    playing without electricity

    I was curious if any of the players here have ever tried gigging with a uke totally with your voice and uke, sans any mics or amps or PAs, and what techniques you used? How did you play the clubs and venues and house concerts and jams and be properly heard ....Obviously it can be done. I've...

    Strange Stringing

    I bought an Amigo Tenor Uke (AMT 8) years ago, put it away in storage, and just now pulled it out. It has nylon strings on the 1st and 4th strings and wound ones on the 2nd and 3rd. I've tuned it like regular C-tuning but the middle strings are one octave lower. So, to use South Coast Uke's...

    Lone Star Uke Fest anyone?

    I forgot that it's this weekend! Can't make it this year, as I'm headed down to the South Texas Valley. I've missed every year so far. Hey, Ritata, Plano represent!

    chord D#(?) guitar to uke?

    That's not just D# (Eb). It's actually D#dim7 (Ebdim7). On uke, just slide it up a fret, 2323.

    Liebestraum No 3 / Dream of Love by Franz Liszt

    Nice! The uke sounds really cool -- like a 50s surf thing or Sleepwalk sound.

    Song Help Request Seeking standard C-tuned uke equivilants for three slash-chords

    Don't worry about the notes on the right side of the slash. They indicate that the chords are in inversion (not in root position), or indicate what the bass player should be doing. These inversions can be played on uke, but it is often easier to play them on guitar or piano, for example. For...

    Song Help Request Quizas, Quizas, Quizas HELP!!

    That's a nice version. I don't do it in the same key, but it's similar (and I sing which is why I changed the key). Initially I learned my version on guitar and transferred it over to uke, but I haven't worked all the cool stuff I see in the vid. No tabs -- it's all in my head and under my...

    My First All-Uke Set!

    I've been working up to it and finally decided to go for it at today's Potbelly gig. I used my Kala Archtop Tenor Uke and Lanikai O-8E (8-string uke). No mics, no amps, no guitars! Two-hour gig, no break, but I did stop and chat with a few folks. And I had to tune the 8er ever so often. In no...

    Song Help Request J'aime plus Paris by Thomas Dutronc - cover by Craftpaper

    That strumming style is called la pompe. The Djangobooks forums are a wealth of information on this style. Great song from a great CD and that uke cover is cool even though the uke is out-of-tune! That part you're asking about just sounds like eight-note strums -- swung a la mancouche.;)

    Let's talk about re-entrant d'gbe'!

    Aquila has a set of these for tenor (my fav uke size), and I'm thinking about stringing up a uke with this tuning. Lyle Ritz used it, but I'm not sure of others? So ... how about you? Have you used it? Do you know about those Aquilas or have you built your own set? Anything else I should know...
