    FS: Tyler Mountain Banjolele

    I am selling my Tyler Mountain Banjolele (model TMBU-200), to help offset the cost of a new guitar. I received the Tyler Mountain in trade for a Mainland Banjo uke last spring. This is a soprano scale. It is quite heavy and feels much more substanstial than the mainland. I have been very...

    FS: KoAloha Super (longneck) Soprano

    I am selling my KoAloha SuperSoprano to help offset the cost of a new guitar. The SuperSoprano has a concert scale neck with a soprano size body. I bought the KoAloha new in Dec 2011, with a build date of Sep 2011. It is a fantastic instrument and is much louder than my Tenor Mainland. I...

    smitten with another instrument - mandolin

    I have been adding different instruments to our family collection and last week picked up a mandolin. I was originally getting this for my wife to play, but I have been thoroughly enjoying it. The fifths tuning of the mandolin is SO intuitive. Melody lines are so much easier to play (although...

    Song Help Request Appalachian Tabs and Chords

    Sometimes i feel the low G can make a uke seem a little "boomy". With that being said, I just restrung my tenor to low G last week, because I kept finding melodies that went below middle C. It also gives you the ability to do little bass runs.

    Jack a Roe

    I love this old folk song. I believe it has English origins and has been passed down through Appalachian circles as well. The Greatful Dead made the most recognized cover, but I believe Dylan and Joan Baez both did covers as well. I did a really quick recording and had my mike a little too...

    This isn't a tab book (melodies are in music notation), but I found a wonderful Bluegrass/Oldtime book recently that I have been enjoying. The book is called "Bluegrass Picker's Tune Book". You can find it here...

    I just ran across this and I had to share. It is "the old time machine" and it is awesome! It has several songs with chord charts and you can play different instrument parts in the song, there is even a slow guitar version to ensure you can play along. It is a great way to be able to play with...

    I attended my first "old time music" jam

    I had the pleasure of attending my first old time music jam last night. It was a far different experience than the uke jams I have attended. There are no chord sheets, the key of the song set is called out before hand and you play in that key and try and keep up. You are sort of thrown into...

    Fur Elise on my EleUke

    I had a go at Beethoven's Fur Elise. I had to slow the fast parts down a LOT, but I have enjoyed learning it. The best part for me in the case of this song, was sitting down with sheet music and figuring out how to play it, instead of just using a tab.
