    A warm hello (on a cold gloomy day) from LA

    Welcome to UU! Sounds like you got the bug and have a nice collection going. I still think about the spalted mango STC I sold, from time to time. It's such a sweet lil instrument!

    SOTU 640: BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN

    This previously unreleased track by Neil Young and Crazy Horse dropped right on time for this week. It's called "Everybody's Alone." If the horse reference in the band name isn't enough for this theme, I'm hoping the lyrics "You'll find me resting in the shade of mountains and trees" fits the...

    Japanese Songbook recommendations

    @Kaz-Maz got me on the hunt, so i definitely added a few pounds (or kg) of books to my luggage over the last couple days. I just started learning Kobayashi's arrangement of Misty tonight and it's very sweet! It's in his "Ukulele Sweet Jazz" book. I'm looking forward to getting home to pop in...

    Do you ever feel guilty?

    I've definitely had those feelings... and I've done it over and over and each time is a bit of an internal struggle. But, as it's been said, i love each one and I play the heck out of em. Smiles each time I bring em out of the case and they put my spirit at ease as the sounds eminate and I feel...

    Going down the Japanese Uke rabbit hole

    Big thanks to @Kaz-Maz for all the tips while I've been visiting Japan! I'm bummed to have missed Sound Messe, but I've had the pleasure of visitng about eight uke shops in four weeks, getting to play some nice and unique ukes. I've discussed some of my experiences in my NUD's. Here im Tokyo...

    New Uke Day (NUD) Sumi UK-T5KD (Martin 5K Ditson Soprano Replica)

    I was counting smiles yesterday, as I was traveling thru the train stations with my kitsune fox mask on my head. I counted four definite smiles and maybe 6-7 looks with minimal reaction. If one went thru all my UUF posts saying I'm done, I'd definitely be pinned as a lying, weak willed, UAS...

    Season 639 - You Tell ME What the Theme Is

    I was trying to think of a deep, thought provoked theme of a caged bird or freedom oe being stuck or trapped, but a the songs I thought of that matched were too much effort than can give, at the moment. So I copped out with a song I already knew that fits an easy theme of Songs with the word...

    New Uke Day (NUD) Sumi UK-T5KD (Martin 5K Ditson Soprano Replica)

    Thanks for the tips @Kaz-Maz ! We just made to Shibuya today, so I'll hafta check out some of those music sheets/books you mentioned while here for our last week. Are you familiar with the shops here? Which would be most likely to have 'em? 'Ukulele Mania or Tan Tan maybe? I need to go there...

    Hello from Seattle

    Welcome to the UU Forum!! We have a bit of similar uke history and stomping grounds! I (re)started playing uke 3yes ago this summer and I'm based in the Seattle area and have lived close to half my life in The Bay Area! That's awesome that you arrange your own chord melody! We'd love to hear...

    who here still clicks pics with a dedicated camera? What does your gear look like.

    My wife and I noticed this trend of folks having dedicated cameras over here in Asia... but especially Japan. I'm not sure if it's because we're in tourist'y spots or if it's actually a thing. Our mediocre shots of Mt. Fuji yesterday made me wish I had my DSLR or at least a my point and shoot...

    New Uke Day (NUD) Sumi UK-T5KD (Martin 5K Ditson Soprano Replica)

    Another trait that make her the best is her simplicity in the jewelry department! 😬 she's not into the bling either. I wear/own more rings, bracelets, and sunglasses than she does! Mine are not blingy, but she's not even into em. And neither of us wear earrings. I do consider myself to be quite...

    New Uke Day (NUD) Sumi UK-T5KD (Martin 5K Ditson Soprano Replica)

    It's really some sort of mutant power. When I get home, I need to lock myself inside and play 'em all for a couple decades! It's also a bit crazy to think that my Ko'olau tenors, concert, and this Sumi are all used. Makes me wonder what the original owners kept!!

    New Uke Day (NUD) Sumi UK-T5KD (Martin 5K Ditson Soprano Replica)

    I was laughing out loud with the shop owners (husband and wife team) as I was teaching them about UAS and how mad my wife would get. 😅 Ko'olau concert (carry-on gig bag/hard case combo), G-Labo thin body sopaniño (inside my backpack), Sumi soprano (hand carry-on). I have committed to buy my...
