Trying out a #tuner #app for the #Samsung #Gear #S3. Works just as good as a clip on tuner, but I guess it’s less accurate in a noisy environment. Me like!

Fishing line banjo strings

I broke yet another 1st nylgut string and replaced it by a 30lbs fluorocarbon fishing line.

Café Olvido

Yousician Ukulele Challenge: “Cafe Olvido” – full melody (lvl. 6). 

 Very mellow song that needed some electrifying.  Guitar Rig 5 provided the “Warm Twin Echos” preset and I took it with both arms :-b
