    SOTU 550 (!!!) "IT'S ONLY A MOVIE, INGRID!"

    The 1974 movie, "Buster and Billie" wasn't a big block buster by any means, and has become a bit of cult classic amongst those that saw and remember it. Lost for several years, it was recently found and reissued on Blu-Ray. Hoyt Axton wrote and performed the theme song for the movie, and did a...

    WHOO HOO! Guess what arrived in yesterday's mail? I am thrilled, Sara and thanks so much again for your wonderful Season. I wasn't sure which ukulele I would put it on, but my mahogany bari "demanded" it because it complimented its rich brown colors so nicely! Can't argue with your...

    Season 218: Wildlife songs

    Well, it ain't a rat, but close enough! Are you familiar with the Southeast Ukers group? Love their logo, and your Krabbers Kover! Now I'm wondering why no one has brought "Dead Skunk" to the party? Hmmm, not a good fit for Option 1, but certainly should fit 2 or 3! Thanks Mark, for...

    Scrolling Song/Chord sheet PDF files on an Ipod, Iphone, or Ipad

    I've converted a lot of songsheets to pdf file format so that I can easily view them from our Ipad or Ipod and am enjoying the many pluses of viewing the songsheets on a mobile device rather than a cumbersome 3 ring binder. I would now like to reformat the page size to permit continuous auto...

    Any interest in creating a UU Guitarpro 6 Users Group?

    I am still very new to all of this stuff (ukes, music, the uu forum, guitarpro 6, tabbing, etc.) so I was reluctant to just go ahead and do it without first getting some feedback. Hopefully, this is the most appropriate Forum to seek feedback on this topic. Is anyone else interested in...

    Old Dog - New Uker: Hello from Roanoke, Virginia USA

    I tried the guitar several times over the years but never seemed to get beyond learning a few chords. Started with a Lanakai ukulele this June and quickly acquired UAS. Just received my first solid wood uke last week and am thrilled. I can't believe how much fun I am having with 2 less...
