Ukulele Slide Ukulele by online Uke teacher Wayne Sorbelli in Key West

Greetings Wayne here! I sure hope everyone is staying inside, brushing the dust off their ukuleles and guitars and getting busy on them while doing your part to say inside and stay safe and help stop the spread of COVID19 virus. Unfortunately all UKEOUT jam sessions, ukulele open mic nights, and the Monthly Green Parrott Ukulele Orchestra Meeting Night is canceled APRIL 2020 and until notice. Pleased check back.

In order to pass the quarantine “state-of-settle-in” time easier and maybe even with some benefits and true life satisfaction and overall happiness increase, i’m pulling out the old guitars and musical instruments and taking advantage of the time instead of sitting around crying about being locked in.

I’ve got live 1-on-1 SKYPE ZOOM and FACETIME lesson spots open 30 minute or 1 hour. Now is abetter time than ever to give it a try or pick up where you left off – weather it was right before quarantine or not since you where in college – time to get back to it – its the perfect time .

I teach any size Ukulele, banjolele, Uke Bass, acoustic electric or nylon string guitar, Bass guitar, or Cigar Box Guitar or any other stringed home made guitar type instrument. I specialize in slide guitar in regular standard tuning listen to and love everything from Abba to BBKing, Hank Williams to ZZTop, Metallica to SRV and all between.

The Next ukeout April 2020 at the Green Parrot has been canceled due to the state of settling-in for covid-19 virus saftey

UkeOut Ukulele Open Mic and Jam Session in Florida Keys & Key West

Hi friends. I hope everyone is staying safe by staying in during the covid19 virus outbreak.

I find myself playing a ton of ukulele and guitar during all of this – I hope to see you all in person at the Green Parrot ukulele open mic night as soon as this virus passes through and its safe to gather together once again – I sure am missing people and contact and hugs.

If you already play ukulele or are just starting out and would like some beginner to advanced ukulele and even slide or bass uke lessons, please get in touch with me personally or through my store.

different sizes of ukulele chart below:

Ukulele Size & Tuning Chart for Soprano, Concert, Tenor, Baritone, Bass & 8 string Ukes

TUNINGS: Standard (most common) Soprano, Concert and Tenor are all tuned the same way gCEA although you can use other tunings on a tenor but it doesn’t work very well in baritone tuning, which is DGBE like the highest pitched (skinniest) four strings of a guitar. There is also a Bass Uke that is tuned just like a bass guitar to the same tuning and pitch EADG.

The Concert size ukulele is the world’s favorite and most commonly played and purchased – with it’s smaller brother soprano coming in second.

Christmas Rocks! band at the Key West Theater was a rocking fun & great time for all!!

Afterwards talking with the band, we agreed that we all had such an amazing fun time and felt the spirit of Christmas around us the entire night! It was true Christmas Magic from first note until the curtains closed.

With an eclectic pool of musicians drawing from distant corners of the musical universe, puddling together as the Christmas Rocks Band! – each bringing an almost comic book style super power to our not so round, more “Key West Oblong” shaped table laying the soundtrack for a fun mix of super rock classic hits & legendary Christmas & holiday favorites.

A Vision by lead singers Joe Tripp & Destiny Montgomery, musically arranged by Larry Smith on Piano & vocals, Joe Dallas on Bass, Wayne Sorbelli & Marshall Morlock on guitar duties, Skipper Kripitz on drums, Christine Cordone-Smith singing.
