    Live Stream: Saturday, June 12th at 12:00pm EST (check your local time zone)


    Hey guys, we are back with Live Lesson EP031! This month’s topic is: Let’s Talk About UAS (Ukulele Acquisition Syndrome).

    Ever feel the urge to get another ukulele? Or are you unsure about what kind you should be looking for? In this session, we’ll discuss what I look for in new ukuleles and how I finally conquered that feeling for “just one more”.

    This month’s topic should stir up some great questions! So please post all you have below and I hope you guys join us for the live stream. 🙂



    Q: What happens in a live lesson, how long is it, and when does it occur?

    A: Live lessons are usually 30-45 minutes in length, but can extend until all questions are answered. The first 20 minutes will comprise of the lesson, while the next 10-25 minutes will be a Q&A session for premium members.

    Live lessons take place every second Saturday of the month at 12:00pm EST (check your local time zone).

    Q: Can I submit questions beforehand?

    A: Absolutely! Basic and premium members are welcome to post questions that are related to the topic in THIS thread.

    Q: Who can watch the live stream, how do I watch it, and how do I chat with Matt and other members?

    Q: I can’t make the broadcast. When will live streams be released publicly?

    A: The live lesson will be released for everyone to view on Monday following the broadcast (third Monday of the month). If you cannot make the broadcast, no worries; you’ll still be able to watch the lesson. Don’t forget that you can submit questions for Matt to answer beforehand (see the above FAQ).


    As is known by many, George Harrison was a huge ukulele fan for many years, in addition to being a great guitarist and composer. And son Dhani grew up with the huge collection of ukes that George had amassed. And has now given his own name to a uke released by Fender under the name: “Dhani Harrison ukulele”. The question is: for which target group is this uke intended? For the starter, given the price segment, or for the Harrison fans, who ‘must have’ such a copy? Maybe for both? I can already tell you that I have also overcome the feeling of ‘must have’, although my hands are itching 🙂 Kind regards, Dirk


    I proudly own 5 ukes lol! I have my original Kala Tenor that hangs on my living room wall, a Solid Wood Low G Tenor Kala, Solid Wood High G Concert Pono, Solid Wood Baritone Pono and a Flight Travel Soprano uke. I love all of them for their different sounds and uses. I think my most UAS purchase was when I was learning a song with some big stretch chords and I convinced myself I needed a concert size so it would be easier!😂


    Hi folks, I’ve been following Matt’s live stream. Was a lot of fun and considerations came along that I recognized myself in: 1: how many ukes do you need? In my case: After playing on an entry-level uke for a year, I was able to buy two high-quality ukes. The choice also fell on Kanile’a. Because of, and as Matt also mentioned: sustain, intonation, tone. And of course personal preference for sound color. I am immediately done with considerations for replacement or expansion of the uke collection. 2: The Fender ukes: also agree with Matt. This manufacturer is not really known as a renowned ukulele builder. But the Dhani uke remains a fun instrument, as a gimmick 🙂 Thanks Matt, for this meaningful livestream!
