    Default Campanella style anyone?

    If you don't know what this style is, you might have to google it.
    There is an entire canon of 5-string banjo playing that employs this style (which banjo players call melodic) And then there are country guitar shredders like Albert Lee and Jerry Reed that is part of their signature sound.
    On ukulele, John King immediately comes to mind:

    This is a pretty good example of what I'm talking about.
    I think he used re-entrant tuning exclusively, although I have had good success with low G also.
    Interesting style, anyone into it?

    I have tried it. Seems to me I found a free technique book. At this time I have to develop my skills more.

    Jon’s how to play Campanella guide, or something like that.

    Here's a little waltz I wrote a while back, it makes use of the Campanella technique
    Played on a reentrant tuned baritone.

    All the best,
    Campbell

    Such great playing Laurence, I'm thinking Campanella might just be addictive! Thanks for posting

    Thanks Campbell, and that waltz of yours was truly excellent. I always knew you were good, but I think it finally sunk in just how good a player you are!
