In that case you'd have to call a bass a 'bass guitar' and a piano a 'concert grand piano'

Abbreviations exist to make life easier/

Those aren't pointless.

Also I mainly meant word abbreviations. Like "uke", for instance.

It's an abbreviation that I personally find annoying. Do you call trombones "troms"? Cellos "chells"?

I asked my son he said nothing but he just asked me he wants a psyachatrist (spelling?) Because he heard voices calling out his name. What a freak.

I've had one for quite a while, haven't played it for ages and bought new strings yesterday - it's great for jamming out a few chords when the guitar's too big

You're quite the grammar Nazi, aren't you? How does that go over with friends?

I'm assuming that was directed at me? I talk to my friends. You know, out loud. Surprisingly, people make less grammar mistakes when speaking.

Also, I fixed your grammar and spelling for irony

I play the uke, I inherited one when my son played one in the 5th grade. I seriously want to play more uke and mandolin this year, along with bass.

And the grammar nazis and offenders need to take a chill pill. Seriously.

I guess we all have our pet peeves.

For example, I hate when people constantly correct me, you know?

Well then, guess it's a good thing I don't do that, huh? Don't worry, I'm only doing it in this thread because I'm a fan of irony I won't continue to after this.

I believe I'm the only one, and I didn't think I was being that aggressive. In fact, it was only intended to be a simple statement. I wasn't planning on expanding on it until someone responded to it.

It's hard for me to play it because of the intervals, but I'll probably try it again when I'm in college. My friend has an acoustic-electric one, and we distorted it. Pretty crazy.

Yeah, it's really fun to mess around with actually. I have this really cheap one which costs about £15, it goes out of tune easily aswell, but fun while it lasts.

While we're on the subject, I'd recommend people listen to 'Beirut' for some lovely ukulele music.

I bought a reallllly cheap ukulele kit and I've been making (painting, customising etc..) it - I expect really poor playability but it's a pretty fun project.


HELLO!

#39
I do play a decent bit. I bought one a while back and I make sure to put practice time into it.

I enjoy it, but I want another one. The one I have is concert size, I would love a tenor (and I don't want the G to be raised the octave. I want it down the octave)

but It's fun.

I spend most of my time with it playing songs by Tiny Tim (and by songs by Tiny Tim, I mean songs that he covered, but still)
