Aguado, Dionisio - Vals - Ukulele

Postby tateharmann » Tue Mar 22, 2016 7:03 pm

I love the happy sound of the uke! I gave this waltz a swing feel and added a few ornamentations here and there.

Played without nails on a Gretsch G9120 ukulele.

You inspired me to find my old Tanglewood uke and try a few things. There is an amazing wealth of interesting music at UkeHunt. Its high pitched 4th string means a lot of different music is doable that is tricky on a regular guitar, eg charango music

I wonder how gut strings would sound?

Thanks for the comments all!

I also love the charango, Tonyyyyy haha.

I was just researching gut strings for uke, didn't find much...

An Ecuadorian, Christopher Teran has a Youtube channel with lots of tutorials, including ones for charango. His requinto pieces also focus on the upper register, so should be playable on a uku. Though he often uses a thumb pick, giving an even brighter high sound.

This one is definitely very playable on uke (trickier on guitar, though possible)

Nor me.

I just tried a length of .66 gut as string 1 on my concert sized uke as an experiment and it does work fine. And an .80 as string 2. A bit quieter than the previous nylgut, and less sustain, but sweet and delicate. .I have some 1.oo left so logically that might work on string 3. I will try it tomorrow. These are the sizes that Rob recommended for guitar, but look about the same size as the aquila uke strings.

They didnt break as I expected :chaud:

Thanks for showing me this brilliant site! I've already downloaded a bunch of music from it and will definitely try the one you mention here.
I was never familiar with the composer that did "The Motorcycle Diaries" - but I always thought the song "De Ushuaia a la Quiaca" from the movie was genius. Love it!

I enjoyed this recording, thanks!

If you guys/gals are into classical music played on the uke (which I am!), if you don't know of them, I highly recommend a nice series (four volumes) of classical pieces arranged for uke, published by Flea Market Music. They are all for GCEA re-entrant tuned ukes, and really a lot of fun to play.

Awesome I will definitely check that out, thanks!

I'm finally building a uke repertoire that keeps me entertained for more than 15 minutes, haha.
