Hi, I'm FriendlyFred and running this blog. I play 'em all from soprano to baritone, acoustic and electric. Yes, big hands can handle small instruments. Enjoy strumming around and have a good day !
Uke Boogie – Episode H
Again I entered the open stage of uke boogie Berlin at the Bar Ma Thilda. First I played the traditional " La Paloma " on my Ortega baritone, then I started a group improvisation. I used a Hip Hop beat from my iPad app " Drum Loops HD " created by the drum wizard Hans Eijkenaar. I played in D minor and asked the folks to join in. And they did. About ten people played ukulele or percussion with me. That was fun. 0:00 - 2:20: La Paloma 2:43 - 8:42: Group improvisation in D minor The YouTube ID of puG3KeIbUUo#t=172 is invalid.
