I haven't seen any ukulele threads so I thought I'd start one. I just bought my first ukulele although I really learned how to play when I was 17. It's a Caramel Zebrawood Tenor Uke. Sorry I can't post a pic, a lot of my pictures won't upload on here.
Below is basically what I want to see in this thread

•What ukulele(s) do you have?
•Post pics
•Any ukes you got your eye on to buy?
•How long you been playing?
•Do you prefer soprano, concert, tenor, or baritone?
•Favorite ukulele player?
•High G or Low G?

And anything else you want to add

I have a Dolphin and a Korala Concert.

Did play for about 2 year but life has got in the way over the last 12 months or so. Wanna get back into it.

Prefer concert because it still sounds like a uke but there's room on the fretboard for my hands.

But then I play it with a Low G so idk.

Confession: Eddie Vedder is the only uke album I actually have. I don't really like uke music. I like playing songs I like on a uke because I can't be bothered to learn guitar properly.

Also ukulele enthusiasts are some of the strangest people you'll ever meet. And not in a good way a lot of the time.
My old signature was too long. Have a daisy.

- Have 5 ukes - 2 tenor, 1 concert, 2 soprano
- See profile
- Would love a banjolele
- about 2 years
- soprano and tenor for sound, concert for scale, and baritones suck imo
- Mick Conway (You will probably never know who that is)
- No preference, only with certain songs, for example, tuning to open C requires tuning A down to G, which leaves you with two Gs, so a low is more useful when I play Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

Also we're going to get eaten alive by guitar players any minute now

Lol cool. I prefer tenor because my hands are kind of big so I need the space to actaully play and I love the sound of it. It has a more full-bodied sound if that makes sense. And high G for me currently. I actually don't have a favorite uke player right now. I just like this guy on youtube that makes tutorial videos and cover songs. I never seen someone play blues on a ukulele, it was pretty cool.

Nice. Back when I was proper into it I was after a six-string version of that Lanikai Tenor.

If I ever buy another a six string will probably be what I get. Not a guitalele because I may as well capo one of my guitars, but one with the C and A strings doubled.

Also huu on open C. Once tried playing sort of fake slide on my uke using open C and some distortion. Sounded better than it had any right to. That was back when I was on a uke forum and doing like two or three videos a week for the song challenge thing they have over there though.

EDIT: This is one. Haven't watched it in a while so it may seem crap now idk.

Haha baritones just sound too much like a guitar to me. They're basically the bottom 4 strings on a guitar which makes me skeptical to buy one.

I was actually playing it when this thread was started, and still am.

guitaleles aren't real ukuleles imo, there's a limit to what you can really call a uke before you realise that it's really a guitar. Also huu on the six string, the drones on the individual strings are cool, as opposed to the 8 string ones, which are full but a little tacky (again imo, but it is the equivalent of a 12 string and despite owning one, they are usually kinda stupid, an exception being in The Rooftop Singer's "Walk Right In" which is awesome), but there's something quaint about 6 strings that I like.

If I was any good, I'd do that song challenge, but I'm not, so I won't.

I basically want a six-string to play She Sells Sanctuary by The Cult, no idea why I just think it'd sound good.

Also Can't Keep by Vedder but I play that on my normal ukes anyway.

Got an empty flat on Saturday. Gonna learn some songs I think.

Which is precisely why I used to be one of the back-up leaders of what was once given the title of the best ukulele group in Australia. Because there were people who didn't judge me on my affliction.

The worst is going to open mics, and you get guys going 'your guitar's shrunk in the wash m8'.

And then you play something other than George Formby and they're all not quite sure what's just happened.

baritone ukes are the only ones that dont annoy me. I think I just know too many bad uke players, and theyve ruined them for me.

A buddy of mine had a sweet resonator baritone. Sounded crazy nice

I have two tenor ukulele's. For my purposes a high G string seems to work better. I tune them like a guitar although they sound better tuned higher nevertheless they still sound okay tuned down.
Here is the song: strawberry fields forever : you have to turn it up I did not record this very loud but it sounds good I would not post it here but it like it did.

For the technically minded it is a well, by golly, I forgot the brand name. The sticker fell off. Yes, on the headstock was a sticker with the brand. It does have Fishman electronics and a solid spruce top. They didn't skimp on the important stuff.

I covered up the marker.on the 10th fret with brown paint. And put a white marker on the ninth fret, like a guitar. Okay here's the recording.

I thought about buying a 6 string but it reminds me too much of a guitar so I'll stick with 4. I might consider an 8 string tho, never played one before.

Just get a lute instead. People also think that my mandolin is a fucking ukulele.
