    I agree, Jared -- you got it! Very nice. Chord-melody playing is a great way to learn the fingerboard too. Thanks for sharing it!

    Thanks for posting the audio. Those sure do sound very strong and clear. Nice choice, and nice playing.

    Right, the Kala is solid cedar top, and I think acacia back and sides, if I recall correctly. It does indeed project very well. Good luck with the Ohana, if you get it. Hopefully your intonation...

    What kind of strings did you have on the bari before the Aquila Reds? Also, what do you like about the Reds -- louder? Clearer? Easy on the fingers?

    As far as projection, I guess it's hard to talk in absolutes. My Kala projects really well, so maybe the Ohana just seems quiet compared to that. Perhaps if I only had the Ohana to go on, I'd think...

    I have the Ohana BK-35CG cutaway baritone. Its sound is a little too soft for my tastes (not loud enough). As far as sustain, I'd say it's middling -- not dead, but not a lot either. My biggest...

    What a joy. Thanks for posting this, Jared. It sure brought a smile to my lips, and hopefully yours too. Tiny Tim sure is a blast from the past!

    Thanks Jim. Jarmo, I think it sounds beautiful on my bari, rather guitar-like, but of course it's a matter of personal taste.

    Jupu, the tuning I suggested should work for you. You can use a G...

    One of my baritones is tuned A-D-F#-B but not re-entrant. I use a classical guitar A string for the low A, and regular DGB baritone uke strings for the others. If you want to do re=entrant A,...

    Good find! I hadn't seen that one. So it could be either one, I guess.

    Yes indeed, Kala does make baritones -- I've got one. But I don't believe they make a baritone with a built-in pickup, in that product line.

    Agree on the first one, it's hard to tell. On the second, I would have guessed tenor. It looks like it has a built-in pickup, and I didn't think Kala offered that model in a baritone with a...

    It is fun trying out different tunings, and I'm digging the F Bb D G on my tenor. Have you retuned your concert yet to this tuning?

    You are welcome.

    And Bill, I'm liking this tuning a lot on my tenor. It opens up some good possibilities for me.

    In general, if you're switching from G-C-E-A tuning to F-Bb-D-G tuning, you would move each chord two frets higher up the neck.

    If using Bill's tuning of F-Bb-D-G, you could play an F chord this way: 4th string open (because it's an F), third string second fret (that's a C), second string third fret (that's an F), and first...

    Bill, sorry I can't answer your question as I don't play concert, but I'm gonna try your tuning on my tenor. Thanks for the post!
