"Well,  not bad with lots of volume for such a tiny thing.  I guess the hollow neck connected to the body does help with that. They are around $100.00 and, for more money,  you can get optional pickup installed with endpin jack and…"

"Paul Stoddard, You've probably already made a decision, but I use Aquila strings on wooden ukes and Worths on my reso uke.  I have generic strings, whatever they had in the store, on my banjolele. "

" Here's my strap, made from a leather boot lace.  I wear it over my right shoulder, the same way I wear my mandolin strap. I always felt strange sitting down while the other guys were standing.  This is an early gig."

Cousin,

I am still looking for regular work. Craziest thing ever. I have never had trouble getting employment until late 2008. Strange times we are in.

All is well though. I am like Larry, Daryl and Daryl, from the Newhart Show. I will do just about anything for a buck and do. In my free time I am finishing up my wife's website up for her band. Then it is time for me to celebrate by taking some time with my guitar.

How is life with you and yours?

Robert

My guitar playing is so so. I have been spending all my time looking for work, soliciting for work and taking care of my wife and step daughter. I gave my Alvarez guitar to my step daughter...she plays all the time. I loaned out my classical guitar to a friend and I am left with my very first guitar, my Takamine Jasmine. I have started working on Need You Know by Lady Antebellum...I am hit or miss on practicing even though I try to get 10 minutes a day. Crazy because before getting married I was playing and practicing all the time.
