UkeTalk - Interview with Gerald Ross,Ukulele Artist

Great interview with Ukulelia pal Gerald Ross over on the Uke Talk site.
"Regarding the uke, I feel that its size has a lot to do with the appeal. Coming from a guitar background, it’s very nice to be able to stretch five frets with your left hand. This opens up tons of possibilities in terms of chord and melody construction. Also with the current strict limitations on airline travel, the uke is a perfect travel instrument.

The re-entrant tuning with the high fourth string produces a very pleasant bell-like optimistic tone. Even minor chords sound positive on a uke. You can’t be in a bad mood while playing the uke. It’s very good therapy for these troubled times."
