    New Uke Day (NUD) Kala Revelator

    That is great to hear! I am planning on picking up a Koa version soon. A lot of reviews have been saying this ukulele is overpriced, would you say so? Simon

    The New Revelator

    It's not just the change of location. These will be machine made most likely and with cheaper wood/composite. Build quality/construction will most likely be altered as well since it is built by machine.. Simon

    New Uke Day (NUD) Kala Revelator

    Hey! Beautiful instrument, great wood and model choice!! I want to pick up one of these. I have a question, how is the action? I've heard a couple times that it is quite high and makes the uke difficult to play. Is this true? How has your experience been playing one? Thanks for the info, Simon

    What is an unpopular/controversial opinion you have regarding the ukulele?

    If I was offered to have enough ukes to sink a canoe or just have one decent one but practice every week, I'd choose the second one. Also wow this thread has a lot of replies lol.

    Next UU contest?

    Hey all, I'm relatively new to this forum, saw a contest section and it looks pretty inactive for the past couple of months. Anyone know when the next contest is going to be? Simon

    What is an unpopular/controversial opinion you have regarding the ukulele?

    Very funny indeed, but a low G string does have benefits in not only having the ability to go to it in melodies, but also in chord melody. Simon

    What is an unpopular/controversial opinion you have regarding the ukulele?

    I understand, and as a teacher I do appreciate the work you do with play-alongs, as yes it does make ukulele more engaging in the classroom. My point was while they do teach ukulele to a certain extent, to keep progressing on the instrument, more than uke play-alongs are needed, and a lot of...

    What is an unpopular/controversial opinion you have regarding the ukulele?

    Tiny Tim definitely ruined the ukulele's reputation, and made people think of it as a novelty/joke. Simon

    What is an unpopular/controversial opinion you have regarding the ukulele?

    I think we shouldn't quite do classical guitar technique, but not what people are currently doing. The proper way in my opinion is have the thumb BEHIND the neck, not around it. This allows for a lot of flexibility and reach on the fretboard as it allows the fingers to make an arch.

    What is an unpopular/controversial opinion you have regarding the ukulele?

    Agreed as well! Similar to the uke play-along videos, not a lot of variety and it seems in these massive jams, everyone is limited to playing what's on the sheet in front of them, often C, G7, F, and Am. Not saying these are bad, just more variety and more effort into arranging should maybe be...

    Ukulele Friend store

    I was hanging out Peter Luongo and James and actually saw that uke at NAMM as well, really beautiful and unique! It has real gut strings, those really blew me away. The other thing is that as I was listening to it I was amazed by how much it projected considering the body is so small. Simon

    What is an unpopular/controversial opinion you have regarding the ukulele?

    Hey all, As the title says, what is a "hot take" or unpopular/controversial opinion you have about something related to the ukulele? I'll start: Ukulele play-alongs on YouTube can be fun to watch/play along with, but these videos don't really show you how to get better at uke on your own, how...
