    Bruno Tenor Banjo

    @ Rhiggi: I don't think it is a banjolele. Tenor banjos are using steel strings. Tuned differently to a uke, although I believe it is adaptable...

    Baritone ukulele strings

    I use Worth Brown, and a feature that I started noticing is that they are friendly on your fingers, when compared to wound strings. They are more expensive, but you get twice the length. On the tenors etc. I like Aquila

    Uke Scales - Diagrams

    Very Nice Diagrams . Thank You. Initially (approx. 2 years ago) it was confusing for me. The diagram shows where all the notes are for the major scale (32 positions on uke fretboard). So there are many ways to solo on the scale notes, and your fretting hand can go up the neck or down the neck or...

    Swing 42 tabs

    Interesting, but which programme do you use to slow the video down with? What happens when you like a song, but the video has no close up of a fretboard, or is played with a clarinet for example ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSRz_A5_g44

    To Transpose I use this internet Programme http://tabtransposer.com/ which I use to transpose to the key of choice. The results thereof I copy & paste to MS Word ! Works like a dream for me. Chordie has it as well, but the text is "boxed" (not sure what the official term is) ? If you want to...

    Winter has arrived in the North UK

    Hi Timbuck, A question if I may: I was asked to fit a new neck (electric guitar) to an existing body. The width needed a bit of sanding, and thereafter I could slide the neck into the cut-out of the body. The problem is : It sits snug in the body slot, but it sits too high and strings...

    Router Table Queries

    Hi everyone, I bought a 2nd hand home made router table with a cheap Makita router mounted on a piece of perspex in the centre. The problem is adjusting the height of the cutter, which can be done, but I have to remove the fence everytime and repeat the whole set up procedure, which is a pain...

    String Questions Kala & Ashbory

    Are the strings on these small bass instruments one and the same, or does Kala use different strings to Ashbory? Are the strings interchangeable ( from the one bass to the other?) I thought the string colours were different (going on the youtube clips)? For Kala there was mention of an oilseal...

    Logging in & out

    Good Afternoon everybody . When I am in my lunch hour at work, I like to read the Uke Bulletin Board, and that is "open time" for us, as during working hours the sites are blocked. At work I log out when I am finished, and as the pc leaves the site, there is a notice that it cleared all the...
