    It is a stretch to play “While my guitar gently weeps” on a concert size. Also, my fingers hit the body a lot for the last fast strumming part due to the RISA’s unique shape.

    Very nice Jiji, your choices are excellent, but I look at UAS as a positive thing. I played guitar for almost 50 years, then about 7 years ago I accidentally started playing uke when I retired, joined a seniors uke group and went through 16 ukes my first year, then culled them down to 4 of my favorites, now I'm up to 9, including custom mades and a Godin Multiuke that is great. I never touched my 4 guitars again and gave them to my nephew.

    But that's my light UAS story, my heavy story is that a year after starting uke, the leader of the group asked if anyone would like to take up the bass to fill in our sound, I discovered bass ukes and small electric bass guitars and went for it. Since then I'm up to 32 bass ukes/mini bass guitars between 21" to 25" scale, some I've even had converted from short scale electric guitars.

    Keep up the good work.

    Very nice. Your playing, the ukulele and the video cover. They all come together beautifully.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.
