Went to a folk festival recently and got to trial some instruments (including a violin, which only sounded great when I had 30 loud strumming ukes behind me – which is somewhat impractical for daily practice!)
Anyhow – got talking to a guy who had a tenor guitar, 4 strings – tuned like a baritone uke. The neck was thin like a uke but the beefy sound of a guitar – it was pretty cool. I also tried a baritone uke, which was awesome. I have always been against them: I was put off because of the different tuning, but actually, could play the same stuff, just in a different key – and lower, which I think I would find easier to sing to.
Has anyone got one? Would you recommend it? Do you use it as much as your other ukes?
