    Uke Heads - New Collaborative Album with James Hill

    LOL. Yeah, very surprising that people seemed upset without actually looking into the project and process. Those of us that participated will never forget the experience. It looks like we might have a Uke Heads 2.0. Stay tuned and maybe join us.

    Uke Heads - New Collaborative Album with James Hill

    This project was well worth it and here is a short video of our celebration at Heidi Swedberg and Daniel Wards house practicing in New Mexico last October. Everyone who participated in this Uke Heads Project considers it an incredible opportunity and we will have this community for the rest of...

    Uke Heads Album Release

    As many of you might already know, James Hill released his Uke Heads Album last week. This was a real labor of love for all of us that played on the album. We collaborated for almost 2 years on Zoom. Please take a listen if you can. My favorite is "Our Lady of the Snow."...

    Workshop Online ‘fundamental chord theory’ course kicking off this Saturday!

    I purchased my ticket last year but didn't get a follow-up email. Are you sending something out before then?

    The 2024 NAMM Show will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center January 25-28

    It is better than the Elite in my opinion. See my comments after the Uke Republic video. Plays like butter.... (or whatever great metaphor you have. ) Having seen the Elite in person I think this is way better at a fraction of the cost.

    The 2024 NAMM Show will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center January 25-28

    I managed to snag this one as soon as the video was over. It sounds terrific and The Uke Republic set up can't be beat. I did change the strings to Uke Logic, but boy this one is sweet. The black dog hair mahogany has been on my bucket list for years. I was crushed when they stopped making the...

    Thinking about getting a pad

    I use the iPad Air which Is about 10+ inches, and it works great especially if you get a donner foot pedal or something similar to change pages. Apple also has a Refurbished section on their website. I usually look there first to see if there are any good deals. They all have a full warranty...

    Thinking about getting a pad

    I create a library for each venue or group that I am in and save the playlists there. Very convenient. forScore does have a lot of features that aren't apparent at first glance. I annotate music all the time with my Apple Pencil. I know that there are cheaper pens that also work. I have also...

    Thinking about getting a pad

    I use the 10-inch in landscape and portrait mode. ForScore allows scrolling, but I prefer portrait mode. When I first switched to iPad, (Which I already owned) I just bought forScore and a Donner foot pedal and used my old music stand until I found a decent cheap iPad stand for around $30.

    Thinking about getting a pad

    The forScore app with my iPad and the Donner foot pedal for page turning is a dream. It's a full-featured app that also works on my Desktop. I easily create setlists for each group I am in and it also remembers what metronome to use based on how you set it. I also just discovered that it can...

    Thinking about getting a pad

    I am actually using the smaller iPad Air and it's working fine for me. I have bad eyesight and it seems to be easier to read music on the iPad than sheet music. I use the forScore app and a Donner foot pedal for page turning. I also have a fairly inexpensive iPad stand that folds up nicely. It's...

    Hello from California

    Thank you. I snagged my Pono Baritone during lockdown on Reverb. It was barely played by a guitarist in Ohio who thought he wanted to play uke but changed his mind. It sounds amazing and I love the radiused fretboard. It's so easy to play. I currently play with a small ensemble group led by...

    Hello from California

    I have caught the UAS bug but the keepers are 2 Ken Franklin Tenors (high G Low G) and a pair of long-neck concerts made by Hank Johnson (Kimo Ukulele) (High G Low G), an Anuenue Lion and Moonbird Soprano and a Pono Baritone. I have a few others that aren't customs that I purchased early on and...

    Hello from California

    Hi everyone. I started playing ukulele about 5 years ago. After a few false starts, I discovered James Hill's Ukulele Way which gave me a better structure and foundation to learn and I have never looked back. I look forward to learning more here. I like tinkering with simple set-ups and...
