    Christian. Your private message is inappropriate and fortunately I am strong enough that I didn’t react badly to it but I could have quite easily, especially the last sentence.

    The fact is that...

    Im glad you said they have a lot of stretch. I dont have your experience so wasnt sure if I had strung them correctly and mine are the same although they are going out of tune a little less each time...

    Sorry but I don’t agree. In my scenario the bees are invisible, they stick to your clothing and every time I go out I am at risk of bringing them back into my home to vulnerable members of my family...

    I agree, its hard to evaluate risk with an unknown. I have never been stung by a bee so I dont know if I have an allergy to them. For me its the same thing.

    This is a great reminder to us newbies to try and stop watching our fingers :)

    I find bad habits so much easier to acquire than good habits (hides the leftover Christmas biscuits)

    My Worth Browns arrived today.

    I’ve only been playing since May and had never changed a string before but after watching a dozen YouTube videos managed to swap them all over!

    They sound lovely...

    So they solve the sound problem but feel a bit weird? I’m hoping I can get used to that! Now I’m off to research nut files ;)

    I’ve ordered some Worth Browns too so it’ll be interesting to hear how you compare the two when you get yours (although for tenor I know)

    You must be happy just to be rid of those wound strings....

    Oh great, I am eagerly awaiting your update!

    My partner asked me today if now I have a baritone I will be selling my concert. No words were needed, just the look on my face :D

    If only our music shops were open!

    I think I’ve found the solution. I’ll buy Worth’s and LW and then I’ll have to get another baritone uke :D

    Thank you. I do like a warmer sound..... gosh I think I'm over-thinking all of this!!
  13. That widening of the slot to fit new strings...

    That widening of the slot to fit new strings seems a bit daunting to me, truth be told. My partner is pretty handy so maybe I'll sit him down in front of some youtube videos!

    I love stream of consciousness posts. Can you do a regular slot Mike?!

    Does anyone have any thoughts about Worth Browns versus Living Water? I seem to have narrowed my search down to these two.
  19. Thank you! Yes I’m a spoilt Mum this year : )

    Please let me know how you get on. I received a Kala baritone for Christmas and I’m not keen on the wound strings. It sounds like someone rubbing dry hands together when I strum!

    I agree, the Dutch oven makes a good, crunchy crust when we fancy it but most times now I’m too lazy to preheat the Dutch oven and shape the dough into soft rolls instead!

    Yes you only use a quarter of a teaspoon of yeast. There are natural yeasts in the flour that multiple overnight. A bit like a sourdough!

    The mixture is pretty wet and the bread ends up very moist...

    That looks gorgeous Mike!

    Have you tried no knead overnight bread? You only use a tiny bit of yeast and my partner gets less indigestion with it. And no heavy mixing or kneading!

    I make a lot of seitan so I've always got vital wheat gluten in the cupboard. If you can tolerate gluten, adding some VWG at a rate of 1 tsp per cup of flour (1.5 tsp if using brown flour) makes...
