    Season 581 - It's... Frisco, it is... Albion

    Thanks for hosting YIle, here's a rare Hawaiian cover from me. Sorry for the verbal miscue, I referred to it as Season 580. I've recently began to build up my Hawaiian song set as i'm regularly being asked to accompany a couple of groups of Hula dancers. Island here refers to the Big Island of...

    For Sale Mya Moe master grade myrtle tenor w/ k&k pickup

    As someone who used to use this forum much more regularly than I have been lately, I've noticed a few changes. For example, I don't seem to get notice from the site that I have a message to an ongoing thread. I only recently discovered that they show up as alerts rather than a message being sent...

    Under discussion Create a place to discuss strings (Was: String Theory)

    I would suggest that the reason much of the string info is repetitive and in many cases of little value has to do with the fact that most folks have not spent well over a thousand dollars researching strings over the last 5 years like I have :) A comment such as I like Worth Browns has little...

    Under discussion Create a place to discuss strings (Was: String Theory)

    I would participate in this conversation. I've done an immense amount of experimenting with every string under the sun, and have some info to share, but i'm also always curious to hear what's working for others and why. Cheers ~

    sotu 578 - Get Yer Ya Ya's Out! And Double your Fun.

    Hi John, thanks for taking a turn as host this week! When I started searching for live albums, I realized very quickly it was an infinitely deep rabbit hole :) So I decided to pick a few bands and start researching their live albums until I found a song I felt encouraged to record. Initially I...

    Sold FS: Kanile'a K-1 Deluxe Koa Baritone

    That is the nicest Kanile'a Baritone I recall seeing! Good luck with both the sale and your transition to the 6 string guitar. I go back and forth between playing mostly bigger bodied ukes and guitars!

    Thomastik-Infeld CF27 Alternative?

    In most cases I use Classical set strings 1-4 on tenors and strings 2-5 on baritone. That said, I generally buy singles and put my own sets together to match the tension and tone I prefer.

    Thomastik-Infeld CF27 Alternative?

    For those of you who use Thomastik-Infeld CF30, and CF27's on your G and C strings, has anyone noticed that the life expectancy has shortened drastically? My teaching and gigging schedule has me playing 40+ hours a week, but recently the last 3 CF27's I've had on my primary uke have only last...

    I don't think this is cool at all

    Man, I've busy playing and teaching uke the last 3 years and haven't been able to spend much time here. I'm flabbergasted that this topic has 44 pages :) I bought a second hand Pono chambered steel string baritone (BE-ST) I think. After a year of heavy use gigging and jamming on it, the Passive...

    Amazingly generous of you Jon ! ! ! I hardly find/make time to visit of late, and it really was just on a whim I checked in to see what was going on. Glad I stumbled on this and love the long window in which one might "take their time" as you said to choose something and spend all the time...
