    Default Anybody in the Toronto (Canada) area?

    I'm a beginner uke player in Mississauga and I was just wondering if there was anybody else in my area? I'm also looking for uke lessons but I'm managing really well with ukulele underground's forums and videos.

    I wish! I lived in toronto for a year and a half, and I grew up in thunder bay. But I'm in Alberta now. If I still lived there I'd hop on a train and we'd totally jam

    Hey! I'm in Brampton. I don't know of too many uke players around here. There is a tiny ukulele group on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2252585487

    There are only a handful of members there. Oh, I just got my cousin playing the uke so there's one more in the T-dot. So that makes what, 8? Hahaha!

    Default Baby Toronto Uker

    Hello fellow Torontonians/Ontarians/Canadians! :P

    Just started learning the uke yesterday so it would be awesome to learn from you seasoned peeps whenever. Does anybody have a digital tuner? I can't seem to tune my ukulele properly.

    Oh yeah, i live around the North York area.

    Question ukulele newby in Brant

    Hi. I am retired, with no musical training, and I walked into a music store in Brantford Ontario one day last Spring and bought a cheapie uke. That was all they had. Thanks to You Tube's inspirational performers, and the internet, I have been able to have a lot of fun. My enthusiasm makes up for a lack of, ahem, talent. It is too bad that there are not better ukuleles available in more music stores. I bought a baritone uke a few months later, and when I was visiting family in Ottawa, I purchased an Oscar Schmidt concert soprano. All these ukes work, but they either buzz or the action wrecks me.
    The reviews on You Tube are helping me. I plan to visit the RISA factory in Germany in May/June and am considering a tenor uke stick. That way I can practice quietly, or play with more volume outside. I live in the country where that is possible. Any suggestions as to what strings would be a good match? I have been reading that fluorocarbon strings (what is commonly put on the RISA) is really fishing line.
