I play it. It's the best instrument to bring places, because its easy to play, so when people ask you to play it, you can't make a total ass of yourself. and acustic/electric ukes?

what other uke musings does the pit have?

my dad makes reproductions of 30's era martin ukuleles for a living. so i can play, and it is fun. theyre just the coolest little instruments. much easier to just bs and have it sound good than a guitar. you can pick up a uke without ever playing it and be having fun in minutes. good times.

I have no opinion on this matter.

Look up seeso on youtube. He's my favorite, with all his modern rock covers.

Ukes are great. I love mandolins, too. Both are very small and portable. Mandos are a pain in the ass to tune, though. I'd love to see a mandolin-ukelele duet.

I'm deciding whether or not to buy an uke. I also would like to buy some recording hardware so I can record from my amp to my computer, and I can't decide which is more important.
Ukes seem fun, but it just doesn't seem like I'd be able to play much, as a blues guitarist. Please correct me if I'm wrong, though.

EDIT: Whoa, nvm. I watched that uke vid of the guy playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and was blown away! So I searched for "ukulele blues" or something like that, and there were tons of videos of guys playing hendrix or zeppelin or cream on the uke. I think I'll get one now

At battle of the bands a couple of nights ago, this kid named Linkin played the Uke while some other guy jammed out on the acoustic and sang.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

What's the tuning? Does it have special strings or can you use guitar strings on it?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.
#25
the tuning is G-C-E-A. It uses nylon strings which are much smaller than guitar strings, so you're going to have to get separate strings for it. I recommend a Martin uke if you can get one, they sound amazing!
