I know. I know. I still owe you a banjolele post. I’m procratinating, but also not procrastinating. I didn’t use my usual strings, and those fuckers are taking FOREVER to settle. Not sure yet if the tuning issues I’m experiencing are the uke or the strings, and so want to withhold my banjolele thoughts until […]Read More New Track: In an Ideal World
So, I’ve been learning to crochet. I’m not sure what triggered the impulse, but it seemed like it would be an inexpensive new hobby, so I went with it. I’ve only been at it for about a week, and what I never expected was how similar it was going to be to learning to play […]Read More Crochet, it turns out, isn’t all that different from guitar. Huh.

I’m trying the mixtape thing again. I did it once before and it sort of flopped. I ended up deciding it was too much work-at least, too much work to do on a schedule.

They’re staying as is because to be flawed is to be alive and I’m not going to try to hide that, but they do make me cringe a little, no kidding. Have you ever had a […]Read More Hiatus is almost over…probably…?
I’ve been keeping relatively busy in ukulele land. Mostly this means I’ve been parting with ukes I no longer play and deciding whether each of the items I’ve parted with is something to just let go, or replace. I sold on my Snail uke because it was just sonically too similar to my Ibanez, so […]Read More New Toy: Cordoba 22S
Today’s DIY music project was to add a pickup to my Kmise Ukulele. I have an Ibanez I favor for most things, but the Kmise I’ve set up as my go-to Low G uke. I have a Rubin set up at Low G as well, but I just like the overall tone of the Kmise […]Read More Joyo Ukulele Pickup
