Any Ukulele Players Out There?

Posted by CelticRose on Saturday, March 27, 2010

Been playing my uke the past few days-arranging Irish pieces for it in tablature-it's my main "take anywhere "instrument as nobody wants to mess with it as uke is considered to be a "toy" by most and in addition,they are sturdy built-no worrying about being knocked out of kilter or anything like that. And they are oh so portable!

    Fiddle wise I'm getting some practice in today on my 3/4. Unexpected bills popped up,so taking the 7/8 in will be after next payday.  Also getting mando playing in. (amazing how mandolin playing helps me memorize tunes to play on fiddle).....a 2 for 1 deal.

    Been enjoying the California spring-planted bell peppers,cornflower & assorted flower seeds. Good to feel the sun on your skin (it's t shirt weather!) and see the colorful flowers.  The carpenter bees are back & all abuzz harvesting pollen. I need to set up an area for them so they have a home-there's some old logs I can arrange so they'll start using that & plant some echineceas & the like around it so it's convenient for them.

I've been wanting a baritone uke for a while- I'm a guitar player, and the chord names as well as the chord shapes are like the top four strings of a guitar.

right-and with a guitar background myself,I've been tempted towards a tenor or a baritone so I hear ya-Amazon can have some really good deals on those at times.

I bought my wife one for her birthday in Feb. WE love it. She has some guitar background and within minutes was playing songs with more changes than she ever did on the guitar. Very fun.
