Started a new thread as the other one is going to get lost in chat.

Place to share tips, songs, websites, compare prongs, etc.

My strumming sounds a bit tinny - debating upgrading my strings to Aquila - anyone done this to their cheapy and did it really make that much difference? Also anyone got a good strap that doesn't require any hole drilling - my boobage makes me struggle to hold it sometimes (not that im bragging) grin

Hello! Can I join in? I got a ukulele for my birthday last week and have been obsessively printing music off the internet since; I've got about a billion cheesy tunes now grin

Learning a new schema - I am attempting <drum roll> fingerpicking

oooo I attempted fingerpicking to play leonard cohen hallelujah but then decided to just play it with a random strumming pattern instead. I am going to download fairytale ofnew York and practise it for xmas when dc go back to school. I am ace now at somewhere over the rainbow and hallelujah and can also do fun we are young grin. Some just have two many chord in formy liking - I don't like them barre jobbys.

Hello! Oldish thread I see but is anyone still around?

I bought a ukulele today with Xmas/birthday money from my grandma. I've tuned it (using an app on my iPod grin) and looked at a few chords for somewhere over the rainbow (the Israel Kamakawiwo'ole version is one of my favourite songs ever)

I'm so happy grin

Hello fgrin

I managed to keep my uke hidden until my birthday earlier this month.

I've memorised a few chords and am really enjoying it!
