View Full Version : UU Nostalgia and old uke strings

04-28-2011, 03:00 PM
All the old school UU folks seemed to have loads of fun and lots of laughs.

I was hoping we could have some of that too.

I was thinking if every person could send their old uke strings to hoosier hiver for the UWC, maybe they could get drunk one night and build a chord cylinder much like a MRI machine.

The basis is have a person stand up like in a phone booth. Make a chord cylinder out of plexiglass and fasten stings in chord patterns made from old uke strings sent to Hoosier Hiver. Position the cylinder around the person and start rotating the cylinder (don't rotate the person). Have that person put their fingers in postition to play chord progressions as the cylinder rotates around them.

Amplify the sound as needed and let people sing.

Put Cowbells in there too.

Youtube video collage the best of the best.

I hope this helps.

haha. yes. err.... like I said, I think its a project best suited for people who still like beer. I don't do that stuff anymore; but it gave me my hippie-mind.
