    Video This Kid is Amazing

    A cross between Jake and Tommy with the passion to boot. If Feng’s not already playing live shows, he’s ready. Thanks for sharing.

    Classical Playing Classical Music-Linear or Re-Entrant, which is best?

    I’ve only played classical with reentrant tuning since that’s what I was playing at the time, as taught to me by an extremely talented classically trained guitarist. The instructor was always so laid back when I’d ask questions like that. As long as I had proper technique (and didn’t use a uke...

    Uke Tech Support Replacment latch for Oahu Tenor Case

    Andrew at the Ukulele Site is great with this sort of thing. If they don't have an extra latch laying around, I'm sure he'll be able to get you in touch with Oahu.

    Lovely as always, Dave. The magic you bring shines through, even if it is just a little guitar on our little guitar forum. :)

    Tips, Tricks, Techniques Fingerpicking Pinky Finger for Stability?

    I was also taught not to use the pinky as an anchor and find it freeing not to. I was taught every complicated pattern my instructor threw at me. tYou’re in good form Super Dave.

    Beginner First Day beginner!

    First off, welcome to the forum. I’m not sure what you’re asking, but it would help to know what uke you have and what this sensation of having your “fingers caught” means. It could be any number of things. Maybe your action is set too high. Where did you buy your uke and did they do a proper...

    Video 3 ukes comparison

    It’s hard to get that classic Martin sound out of your head when comparing these. However unfairly, I found myself using that as a baseline while listening to the others. On second listen through I was better able to allow myself to hear more of the true nature of each uke, and I have to say...

    Review Southern Cross concert Banjo review

    What impresses me more, far beyond the considerations Jim and I have already stated, is Dennis' receptivity and willingness to look into available armrests on the market, and ultimately create an armrest from scratch at the suggestion of the OP. That's the kind of customer service you don't see...

    Review Southern Cross concert Banjo review

    For a luthier built instrument? I think you need to define that question more clearly. Worth is something that's a personal thing and often debated on every forum I've ever been associated with. The bigger question is what does worth mean to you? Is it construction? Attention to detail or extras...

    Uke Tech Support Open strings out of tune with closed strings

    Another thing the OP may benefit from: If you don’t play open strings, this won’t be an issue. I was always taught to not play open strings. Although I don’t recall the reason the instructor gave, I do recall doing some rewriting with songs that incorporated them. Just saying, it’s not the end...

    Review Outdoor v. Enya v. Fluke Tenors

    Thanks for putting together this well thought out comparison. The chart is quite helpful in seeing how each measures up, and confirms my thoughts about one day acquiring an Outdoor uke.
