    Thanks for pointing me towards Colin Tribe. I'm checking your site now, I was there before, but now a more thorough inspection. And I practically live on UkeHunt.

    WTP: chord-(almost)-only insrumentals

    Good question Carl. I'm thinking of playing things with not more than a few minor picking parts, but that still 'melodious' enough to be recognizable. Genre: rock and pop would be nice, but I'm open for everything. Like I said, I'm a poor singer, and like to strum, alone.

    WTP: chord-(almost)-only insrumentals

    Mellow vs. warm

    Searching this forum and other resources for my ultimate ukulele I've come across words like "mellow" and "warm". English is only my third language, so I might have misinterpreted these terms. Besides from just wanting the ultimate ukulele and not being able to purchase one due to a low...

    Anyone else have trouble with Dm?

    Like said above: make an F-chord and 'bend' your middlefinger back to fret the c-chord. (Pardon my bitten nails, I just got divorced ;)) Practise this for a few days, and you'll get the hang of it. On my concert and the tenor I had before this was also the only way I could make the Dm-chord.

    FREE Aquila red low G soprano string.

    I have tried an Aquila red string on my Dolphin, and didn't like it. I played maybe an hour with it (it's actually still on it). I have some postage stamps I never use (hello mr. e-mail), and tons of envelopes. Just say the word and I'll mail it to anyone who wants to try it on his or her uke...

    Decrease tension: soprano strings on a concert uke?

    The one thing that bothers me is the higher string tension when playing a concert compared to a soprano. I really do prefer the lower tension while playing. This gave me the crazy idea of putting Aquila soprano strings on one of my concerts. I know they're long enough, but will this lower the...

    Makala MK-C vs. Kala KA-C

    So I almost made my mind up about my new concert. I found the right store (kudo's to Courtney and Walker: the best e-mail conversation I ever had with a vendor, very detailed answers to all my questions from Paul Walker himself). And I decided that Kala is the way to go for me, I just am...

    Looking for a little help with *cheap* concert ukes choice

    I'm back to playing just my Dolphin after I tried a tenor and a baritone. Both were too large for me, despite my larger than average hands. I sold my tenor to another UU-forum member in the UK and my baritone is wrapped and packed to be send to whoever wants to steal it. Yes steal it. Shameless...
