News about ukuleles and ukulele music.
Well, I must be one of the especially thick few (yes,I know) who weren't playing songs within our first hour of hacking away at a uke. So humiliating.Question: Saxophones come in different sizes (7" to 7'), in different sound designations (soprano, alto, tenor, bari, etc), & the ukulele does, too, up to a point. Why in the world does the uke world use the term "concert?" It gives absolutely no information (unless you already know what a concert uke is) & confuses beginners, who quite naturally associate "concert" with well, a concert, for crying out loud (I know I did,& almost bought one on that basis). You don't see a concert sax, so why a concert uke?Why not an alto uke (whether the sound is actually alto, of course, I have no idea, it's just the principle)?
Ron, and excellent question. Let's use a lifeline and ask an expert!
