This is a podcast for players and teachers of the ukulele to improve their skills at doing those things. I cover all sorts of things that I think are interesting and helpful on my journey to become a better uke teacher/player. Sometimes I'll be interviewing great teachers and players, other times I'll just be sharing insights and tips that can help you become a better musician.

    I sat down with Joe at one of the busiest events of the year, Ukulele Festival Hawaii. This was from July, 2019.


    He's a great player and teacher, but he also makes a great ukulele. We talked about all sorts of things from the beginning of Kanile'a to the different ways ukuleles react to different strings.

So many light bulbs

I am really enjoying Abe's podcast. He manages to share so many good tips and trcks from himself and his guests, but the episode with Jim D'Ville was just very special. There were so many lightbulbs going on that I was nearly reaching for the sunglasses. Keep up the goodwork Abe and keep the guests coming please.
