    I know that fight too well, Dennis. My deepest sympathies. May you have strength and understanding in helping your wife.

    No one has yet posted any good videos of the Acoustic Airmen, but as it turns out, Jake got a solo gig as well. Here he is on the Fais-Do-Do stage opening with a tasty "Time of the Season".

    It's been quite awhile, but we're coming down the home stretch. Final prototype should arrive next week. Materials are already on site for the first small production batch after that. They're...

    Don't want to say this with certainty, but don't count on finding anything worth taking home. In Central America in general the only way to get a decent Cuatro (Ukulele even more difficult) is to...

    We're about to put out a newsletter with details on what we're up to there, but some of the single wound bass sets will be available again shortly and the heavier double wound sets not long after...

    My deepest condolences, Howard. I have lost three collaborators: Jimmy Foster and Steve Rome who also passed on, and Omar Corrales who retired. Even with Omar, I miss the weekly "production calls"....

    Private Lessons from Jorge Glem!!!

    I just received an e-mail that prompted me to post here. It's not exactly about Ukulele, but the Cuatro (Venezolano). If you don't know much about the Cuatro, it's the Ukulele's older American...
  9. See the Movie!

    Hello Jim,

    First of all, you're late! Carnival in Rio (and here) will have been gone three weeks by tomorrow. We're all in Lent now. But that song has always been a favourite of mine and I've...

    The 2018 Jazz Fest schedule was just released and Jake will be playing on Saturday, April 29th, closing out one of the main stages. He won't be the featured artist, he'll be a sideman in the...

    Hello!

    No we have no storefront here; while New Orleans has a few excellent players, this area is not exactly a frenzy of Ukulele activity. People do stop by here in Mandeville (across Lake...

    Below is the Bible of Ukulele chord books. Not just basic chords, it's as comprehensive as anything I've ever see. Then it goes on to offer that huge selection of chords over the whole range of...

    Originally I think all Ukuleles were built like this. At least I've never seen an early Hawaiian model with an extended fretboard. Even when Martin came in, the tiny low extension they added didn't...

    Well, it's a very fluid situation with the video. Turns out the one I posted earlier today was not the official Shamarr Allen version. It was taken down for unauthorized use of NFL footage. ...

    Hit the Sean Payton

    Thought folks might like to see how we roll down south. Saints are in the playoffs for the first time in awhile. We won in the first round against Carolina last Sunday.

    After the game, cameras...

    Tua plays Ukulele

    First, I'm not an Alabama fan (Roll Wave, Geaux Tigers).

    But for those outside North America or who don't follow sports in general, Alabama won the college football national championship on...

    Flashmob Venezuela

    Here's something I came across recently. It's shot in the Casco (old quarter) of Maracaibo, the second largest city in Venezuela. The first Europeans arrived at the old Arawak/Carib town in 1499. ...

    No problem! That was an excellent post; the insights were valuable. As far as a lack of difference in sound, they are all standard Tenor Ukuleles and are all tuned the same. That, in and of...

    With Jorge Glem and Jake, possibly the two top "Ukulele" players extant both using their thumbs, you certainly don't want to dismiss this technique, even if it doesn't suit you personally. But I'd...

    So this was Fat's last performance at Jazz Fest in 2001. I was there that day (over to the right). Fats followed first Dr. John, and then Ray Charles onto the stage. What an afternoon! But as...

    This is an especially sad day here in New Orleans. Fats is so beloved here. Everyone has his music embedded in their souls. We all saw him struggle to get his modest 9th ward home back after...
