    Default seasonistas play other instruments

    ?

    anyone interested in having a place to go if you wanna share non-uke vids with your fellow seasonistas?

    I just got a tenor guitar, i love it!

    and i know some other seasonistas are getting or thinking of getting guitars

    plus pa plays double bass............ wonderfully!

    i'd like to share my tenor geeeeeeetar stuff with my seasons pals, and i'd like to see what my seasons pals get up to when they play instruments other than uke

    i know there is a guitar forum here on UU, but i wondered if we could use a MULTI instrument space, right here on the seasons

    if anyone thinks it's a good idea, then post your non-uke vids here

    if everyone thinks it's a rubbish idea this thread can just sink like a stone and we can pretend it never happened

    although i'll probably write a song about how sad that'll be... i'll write it on my tenor guitar

    Bevomu - I'd like to know more about your tenor guitar.
    Brand? How much? Where from? Steel strings? Tuning? etc
    And I look forward to hearing it some more.

    I used to take videos of my open mic performances back when I played guitar but most of them were either rubbish or on Facebook.

    Here's me and my mate Danx jamming a Wolfmother song though. Normally Danx would play bass and our mate Tom would go on drums but Tom wasn't in that night, so Danx drummed. He dropped a stick during the solo which put me off but it was still fun.

    Other songs I enjoyed playing with those two were "I Wanna Be Your Dog" and "Molly's Chambers". Sadly not got any videos of those.

    thank you pa, i'd love to tell you more about my tenor guitar!

    because I love it and wanna talk about it!

    it's got steel strings, tuned dgbe like a baritone uke

    it's an ashbury, same make as my baritone uke, I also have a concert uke in that brand

    it cost me 189 which I think is about 370 Australian dollars

    I ordered it from scayles music in Edinburgh, they switched the strings to dgbe for me, and added an extra strap pin at the heel, it already had one at the tail

    the scale is 23 inches, and the body is a bit bigger than a baritone uke body

    it was the cheapest tenor I could find, I didn't wanna spend a squillion quid on an instrument just to try it out, really, but I LOVE it! it has a satin, open pore sort of finish, and... it's dreamy!

    the precise model is ashbury AT-40

    so good to revisit that vid!

    thanks for posting it, that's just the sort of thing i'd love us to be able to collect together in one place

    so if you swing by this thread you know you will see your seasonista pals rockin' some non-uke instruments

    yeah

    of course people don't have to rock out they can classical out or country and western out or whatever!

    I've always dabbled with stringed Instruments from as early as I can remember. Lol

    The first pic I was playing a Hofner bass replica (badly) at a pub gig in Northolt, Middx (notice the keith Richards fag in mouth touch) the Irish pub landlord 'Pat' paid us in booze so we were more pissed than the audience and in the second pic a guitar way back in the 80s.(I only ever played rhythm in bands though)

    Booze and partying way too much hindered me from mastering either Instrument to a good standard and I hadn't played any Instrument for at least a decade until I discovered the Uke about two and half years ago.

    It seems everyone's trying to play the ukulele like someone else............the only real way is your own way.

    Ukulele is the only stringed instrument I play. The rest are wind powered in one form or another:

    Recorders in various sizes up to contrabass, harmonicas in a variety of keys, keyless wooden flute, several whistles in keys ranging from G to high D, concertina. I've just ordered a low D whistle and am waiting for the email telling me it's on its way.

    I've been playing recorder on and off since primary school, harmonica since my teens (again on and off), whistles and concertina a good few years before I took up ukulele.

    In the band I play in I mostly play harmonica, flute and tenor & bass recorder. We are a folk band and play mostly for ceilidhs. Harmonicas are good for quicker dance tunes and I play flute or recorder for slower ones like waltzes. I do occasionally play ukulele but not all that much but I sing with my uke at local folk clubs and open mics.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing
