    New Solo Ukulele Record

    Yes…the reverb in that cellar vault is stunning. Recordings are done with the phone, and the sound is not tampered with in any way afterwards

    Ukulele Improvisation - tenor uke tuned linear DGBE

    I tuned my cheapo Mahalo Java tenor to DGBE, and jammed away...strings are the four middle strings of a classical guitar set.

    Tenor ukulele turned into baritone - the inexpensive way

    I have never liked the tenor ukulele in GCEA tuning, which I have mentioned on this forum occasionally. I prefer DGBE, with low or high D. Lately, I have been watching youtube videos and reading about specially made strings for such tunings. However, the fact is that from a regular classical...

I miss him in here - he was a well of great...
