    Many songs start and/or end on the chord of whatever key the song is in. Not 100% effective but it's a good place to start.

    I agree that if it works for you don't worry too much about it. That said, there may be some chord transitions that are easier from the partial barre position. How you hold the neck can affect your...

    Don't worry about the stings going out of tune quickly. That's typical for a new set of strings. It'll take a few days for them to stretch and the tuning will stabilize.

    No baritone LoPrinzis in stock but a mahogany is on the way. I'm intrigued by all the love being put out for the Favillas. Wish I could play one before I buy.

    the longer neck on the Bari results in the weight of the headstock sitting farther away from the pivot point of the strap button on the heel than a smaller uke. It's just like a lever. Common with...

    Yeah, the Pono is currently #1 on my list but I didn't want to just jump on that without hearing about some other options. I'll definitely check out the Favilla.
  10. Favorite baritone ukulele in the $500-750 range

    Hey there. I'd like to buy a baritone uke and would love to hear from anyone who has one. My preferences run towards a more mellow sound so I've been looking at mahagony, acacia and mango solid wood...

    Welcome! Sounds like early-onset UAS. Incurable, but highly treatable! I'm due for my next treatment soon and I suspect that only a baritone uke will help.

    Depending on your location Craigslist may be a good option. Here in the Midwest, I see Mountain Dulcimers listed fairly regularly.

    Yes, I've seen this complaint too. I have a whole house humidifier. Maybe that will be enough. I'll definitely report back in 6 months.

    Goldtone makes an armrest for the 8" uke-sized pot. You could also try contacting Bob Smakula. If he doesn't have it he might know who does.
