    Make it Snappy

    a little chord prog I came up with on the concert uke, using a short, sharp strumming pattern, strumming further down the fingerboard than usual which increases the snappiness and makes for a brighter sound Chords are E7, A7, E7, A7, C7, D7, C7, with a slide to C at the end...

    Anyone play Kalimba?

    My partner randomly bought me one recently,a 17 kwy hollow board from Amazon. Arrived in tune and sounds great. Playing kalimba is quite a challenge though . Here I'm playing Brahms's Lullaby on it. https://youtu.be/IkdoubKuk9k

    Baritone in re-entrant tuning

    I restrung my Brunswick baritone to re-entrant dGBE, just changing the bottom two strings from a couple of spare Aquila sets I have. Now it sounds more like a uke and no squeaky wound strings, yay https://www.instagram.com/p/CCqj_w2gCII/?igshid=11ri8bu1v55tu

    Bit of fun with SpongeBob

    Just had a play with my son's SpongeBob pineapple soprano. It is pretty bad intonation wise but good fun. I tuned to old soprano tuning, half a tone lower

    Clarinet anyone?

    Anyone play this wonderful but frustrating instrument? Had it a few years now and can get a tune out of it. Which is more than I can say for flute!

    Fly Me to the Moon, two ways

    The advantage of baritone ukulele

    So I was reading a blues turnaround TAB from a guitar mag and I could not fret the B7 chord cleanly, my pinkie kept buzzing because its soft and the strings on my guitar feel like cheese wires. So I tried the same on my baritone uke, nailed it! The thing is I could use the same chord shapes on...

    High D on baritone?

    Ok so my bari is tuned DGBE, low D, but I think I prefer reentrant otherwise it just sounds like a small guitar. The thing is how widely available are low D sets? The other thing is I have 2 spare sets so I could use one of those for the high D. Would it be best to use the high e from one of the...
