    I just learned Avalon by Bryan Ferry/Roxy Music. Itís slow, and I play it even slower. Itís an absolutely beautiful chord progression that needs no lyrics or melody to my ears, although the melody is...

    You know, I was literally just thinking about this as I was playing my beloved Deering banjolele this evening. What if it’s discontinued?! What if they change the neck that’s currently so perfect for...

    My tenor. Itís just too big. I prefer the feel and sound of a soprano. I also put a low G on it and immediately hated it. Iím about to try some different strings on it though.

    I just bought a Deering Goodtime banjolele yesterday. I LOVE it! Being a woman I’ve always found hanging onto a Uke tedious. If I press in with my strumming arm my chest pushes the neck out too far....

    I guess I tend to like a sweet sound. I have a cedar top (acacia sided) Ohana that is so musical and bell-like plucked. Itís angelic. For strumming I prefer my Cůrdoba. Itís solid acacia top and...

    Thanks for your response. We think the top is spruce as well. My husband thinks the other may be acacia.

    I love my Cůrdoba 25sk soprano. I loved it the instant I picked it up. It’s snappy, great for strumming, and the neck size is perfect for my short stubs. She’s purty too.

    Being as my hubby has his own guitar obsession he perfectly understands my love affair with the ukulele. He’s delighted I’ve kept with it, and he plays it sometimes.

    Thanks, I’ll mention standing to her. She says she can’t see if she holds it straight, which is true, lol. In any case, she’s learned a different way to do F and has found a chord practicing tutorial...

    Thanks! I’ll look again. I didn’t tie them yet. I just layed them out next to the tenor (a Luna, regular headstock), and determined they’d be too short to tune. It’s probably me. At least I have a...

    Not Hawaiian, but I’ve been playing Greensleeves out of Mike Lynch’s chord/melody book. The melody is beautiful anyway, but it seems to go perfectly with the sound of a ukulele.

    I wanted to update. I don’t know what went wrong, but the strings were far too short for the tenor. I’ll put them on my soprano though.
