I don’t usually repost other people’s articles, but when I do…..

Actually I love the way Kevin, of, writes. I just saw this article and thought I should point others to it.
Fishing for Ukulele Strings

Kevin is an avid ukulele player and an all around fun person to talk to. Make sure to check out the rest of his site after you read his article on fishing line ukulele strings

  1. Fascinating information, thank you for sharing it.

    Wow that’s some really interesting information. I liked the video comparison of D’Addario VS Aquila VS Seaguar fishing line sound test! I don’t have the best of ears but the fishing line actually sounded pretty damn good to me!

    This is pretty much a no-brainer!! My father and aunts (who are Rarotongans!!) have been playing the uku since they were kids, and all of their uku’s use fishing lines – because of cost and the ready availibility of fishing line in their village!! Just experiement to find the right sound is all they told me, I just wished that I learnt to play when I was a kid – but here I am as a 40year old learning to play – better late than never I say!! LOL

    Thanks for your kind words Tim. I must admit that I do get strange looks walking into Cabela’s and asking “Where’s your ukulele string section?”

  6. Spot on with this write-up, I actually believe this web site needs
    a lot more attention. I’ll probably be back again to see more,
    thanks for the advice!

  7. Social Media says:

    The bounty on each rat is directly linked to how difficult they
    are to kill, which in turn is connected to the Security Status of
    the system they are located in. You get easy instructions on exactly how
    to boost your Pay – Pal account without having to steal any money
    from them. You can also promote your site by joining
    social networks and adding a link to your site.
