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

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!!

Ukulele Tunings & Uke Size Chart with explanation: Soprano Concert Tenor Baritone & Bass Ukes

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

Ukulele Size Chart – Length, Scale & Body Shape

* 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 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)
