Inspired by the classical ukulele thread, my thoughts went to Sam Muir whose website hasn't been updated in years I think. I purchased my Yorkie because the Luthier was recommended on Sam's Page. Something that stuck with me is Sam Muir's adjuration to play quiet. Around the forum people are often talking about how to get louder and louder, so quiet is quite a change. For no coherent reason whatsoever I played the first two measures of "the imperial march" and then softly played themes and variations using some mode patterns, some E Hungarian Minor and some natural harmonics on the 7th and 12th frets. Juxtaposed to the soft picking, I altered the dynamic with a simple minor 2-5-1 of F#ø, B7, E13. As per usual I was unhappy with the chord quality of the E. I have a sound in mind for the E but I can never quite find it. I think the sound is a 7 chord and I tried many varieties. I also tried other qualities. For example, I tried an add9, 7sus4, m11, 6 chord. Perhaps it is better this way. As Oscar Wilde once said: the only thing worse than not getting what you want is getting what you want.
