Did someone put a needle in the middle of a string to make it so? I always assumed they were not.
A really, really important aspect of playing uke is making sure your strumming technique holds as you get deeper and deeper into the fretboard. I found it extremely difficult to strum as far down on the fretboard as I needed to without losing the feel and power that I was used to using.
What about you…what is your uke strumming technique?

The US has long been a major arms supplier to Israel. But a senior defense official says President Obama has given the Israeli government the green light to restart exports of the F-35 combat jet. The F-35 program is being accelerated in response to increasing competition from the French and more stealthy fighter jets from Russia and the United States. It is also the first warplane approved by Obama for sale to Israel under his “Lavrov deal.” Netanyahu has been pushing for the transfer of the new aircraft.
The Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv announced on Monday that Israel would start exports of some 70 F-35 warplanes, along with spare parts and other military hardware, to an American firm, Lockheed Martin. The F-35 will be Israel’s newest aircraft, and it is designed to replace existing Israel Air Force aircraft.
The US embassy in Tel Aviv said Israel has the “full backing” for selling the F-35 fighter plane to the US. Defense Ministry Minister Moshe Ya’alon told Israel Radio that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed to sell the F-35 to Washington for $2.5 billion in 2012. Israel has already built F-16 air defense systems for use in war with Egypt and Syria. The F-35 is the US military’s first jet with the ability to fly off the carrier USS Nimitz in the Atlantic Ocean. If Israel sells enough jets it will probably increase the costs for US customers, making the F-35 more difficult to buy than any other Israeli military fighter. It will also give Israel a large arsenal of fighters that is more advanced than those it could possibly replace – including the F-16 and the A-10 Warthog.
