    Alulu HU999 8-string Solid Acacia Koa Tenor Ukulele, hummingbird in the UK

    Hi, I've been away from the forum for a while but I'm after an 8-string uke & after seeing the options available I've really fallen for this one. The only problem I've got is that I've never heard of them & it's looks as though I'd be having to buy in from abroad? Just wondered if anybody had...

    Problem with Tangi mini ukes...

    I just got hold of two Tangi mini ukes a few days ago. Really love them, though my fingers are still sore from tuning them. Haven't managed to master the tiny frets yet but have been able to get a few little tunes out. There are big differences between the two though. One is really nicely...

    Cheap uke hangers...

    I was out and about the other day and I came across something that I think makes a very good uke hanger. These things are sold as tool hangers, but they fit a uke real well. I've photographed the hanger holding my soprano, concert and banjo uke. Ofcourse I'm holding the hook, as we're looking...

    Song Help Request Who is this Ringo Starr guy?

    Indeed they are! I will correct myself so far as to say that yes, Ringo did some great work with the Beatles, and evolved from the poppy wobbly head drummer into something more intricate and understated. But I'm a huge Beatles' fan and it is my belief that it is just a case of being in the right...

    Song Help Request Who is this Ringo Starr guy?

    When asked once in an interview, later in the Beatles' career, if he thought Ringo was the best drummer in the world. Lennon replied that Ringo wasn't even the best drummer in the Beatles. By that point though, Paul was meant to have been doing most of the drumming in the studio?... Classic...

    Rightio guys, who feels like helping a fellow uker out today? Basically, as you may or may not know, I recently bought a banjo-uke. Well I always knew about "D" (ADF#B) tuning and how most banjo-uke players prefer that tuning as it's bolder and pluckier and such. Well at first I just tuned it...

    A different approach...

    I'm stuck in a rut. It's been prob near two years I bought my first uke and I'm getting frustrated. I look at people all around who play uke and how quickly they take to it. Truth is, I'm rubbish. I find myself just playing the same stuff, much to the frustration of my girlfriend. The problem is...
