    Thanks for the info on the tenor guitar Bevomu.
    I hardly ever play my guitars since getting into the ukulele.
    I have done this song on the bari uke but it is one that relies on the lower notes moving about.

    Alternative tuning on a guitar for an instrumental... does not get going until 2 minutes in.
    Worth the watch if just to catch the movements of the eyebrows.

    I admire those who can comfortably switch between playing the uke and guitar. I've neglected my guitar since picking up the uke and at times some chords that would once fall naturally under my fingers need a little thought now.....its more to do with size and spacing than the actual chords grrrrrrr. I suppose its just a case of keeping your hand in regularly with both Instruments but my obsessional tunnel vision of the uke won't allow it !! Lol

    Great thread by the way Birdy, I'm sure I can rustle something up for ya.

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

    Damn surprised I have anything in video form! Hehe my last dance with music before the ukulele was electronic. I used Reason 4 and a 1st gen M-Audio OXYGEN 8 to dabble in various genres of music. This was my first try at dark ambiance, dark noise, soundscape whatever you want to call it. The video was made to show a few friends what was happening in my game the song just fit it too well.

    Now one might argue was I playing an instrument? Yes what I played, which honestly here wasn't very much was heavily processed after being played. Besides wanting to learn to play the theme to Bobs burgers I really only bough my first ukulele to add sounds to get my butt back into electronic music. Somehow got caught up in the ukulele full bore.

    I did just a month or two back see an add in guitar center for a used QuNeo for $140ish got there and they were selling the last new unit for the same price so. http://www.guitarcenter.com/Keith-Mc...id^41539417242

    This little sucker is really a midi controller just as my Oxygen 8 is though that is styled like a conventional keyboard, is it an instrument? Haven't dont much with it yet. While it is a serious piece of kit it needs a few hours learning and programing it to do what I want.

    I called the piece "breath" Oldsk001 is my old youtube tattoo channel.

    This space reserved for a smart or witty comment or a famous quote. It may also be used to promote my accomplishments should I ever accomplish anything worth sharing.

    Can't see it because you have it set to be private.

    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 would love to hear you blow some wind Geoff

    Oh you know what I mean. I don't think this thread should stop at stringed instruments. Do you BEV?

    Well, the kazoo is questionable but I would listen to it if thats what you've got

    The kazoo is damnable . However, needs must when the devil vomits in your fish kettle.
