Post Ukulele
My girlfriend got me one for my birthday. Really sweet of her :oops:

I've learned a few strings. I couldn't get how to play it, at first, then I realized that it's just like strings 1-4 of guitar, except the 4th string is tuned an octave higher, and the tuning is different.

It's not E-C-G-D, it's G-C-E-A

I immediately visualized the chord shapes when I realized that :lol: This is cool, though. When I play guitar, I can play chords on the upper 4 strings now. Usually, I would focus chords on strings 3-6 or 2-5, occasionally on 1-4. That has changed now!


Anywaayyyy any else here play Ukuleles? It's so much fun!

I love the Ukulele. It's so much fun! I think there are Ukuleles that are a bit bigger than the "standard" one, try that out!

My girlfriend has one, but it's broken. Otherwise I'd be playing with it all the time.








For some reason, that sounded sexual.

My grandfather used to play Ukulele.

If you ever get the chance I recommend going to see Jake Shimabukuro. He is amazing. I've seen him cover Hendrix, and the beatles, and van halen style stuff on his Uke.

Heres him playing Michael Jacksons thriller

How many frets does yours have Pao? I have a tiny one with like 12 frets that needs a restring.

I'm listening to the Thriller vid and it's pretty crazy. I liked ukuleles ever since I heard Good Company by Queen.

Justice - Jake Shimabukuro is awesome! Thanks for showing me that. I truly enjoy playing Ukulele, I thought his songs were super complicated, but they have the right amount of awesomeness and simplicity! Thanks!

Eric - 16 frets, bro. Re-string it naooo





Oh, and you guys should listen to my all-time favorite Ukulele player and singer: CLARA BELLE

Summer Face - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1RXfiRPE74
Ring of Fire - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17IRhh673_c
Oh Well - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIhBlif5kTQ
Somewhere Over the Rainbow - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfqMc1-TpVA

I named my Ukulele Clara Belle :) I actually got interest in the Uk cause of her. Hope you guys like her music! She has a beautiful voice and she has mad skills on the Uk. She's also ultra hot, but I don't think I need to say that :lol:
