Hey UUers! Today is Saturday and that means another episode of Uke Minutes!

Uke Minutes 73 - Slack Key Tuning (http://ukuleleunderground.com/2009/12/19/uke-minutes-73-slack-key-tuning/)

In this episode, Aldrine shows one of the easiest and most common open tunings for ukulele (Drop G); but there are many, many other Slack Key tunings out there. Play around with this one for now, see what else you can do (can you figure out minor and seventh chord shapes?? :D), and let us know what you get! Questions, comments, suggestions, thoughts, Christmas wishes? Post them all below!

The real power of this technique is when you use it on a Baritone Uke and go with drop/open D,G or C tuning for some slide blues guitar.... Someone should do a video of this.... The cool thing is that the fingerings on the fret board stay the same...it just the names of the chords that change.......

A quick tuning tutorial followed by an explanation of slide and blues technique and a chord handbook offered as a dvd or cd and sold on the UU Store for 5.00 would be a great thing.....
