Ukes

Posted on March 20, 2015 at 10:21pm 6 Comments

Going to start making very beautifull 15 inch concert ukes...question for anybody out there...what strings should i use...nylon?? or do i use something else??? aswell tail pieces..what do people use for Ukes thats simple:) anybody who would like to respond that would be great..

.I might just make them through box necks ..so the strings a directly in the wood

Melodeeman:) Cheers

its like a glue..apply it on the wood surface  to use..apply lightly all over surface area of image ...then use a  image without text...(cause it will be backwards) FACEdown....press it until very flat..let dry for 1 hr...then place a very damp wood on the paper for 10 minutes..then gently rub with the clothe on the paper that's wet (lightly) it should remove the pulp off leaving the ink directly on the wood..like those tattoos when we use to lick them on..lol...........great for a vineyard…

Thanks Man for the Comments, well you ask me,I do like your recording stuff,but when i listen whit my JimmyMc Carty Ears:   Nice Intro! (For me;could bee longer the revers bit,and fade slowly to the Background) Good Beat! Nice Dubble Bass Cool change in the CBG effect color on the Gitaar ,the Old Mic Effect, does the trick,but the Vocals can bee a bit more on the front,your singing something let us hear it! then you get the story better, What it is about the busker girl, and why you sing about her, like it like it a lot!! thanks! Melo!
