I like to tune my baritone ukulele to open E (EEBE) and try to play these gospel tunes that you play in open E.
Kurtis this sounds great. I like how you used the uke. Nice job!
Thanks for that post. It was a cool read. I read this Santana book and he was talking about how everybody has a "Who's Your Daddy list" of the musicians that inspired them or that they would try to model their sound after. He mentioned his list in his book, and it was cool seeing yours. Like JD, I have to say you are on my list. I first heard your Catfish Blues and got hooked on that walking bass. Then, I saw your Sittin on top of the World videos; that song helped me get through a lot of work days. I could just whistle that tune or zone out or play it back in my head while my coworkers and supervisors were trying to troll me and get under my skin. Anyway thanks again.
This might be a better attempt. I tried to use the base string. Anyway, I could probably take about a hundred more shots at it right now, but I'll call it quits before the neighbor comes Kool-Aid man through the wall....paper wall blues.
Also, my tuning is GCEA if that helps. The G is up where my thumb is. GEA are all the same notes as your GEA, but they may be a little higher. The C string is like the Bass on the Uke I guess, but I didn't use it here. I use it as the bass in the other videos I posted here though.
This is my go at the main lick. Also, my first attempt at the record feature on this site.
What's your words on it?
Eh, here's my attempt on the Uke.
Well, I don't play guitar. But I've tried to learn this song on uke by watching your videos. I can't do some
of the low riffs on the uke. What do you think?
@ Kurtis...thanks for posting this video. Nice to see the ukelele here. You have worked the tune out well to fit the uke and your tempo and rhythm is pretty solid. I would suggest only that you work on your singing to go along with what you are playing. It might be interesting to for you to play with a guitarist. I like the sound of uke and guitar together. Good luck!
