  • Blues Ukulele. Can It Be Done?

    It can be done, I hope you think.   Soprano, Gibson Uke-3, with my saxophone buddy Mike Lawler.

      You should try sneak it into the other guitar forums.

      Put it in the Acoustic forum, surprisingly, more views here.  Thanks for the encouragement, it's much appreciated.

    Great music!

    You should create a "Blues Persona", Neal...something like "Blind Lester Auwiolimu" or similar.

      Ha!  Y'know, because the uke is STILL considered one of those "fringe" instruments, in spite of folks like James Hill and that Jake fella, you may have an idea there.  I got plenty of blues to go on these things, it's one of those instruments that you can span 6-7 frets, 4 strings makes those pesky diminished 7th chords sound out, and the play of the high G on the bottom makes it sort of interesting, at least to me..

       

      I'll give that some serious thought.  Have you searched "Blues uke" on youtube?   Not impressed with most.  Though that isn't to say I'm gonna rock the world with it.  

       

      How 'bout "Stormy Monday"?  Allman Bros version.  I'll start thinking about that one.  Maybe as Blind Willie Alimanawu.
