    I've been at it about a year and a half. I used to sing, and played with a guitar off and on for years, but never got good at it. Just didn't have the time and energy to practice, and to what end...

    I would need a drink :cheers: before making one where I was dressed. I don't think there is enough tequilla in the whole state of Tennessee to get me to do a nekkid ukulele video. :eek: For that,...

    I can understand the problem and offer no solutions. But I will bet that because of the title, when the statistics are compiled, this will likely be one of the most read threads in UU history.

    These have been great comments, and I appreciate all the input. I really hadn't thought of the fret width, but I have fairly short fingers and it might be that a better concert would suit me better....

    I'd never even thought of playing a uke until some months ago when I stumbled across Jake Shimabukuro (hope I spelled that close) and heard how awsome a ukulele could sound. Then I ran across UO of...

    A question for UAS sufferers

    Hi folks,

    I bought a Lanikai Concert uke back in March to see if I would enjoy playing the ukulele. Of course, I did.

    So now I am looking to upgrade, but I need to decide if I want to upgrade...

    Along this same line, I have always had trouble with a cramp (of sorts) in my left hand, basically along the thick pad on my thumb. It's worse on bar chords, but to some extent, on doing G-chords. ...

    If you notice (and I'm sure most do) the first and fourth strings play the same note on both the D and E chords when "properly played." If you mute the first string, you really aren't losing a note...

    I have a Lanikai concert. I've had it maybe five weeks and am really enjoying it. I like the sound, and it is completely playable. I think it is fair to say that the uke is not the limiting factor...

  16. Looking for suggestions for songs to learn

    Hi all,

    I've been playing with a new uke for about three weeks. Before that, I had played guitar off and on (badly) since I was a teenager (The Doors were big back then, so it's been a long...
