Big Al Whittle Ukulele Thread. (10) RE: Ukulele Thread. 18 Dec 19


Hello Helen!

I thought this thread was dead and gone - thanks for responding!

Do you play a little uke - a soprano.

I've not had a go at picking the uke yet really. I find that high top string very off putting.. you're expecting a plonk but you get a plink! I'm hoping to put a couple of songs online soon.

I made a little breakthrough this morning finding some blues riffs.

Theres a lady at our folk club who plays trad songs accompanied by a tenore uke - she picks it like a guitar, which is fair enough - but I want to strum!! She's pretty good and like all traddies takes it VERY seriously.

I've got admit - I like to to tune it up a couple of semitones. So its A D Fsharp B.

it sounds sort of cheekier!

best wishes

Al.
