Our goal is to provide a professional musical environment through special tools, equipment, experience, knowledge and live examples, performances and guest speakers, where guided hands on experiences can be created along side and along with with peers in their age group, where that they can discover new likes and hidden talents while building a better more meaningful summer camp experience. 

Monday July 24th to Friday July 28th

Ages 4-9

8AM TO NOON.

Camp admission is $200 for first child and $150 per sibling

Here is a little ukulele slide blues from the Island Guitar & Ukulele Lesson Studios in Key West!!

Custom Silver Spoon Slide @ Island Guitar & Ukulele Music Lesson Studio in Key West

Wayne Sorbelli here at my Island Guitar & Ukulele store in Key West where today when I opened the mail, I got a lovely gift from an online friend on a slide guitar forum I’m a member of!!  It’s an old silver spoon made into a guitar slide (or in my case, a guitar and ukulele slide since I enjoy playing slide on both instruments!)

It can be bent to fit any finger which I think is soooo cool and very practical.  Also the maker took their time to glue a piece of leather inside as to add comfort as well as grip while sliding!!

I’m learning how to slide with it now – it’s taking a little getting use to but I’m quickly getting the hand for it  –  I’ll post a video as soon as I get the unique technique down!!

Pink Floyd solo on ukulele with beer bottle slide. Wayne Sorbelli @ Island Guitar & Ukulele shop Key West

Pink Floyd solo on my ukulele with a home made beer bottle slide that my dad just made me last night as a gift!

I’m here at my Island Guitar & Ukulele shop on the beautiful island of Key West.

I consider the SLIDE & mainly the glass slide my main instrument. I don’t care what it’s on, guitar, bass, acoustic, electric, ukulele etc. I PLAY SLIDE!  

All slides sound different, not better or worse, but different and they all certainly FEEL and handle much differently once laid upon the strings.  Brass is heavy and offers more resistance therefore it’s easier to accurately stop and not blow by a target note, where glass is lighter and slippery feeling and offers more control over the fine overtones, but it takes more effort to control it – I can write volumes on differences in slide material  – but i guess we will save that for another post)

“You can try to play the blues, or just give in and let the blues play you!  That’s IT!  It’s THAT little struggle, THAT split second tension right there between me and my guitar and those unconscious note choices that are happening when the notes start to play me, to me,  THAT IS THE BLUES”  – Wayne Sorbelli

I consider the SLIDE, Glass, Chrome, Brass, Ceramic, Bone, etc to be my main instrument. Here is Ukulele Slide Blues

I’m using my instrument  for healing – I consider the SLIDE & mainly the glass slide my main instrument. I don’t care what it’s on, guitar, bass, acoustic, electric, ukulele etc. I PLAY SLIDE!  When you put the slide on the strings to me, gives me a voice and I can feel the vibrations literally of what I’m trying to say –  and I think the frequencies tell a story far deeper than I could ever say merely with words – when you hear and listen you either get it, or you don’t at any one moment.

 I know some can feel what  I’m saying as I pour some serious blues crying and screaming out of this little ukulele lol

I recorded this at my music store in Key West jamming some blues in Am using my glass slide finger and Luna Cedar Top Ukulele.

I’m in standard soprano ukulele tuning GCEA.

I didn’t change anything about the uke, it’s a regular setup on an off the shelf Luna Cedar Top ukulele with nylon strings.

I’m sliding with my pinky 4th finger wearing a glass slide Dunlop 212. (although it’s worth mentioning that any slide will do the job, but all sound different, not better or worse, but different and they all certainly FEEL and handle much differently once laid upon the strings.  Brass is heavy and offers more resistance therefore it’s easier to accurately stop and not blow by a target note, where glass is lighter and slippery feeling and offers more control over the fine overtones, but it takes more effort to control it – I can write volumes on differences in slide material  – but i guess we will save that for another post)

Key West Turtle Ukulele SALE Key West & Dallas

This is a Luna “Hono UKE” or Turtle Soprano Ukulele. Island Guitar Key West and Dallas both have them in stock again (sorry to those who tried to order last week – but we can’t keep these solid mahogany turtle ukes from flying off the shelves)

Luna’s HONU Soprano Ukulele takes its design from traditional Hawaiian body ornamentation. The designs were monochromatic, tattooed in black against brown skin. The patterns and layout were strongly geometric and there were many shapes and symbols which represented the natural island world:stones, waves, fish, sharks, turtles, rain, sun, birds. This design is based on a Hawaiian turtle (honu), a symbol of longevity and endurance rendered in a Polynesian tattoo style. The fret markers are stylized sharks teeth.

UKE HONU

Play Uke – Be Happy!

Oh, and did I mention they come with the FREE soft Gig Bag and are on Sale!!
