    To uke or to guitalele?

    Wow… THANKS. I already thought were a lot of options, but Ive never heard of the octave uke, and don’t know much about very much about the baritones & bass types yet. I’m very impressed with your knowledge and thanks again!!!

    To uke or to guitalele?

    Thanks I’ll try that tuning after we record. The low voice guitar sound is fine for now & I have a set of strings for that tuning.( A-a) the neck was already off when I got this cheap thing so I think I’ll try them. Is it the one that starts at capo 5 guitar and thus limited bass wise. Sorry...

We were just too tinny and twangy when I played a tenor...

    To uke or to guitalele?

    I used to play rhythm guitar for the band I’m in and Last spring I bought a tenor uke & fell in love with the sound and the tuning. It seems I finally had a style that I was lacking on guitar. The band has evolved and now we have a banjo player, a mandolin & our lead guitar player is on a...
