    Default Got a Tenor!

    Well, as the title says, I got a Tenor ukulele. I found one On the internet, and I was able to order it. It has great reviews and it seems like a good deal.

    It will be here on Friday.

    1 step closer to my goal. My goal is to have all four types of ukulele. Soprano, Concert, Tenor, and Baritone. I have them all now except for the Baritone.

    After I get all four, I'm going to make an acapella video of a song involving all four of them.

    A ukulele barbershop quartet, in a way.

    I'll post a video when it gets here.

    Instead of quartet, I picture you more as a choir kind of guy. To my mind, that means at least ten voices. Here's what you need

    1-4, you already have that covered
    5. a ukulele bass
    6. a linear tenor
    7. an open C linear tenor
    8. an opan A linear tenor
    9. an open D linear tenor
    10. an open E linear tenor

    for ukuleles seven through ten you could use a re-entrant tuning, but why? The G and the A strings would be identical and redundant. With linear at least the two would be an octave apart.

    Looking forward to it Jared.

    There are such things as that? I didn't know. Well, I'll have to add that to the list then.

    And then you can go down to even smaller, google eko microlele...after playing one of these for half an hour a standard size sop feels as big as a baritone lol

    Well, you learn something new everyday.

    anyway, my goal was only to get a concert, a soprano, a tenor, and a baritone.

    If it gets too expensive, I'll probably stick with just that.
