    Harmonica kit...

    Are you sure he wants to stay with diatonics(?), you can get a decent chromatic around the £150 mark, which will have all the notes & incidentals, (sharps/flats).

    Favorite Sports?

    I'm now into kick scooting, looks a bit like cycling, but is more like running, without the stress on your joints. :)

    The 'super'/'long neck' thread.

    Just for something to do, I thought I'd start this thead, to see who/how many own such instruments, what they like about them, etc. So, if you have one, & would like to discuss it/them with other like minded people, this is the place. :music:

    Food Forum

    I'd ask one of the moderators - if lots of recipes got posted under one thread title it will get very messy very quickly - they may be able to start a 'Food' specific forum under 'General' - worth a try at least.

    Farewll Friends.

    Farewell Friends. Seems like UU is to be no more, or at least, as we have known it. :( I will now have to try & find another forum to converse on about ukes - so unless we meet on another forum - I'd just like to say that it has been a pleasure to have known you all, & wish you well for the...

    Song Help Request I Need help!

    Old people & resistance to new things, it's well known, & they/we don't want to change, but that's not the point. As above it's about giving your audience what they would like to hear, & maybe even join in with. Put it to your 'old farts' - are you playing for yourself, or your audience. :music:

    Strings Do fluorocarbon strings start to sound more like nylons after a while?

    I think nylon strings on guitar are fine, as are steel strings, but when you come down to the uke, the length of the scale is more suited to finer strings, such as the fluorocarbons, which allow for more/better vibrations, over that of nylon.
