I stumbled on this fun little song
I love that! I’ll have to show that to some Uke players I know…
Ha! That’s awesome!
And while ukuleles are not suited to real bluegrass, they make great back up instruments for fiddle tunes on mandolin
I love my little UKe’s
See what Bill missed out on!
Nice!!! And all this time, I thought Ukuleles were just the little Minnie Mouse toy things ya got for the little ones to play with.
Many people believe that to be the case until the see something like this…
Oops, I didn’t know ukes are not allowed in bluegrass – makes sense though. I’m switching my uke stuff to JS Bach, at least 'til the baroque police find out.
Ukuleles aren’t loud enough for bluegrass, but I do take them seriously as an instrument, which surprises most uke players. I play a couple classical pieces on it and while my uke gently weeps, similar to Jake Shimabukuro’s version
That classical gas arrangement looks pretty approachable… just saying.
Especially if you already play it on guitar… and with a flatpick no less!
Apparantly they work well with swing/jazz. This guy has alot of swingy uke stuff on his channel. (I originally bumped into it looking for tenor banjo stuff. Hes got some cool stuff with two tenors playing - not sure how they’re tuned.)
Here’s a few from Laurence Diehl. Some might know him from BHO…he;s an excellent musician on several instruments.
My Banjolele sure packs a punch, when I took it to a jam session the gang told me to turn down the volume.
Also if you put a bunch of the wooden ukes together they sure sing out…
Here is one of my favourite videos.
Well yes, banjoleles are quite a different beast, definitely not too quiet!
