    I don't know what is normal tuning for a Uke.
    This is a tenor uke. Yes, top string is the highest.
    Way I look at this ...is giitar without bottom 2 strings.

    Thank you for listening.

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for your kind words. I was listening my live tape
    last night. I hated my rhythm sometime...
    You made me feel better. Thank you.

    To me , Ukelele is a guitar with just top 4 strings,
    which to think easy? I am learning this.

    How about this?

    Thank you so much!

    Actually I got email from real Ukulele player from Hawaii,
    who plays at the Four Seasons hotel 5 nights a week.
    He liked my funky Ukulele, and want to play with me!

    Great stuff, really fantastic. My buddy/teacher went on a Uke tangent in the past two years and really opened my eyes/ears. Tomo just explodes on this stuff. No hiding with a Uke, you can play or you can't and no way to disguise it.

    Well done.

    Hi Derek,

    Thank you so much for yout time checking
    out! I am working on my upcoming cd...
    there are many funky tunes and some solo
    guitar tunes... Uke too.

    I saw Jake at NAMM 2005. He is very very
    popular like rock star in Japan. Many TV/CM
    using his tunes. Thank you for sharing that
    video clip. He is awesome! I admire someone
    who can play just ONE instrument to express
    music.

    I didn't know about James. I will check his
    website later. I will let know about these
    guys to my Japanese fans. Ukulele is very
    very popular insrtument in Japan.

    Thank you so much!

    PS, Do you play Uke yourself?
    You should post Jake's video clip with new
    thread. That way more people can watch it!

    Do you know Oota-san?

    The Legendary Ukulele player from Hawaii.
    He does amazing solo ukulele styles. Jake's
    influence.

    hi tomo,

    i dont play ukulele, however i find the instrument and what people can do with it amazing. similar to the mandolin used in bluegrass, but i have never seen anyone play the uke like that!!! and i love george harrison too extremely heartfelt songwriter and lead player.

    i have never heard of oota-san, i will have to look him up.


    i do play guitar, i am trying to learn different ways to play rhythm after all these years of playing lead..... i know it is strange i am backwards!!!! i love your walking bass and have that very high on my learn list. i have a joe pass tape and brian setzer tape that shows some tricks that are insane!!! :)

    Sorry for super late reply. Thank you for writing.

    Good luck with your rhythm guitar searching.
    Definitely I am into more rhythm guitar playing
    than single note stuff. It's really deep and fun.

    Do you have Joe Pass's "Two for the road"
    with Herb Ellis? Please check it out.
    "Cherokee" great song. Danny Gottion did
    great version too.

    Tomo

    Cool clip. Don't think I've heard a uke that grooves like that before. It's has to beat hauling amps & cabinets!:AOK
