    When strumming/singing on solo ukulele, it's just me, so I like using my voice to approximate a guitar solo, or other signature lick in a song, since I don't usually have the uke chops to fingerpick it. Voice seems even more like an instrument to me then.

    Oh, I'm *OFTEN* in *THAT* situation myself young ukecaster! If I could pick as well as I've tried vocally imitating an electric guitar, I'd be up there with Clapton! lol

    The voice has the *potential* to be an instrument.

    Most people never achieve that.

    Another interesting perspective stillfreeda, and I agree that many people (including myself) never really learn to 'play it' properly.

    But if someone can't play, let's say, their violin, does that mean that the violin can't be deemed 'an instrument' until they do?

    I love these sorts of discussions and the fact that there are so many differing opinions on them. So interesting.

    Thanks for taking part.

    Have you seen Victoria Vox do her "mouth trumpet"? Totally cool, and what a great way to make it sound like you actually have a second instrument in the mix!
