Thank you Vinnie! verry kind of you to say so, every time i try the uke im struggeling whit the tuning ,because of the short scale it tends to sound so high everytime, i tryed this time whit open D tuning, ADF#A, im trying to get it lower to get a more bass like sound ,but i have not got that right Yet! But this ime im verry happy whit the metal strings they at least give the best sliding sound !! Greeeeeeettssszz On Ye !
