Hi Everyone,

I just got this Ukulelle. Leilani Ukulele, is really popular in Japan right now.
This ukulele got two pickups inside and there is tiny adjustable control inside of
sound hall(each pickup). Played through my Pro Reverb with
Eminence's Red White & Blues.

I don't know how to play the Ukulele. But I just played it like a guitar.
There are a lot of clams, but I thought it sounds funny.

Hope you like my funky ukulele.

Thank you listening!

Funky to jazz Ukelele
Blues to jazz Ukulele
Chord Melody Ukulele

PS, Just remember this, when I recorded these clips.
I only had my Ukuleke about 2 weeks. Now I can play
much better.

Do you like to play "Walking bass line"?
F Jazz blues Walking Bass Line

Update:

If you are interested in Leilani Ukuleke,
please email me.


PS, Please check

Tomo's guitar clinic

I really look forward to this.

Wow, that is really cool. I must have lived in a cave all my life because I never knew a ukulele could sound like that. Its amazing to hear your personality as a player come through on such an instrument.

Hi Wayne,

Thanks for listening.

Did you like other clips?

Now I am trying to play some standards.
Transposing...... Now I see how much I rely
on position and chord shapes. Ukulele playing
taught me more about guitar.

Wow! Great looking stuff?

How do you tune that?

Ukulele is tuned G C E A.
That's why I play like guitar's top 1234
strings. Since I play this Ukulele, I learned
more about my guitar.

Thank you so much!

I didn't know either about ukulele 's possibility.
Herb Ohta who lives in Hawai. He is monster player
,chord melody, jazz standards, some classical tunes.
I have been watching his videos. But I am busy guy
so I deside to play ukulele just like my guitar.

Those clips, I just play by feel. That was all.

Thank you for listening.

Do you like "Walking bass line & comping" ?
F Jazz blues Walking Bass Line

Is that normal tuning for a Uke? The top string should be the highest tuned right?

Not your typical Uke playing indeed! :AOK I liked it.
