    I can reach A2 to F5. In HS I always sang alto in choir but as Ive gotten older my vocal range has dropped. That is typical. Funny think is I lead the music at church and I have to fake that Im singing most the time because I can't get any where near those soprano melody notes.

    This has been a fun little thread. Thanks to Val for keeping us hanging on the edge of our seats to hear the new baritone. And its been quite helpful to have Ubulele here for the education and so willing to help.

    Going to be a while before I get this bouzouki/baritone uki; still waiting to confirm details. This is what it looks like though ...shbs21054.jpg.
    And I STILL haven't done the vocal range test yet, Linda ... been out most of the day. Not sure it'll work at the moment as I seem to have developed a cough ... perhaps I can find the vocal range for that?

    We just tested Tiffany and while I've forgotten the exact notes, she fits somewhere between mezzo soprano and soprano. She said she always struggled in choir because she couldn't quite reach the high notes that sopranos needed to get to, but there was no way she could sing low enough for mezzo soprano parts.

    Maybe this will help her.

    I only joined choir at school to get me out of a maths lesson once a week........It didn't last long until the music teacher outed me as a 'growler' and slung me out !!

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

    (It doubles as a lethal weapon and a frying pan!) If you would like to hear what it sounds like - and who wouldn't after all that discussion? - I have posted a song in the "Misfits" department.

    Val, That is surprisingly big. I wasnt expecting that! Is it comfortable too play? Is that body wood? If you decide you have no use for it you could turn it into a clock ;-)

    Yes, it actually IS quite comfortable to play. I asked to have a strap button put on at the bottom because I thought that, having a round body, it would be quite difficult to keep hold of; but if I hold it at the right angle and sort of brace it with my knee it more or less stays in position without a strap. And, yes, it is wood ... I have no idea what sort; it might even be just plywood for the body (it's quite light to hold.)
