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)
“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

* The above pictured dimensions were taken from Luna brand ukuleles and can be used as a general rule for identifying purposes, with each brand varying slightly in measurement, but following the same order.
There are four main types of ukuleles: Soprano – Concert (or Alto) – Tenor – Baritone
Soprano: Tuning: gCEA, aDF#B
Concert (or Alto): Tuning: gCEA (re-entrant), GCEA (linear (tune G down an entire Octave))
Tenor: Tuning: gCEA (re-entrant), GCEA (linear) using Low 4th G string, or DGBE (like Baritone)
Baritone: Tuning: DGBE (1st four strings of a guitar)
Bass Uke or sometimes called a UBass is as a regular Bass guitar would be tuned: low to high (4th-1st) EADG
**remember that the 1st string of any guitar or UKULELE is the one furthest from your face while playing ** (the smallest/thinnest string on a GUITAR is the first, and furthest away from your face while playing it)
