10 Ukulele Blogs to check out

I guess it just makes sense that someone who blogs about ukuleles also finds himself subscribed to quite a few ukulele blogs.  One of the best parts of my day is checking those for new posts.

I've assembled a list of my 10 favorite ukulele blogs that you should check out and subscribe to.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!  Here they are in no particular order....




1. Uke4U - on this blog you'll mostly find tabs and tutorials.  They also created a pretty sweet app called "Learning Ukulele in 7 days".  The ukulele tabs on this blog are beautifully arranged and very easy to follow along with.

2. Antebellum Instruments - Ok, so not a 100% ukulele blog.  They fix up some REALLY cool pre-WWII instruments and one of the highlights of my day is checking for new uke arrivals.

3. Ukulele Review - tons of great reviews and articles!

4. Got A Ukulele - Barry Maz does a tremendous job on this blog.  Tabs, charts, helpful ukulele links, interviews, tools, etc.  He's also written some very nice ukulele e-books. 

5. The Ukulele Restoration Barn - Another blog where you can follow the adventures of a ukulele luthier.  Pretty interesting to see these old ukes getting fixed up.  Mostly banjo ukulele fix ups on this one.

6. The Ukaholic - John Bianchi's blog.  This guy seems to know everything in the world about any given banjo uke.

7. Ukulele Tricks - a "how to play" sort of blog.  Very useful tips and info here, especially for beginner's. 

8. Unofficial Kamaka Ukulele Blog - Very interesting blog for Kamaka fans.  If you don't know anything about Kamaka...do yourself a favor and check this blog out.

9. Ukulele Play! - all sorts of good stuff here.  Tabs, info, tips, etc.  These guys also put on Utah's Uke Fest

10. Fountain of Uke - tutorials, news, and all around good info.

  3. ADM Soprano Ukulele from Bizarkdeal
    Less than $30

    I love this ukulele and it's perfect for my daughter! She's been wanting one just like her grandpa and this definitely was the highlight of her day. I love the baby blue color and the fact that everything was included with this order. The tuner works great but the only issue I had was that the back piece that covers battery, wouldn't fit on there properly once the battery was in it. I had to rig that shut, but it didn't effect the function of the tuner. We are very thankful that this was included because the ukulele definitely needed tuning and I would t of known how to do it without it. The strap, guitar picks and extra replacement string is also a huge deal for us. With my daughter being a beginner, having these extra backups are always a plus. The size is perfect and it seems to be made with top quality materials and built to last. I'm very pleased with the appearance, sound and functionality of everything included in our order and we look forward to the beautiful music that my daughter will learn to make with her new ukulele!
