I do not know who "they" are but I heard it said that musicians sometime see sound as a color. If that is true, what color would your favorite uke sound like? Mine would be a naples yellow (I like a bit bright but knocked down a little... if that makes sense) I think with a lean towards the warm earth tone of a yellow ochre. What about you?

A beautiful oceanic hue of green/turquoise. Of course, that might change with my mood.

Magenta!!!!. It's my favourite colour. And it makes me happy. So it would have to be that.

I was sort of looking for your favorite. I too think different songs vary such as maybe a bright yellow for ait she sweet compared to a smokey color for "summertime". I was just wondering what your favorite uke sounded like color wise. :)
