said, you can't compete. I have one uke with a MiSi installed and when all else...

    Rough night.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Christmas holidays but I just hate playing and singing holiday songs. Anyone else think that they are just all goofy and hard to play?

    I would take the screw out and stick a toothpick dipped in wood glue into the hole. Let it dry, cut it off with an exacto knife so that it is flush. Maybe drill a new pilot hole. Then put the screw...

    Not very often. I let them go longer than I should. The above advise is all really good. I'm just chiming in to note that nothing catastrophic is going to happen if you let them go a little longer...
