    Does anyone walk while playing? or play while walking?

    I can play standing and walking but only with a strap on my ukulele, tenor and baritone. I prefer to sit and play with strap on.

    Is it a good idea to have ukuleles with DGBE and GCEA tuning

    Having a Tenor tuned DGBE the same as my Baritone is great for finger picking. When my old small hands will not make the stretch on my Baritone I reach for the Tenor. I finger pick only most of the time and the Tenor and Baritone are both great for finger...

    Guilele (Guitalele, Guitarlele, ..., etc)

    A guitalele is the way to go in my opinion. True they come tuned A-A. However, I keep mind tuned G-G and sometimes I drop the tuning all the way down to E-E. You can take any sheet music or book to learn and pretend the instrument is tuned E-E and...

    'Kmise' ukulele, anyone?

    I have two Kmise instruments. A Baritone Ukulele and a 20 inch scale Guitalele. I love them both especially for the price. The Guiitalele has some small fret spurs but they are no big deal. The Baritone is almost perfect and sounds very bright.

    The Guitalele, Mini, Kiku, Ukitar, Guilele, "Six course small bodied instruments" thread

    I am happy to talk music, however, since the world has went crazy how does anyone go about if? I do not like, funk, rap, jive, jazz, hard rock. A little classical is OK, key word "little". I often wonder what happened to plain old simple nice music...
