GUEST,Jack Campin (in Budapest) ukulele to replace recorder (121* d) RE: ukulele to replace recorder 17 Jul 09

George Current, who I play with most Sundays in Sandy Bells, uses a tremolo in D and A for a lot of Scottish pipe tunes. Produces a big sound which in a vague sort of way achieves the effect you'd get with a drone. Iain Grant (who used to lead the same session) often used the same sort of beast.

I sometimes play along with that using a Hungarian double whistle in A with an A drone. For tunes where the range fits, the combo with the tremolo moothie sounds like a minature ceilidh band.
