New Comm!
Wasn't sure if this is allowed, but didn't have any rules saying it wasn't so!

I've started a new Ukulele Comm, since this one seems to be slightly dead.

JOIN! The plan is to have jam sessions and to basically talk about all things Ukulele!

Hello!  I just joined and wanted to fling an introduction onto the forum.

I come from a musical family, play piano and sing (mezzo soprano range).  I wanted to learn guitar but my glass wrist would not manage the neck. 

I played a soprano ukulele for a few years and when the poor thing cracked, I went to a used music store and found a cheap baritone ukulele.  It appears to have been handmade somewhere in Central America, and it's a precious thing to me now.  I had no idea when I first picked it up that the baritone is basically the bottom 4 strings of a guitar! 

The band that I'm in, which is run by a friend of mine, is on hiatus while my friend's house gets major repairs.  But I still play my baritone a bit and sing to myself and my lovebird.  :)  We mostly play middle eastern music, usually Turkish or Egyptian.   

Oh, and I like to garden. 

Ok, nice to meet you all!

Hello! :]

I really want a great quality ukulele but I'm slightly overwhelmed by all these brands that I'm hearing.

I'll like recommendations, opinions, reviews, links, videos of you?  etc.

Budget will be around $200-$400 (more or less).
I've played a Lanikai & Kala concert.
Both are nice but I think I want something larger AND louder.
A loud/bright sound, you know?

This Kala that I'm borrowing is pretty sweet and I'm trying not to get attached. Now that I have to babysit.. I'll be able to save up for one for me :D!!

So yeah, TENOR? I like gcea tuning ..

I was thinking maybe this mainland uke?

okay so I just started playing the uke, I got it (a fluke) this past christmas so I've been playing for maybe 8 months? I've never played an instrument before, except I would sing and stuff.

Anyway me and my friend helen who lives far away make music by recording stuff to our computers, and then we send it to the other person and record something over it, and back and forth like that.


that is us. I would really appreciate if you listened and told me what you think!

Hello! I just joined the comm, so I thought I'd better introduce myself.

I'm Lisa, I'm from the UK and I just bought a Ukulele today! I'm so excited! I have absolutely no idea how to play it, but I can't wait to start learning. It's such a fun little instrument and it sounds of happy.

hi there! i'm a new member, and i have some simple questions!
i have a beautiful soprano ukulele,
and i'm finally getting around to investing in a case for it.
i want a hard case, preferably not black.
(I'm picky, i know.)
i saw a swell tweed one just about everywhere, but someone around here already has that.

does anyone know where i can get a hard-case? if so, an old, vintage one- if possible.

Hello, I need some help
Do you have any good resources online that you have found to help you learn how to play the Uke? I have always had love in my heart for all stringed instruments and nothing would please me more than to be able to conquer my impatience and fear of failure, to persevere and master just one instrument. I have a Purple Fluke and it's beautiful and lovely and it should be making music. I am at the moment trapped in a very small town with very limited resources so I will not be able to take lessons more than likely. I do have the summer off however and I am determined to do something with this time.
Any ideas and help would be great, we are currently looking for new jobs and a relocation and as soon as I get to a city with more than just a Safeway, I will look for lessons but until then I want to at least feel like I am moving in the right direction.

Tips? Tricks? Websites?

Thanks guys!
