    When I was in 3rd grade, I was listening to popular music on the radio, and my older siblings' records. Definitely not children's songs. By 4th grade I started my own record collection that did not...
  3. My uke sounds much better up the neck when I tune...

    My uke sounds much better up the neck when I tune down a whole step to Bb6 tuning for some reason. Also it's easier to play, louder and the tone is beautiful.

    I like Imperial because the basic measurement is base 12, if they went further with that it would be perfect. Divide inches into 12ths instead of 16ths, a mile should be divisible by 12, something...

    You didn't say what key you want to sing it in, so here's the key they recorded it in for the movie. A few chords could be better, but this works for me. Good luck.

    Thanks Jim, my uke, is also body heavy, but when I hold it without a strap and remove my left hand, the neck does dip. I wouldn't want to strum it like that for very long, but it doesn't bother me...

    Well, I guess you think this hurts my feelings. Grow up. The story I have chosen to believe was suggested by a real Hawaiian, Queen Lili’uokalani. You don't want to believe her, she was around when...

    Well, he also got the chords wrong and the time signature wrong too, but it doesn't bother me. I like the way he does it, he made it his own, the way he likes it. Usually I get the words wrong too,...

    It seems like you are the one being bigoted. My mind is open and yours is closed. If someone doesn't agree with what you say, you try to bully them into accepting your opinion. The fact is, no one...

    I am not an expert on this tool, but I imagine that the closer to your target diameter, the less chance for a mistake. If you can find something cheaper, I would go for that instead, but if you don't...
