In a fun and creative way to engage with you guys, I asked for lightning round questions. And boy, did you guys deliver! In this week’s ukulele lesson, I’ll be answering 25 questions with special guest, Mike, from Uke Republic. Grab a snack and a drink. It’s going to take awhile 😁
Feel free to post questions and comments below!August 4, 2017 at 4:47 pm #13099john11Participant
Hi Andrew…couldn’t find the triplet on Uke RepublicAugust 4, 2017 at 4:55 pm #13100
Hi John, I’m not sure what you mean by that. Triplet’s were mentioned in reference to the strumming technique: triplet strum and the rhythmic value of a triplet. It has no relation to Uke Republic.August 4, 2017 at 8:05 pm #13102geneo1Member

Would less tension in a string be a sign of needing new strings?
Would a shifting pitch…like wavering between a F -F#-F (when the problem isn’t plucking too hard?) I’m asking for a friend. 😛

Hi Carrie, I’m not really sure. Sounds more like an issue with the uke. They can change strings and if the problem persists, then we def know it’s the uke.
Also guys, lets keep questions/comments related to the 25 questions from the video. We’ll def do another LR video in the future! Please post questions/comments with question # as a reference. For example:
My question is in regards to #22, etc.August 4, 2017 at 10:36 pm #13105lisathoytMember
Need help with rhythm also. Question 17

Bananas. Thanks for doing this. Very interesting too.August 5, 2017 at 4:12 am #13107chipkkMember
Bananas’ great questions asked and answered from all levels of playing.August 5, 2017 at 6:20 am #13108kayleighbParticipant
Thanks for this! Some really helpful nuggets in there 😀
I have a 2 fold question for the next round but can’t find the thread for it. I have a cheap Mahalo soparano uke which I bought just to test out if I enjoyed it or not. Turns out I do yay! So..
1. Would you recommend upgrading to a concert size – I notice some of the more advanced pieces I will run out of fretboard on the little soprano I have
2. Is there a concert size uke (Kala or otherwise) that you would recommend for beginners/intermediate level players that I could look to buy in the UK or get shipped over?August 5, 2017 at 9:06 am #13109bay1viewParticipant

Lisa, question 17 gets its own video 🙂 I’ll be working on that soon!
Save those questions Kay. I’ll make a new forum post for LR #2 in the future 🙂August 5, 2017 at 12:06 pm #13113lisadmhParticipant
Thanks for all these answers. Great stuff!August 8, 2017 at 8:48 am #13125meelorParticipant
John, you were doing the same thing I was doing. You may have figured this out by now.
For anyone watching the video from within this thread. If you click on the “Watch on Youtube” button in the video window, all of the links will be in the comments of the video on youtube.
