Thread Name: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Subject: RE: Are ukuleles a real instrument?
Don Firth,

Renaissance music works very well on the ukulele. The tone of a ukulele, especially the tenor, is not unlike the lute or other small renaissance string instruments. There is plenty on the internet. Just Google "Renaissance ukulele" and you'll find plenty.

I agree with guest above about the take the A-train clip posted. It's not the best example and that "tick" with the fingernails is very irritating.

As far as the anonymous critical guest is concerned I suspect that whatever you post, he will find something critical to say as he clearly does not like the ukulele and needs to rationalise his reaction to the instrument.
