    There is no fear from my end. I have sold two Martin from my collection and purchased four ukes this past month.

    But in saying that, I will never give away playing guitars/guitars, especially Martin guitars. I have worked too hard to get to where I am too let it all walk away. Uku's are just as exciting and sure has a place in my stable. Not to fear.

    It depends: does your amplifier go up to 11?

    Ukes got me into smaller guitars-

    which I found I actually play easier and faster then

    When you compare a baritone to a short scale small guitar the differences aren't that great then- 19 or 20 inch scale as opposed to 22 or 23"

    But I like each for what it is- I still like the popping bell tone of my porous Mahogany Hola soprano, although it's harder for me to play that small- Tenor's a good choice for my old feeble adult hands, that have had fingers broken, while still retaining most of the uke sound I love, and then with the option of high and low G. I play low G usually.

    Guitar is more mellow- and I play nylon classical guitars- but I think ukulele may be easier for quick song ideas, guitar for more elaborate composition. I tend to get on a chord and then do some fills with whatever notes my fingers then reach. There's a little more range with 2 extra strings, but a different kind of music than a uke tuning.

    Funny. All the guitar threads made me pick mine up and give it a whirl again… I put it back after a couple days. It just reminded my why I like uke.

    I like playing the guitar now only when I am playing with others in a band and someone is singing. Then I bash-strum my guitar to make noise.
