Category Archives: Ukulele Camp

Ukulele Camp 2018 is at the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden located at 5210 College Rd, Key West, FL 33040 on Stock Island.

We are excited to be planning the best music summer camp experience ever for 2018!

By popular demand, everyone will focus on the ukulele as the main camp instrument but we will explore electric and acoustic guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, steel pans and more. We encourage every child to try several different instruments before spending a lot of their time with one.

Our goal is to provide a professional musical learning environment through special tools, equipment, experience, knowledge, live examples, performances and guest speakers. These guided hands-on experiences help campers discover new likes and hidden talents while building the best summer camp experience ever.

Monday July 16 – Friday July 20

8am-12noon

Ages 5-11
(Potty trained necessary)

Camp admission is $200 for the week

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.

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)

Ukulele Slide Blues “I Made It Cry w/my Glass Finger” Wayne Sorbelli @ Island Guitar Shop Key West & Dallas

Click link above to watch video:  Ukulele Slide Blues. “I Made It Cry w/my Glass Finger”

Wayne Sorbelli here 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 wearing a glass slide Dunlop 212.

“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
