Bat For Lashes – What’s A Girl To Do

The nominees for the Mercury Music Prize were announced yesterday and, despite the lack of ukuleles, it’s a strong line-up. It’s the only event in the year I gamble (and lose) on and this year my money is on Bat For Lashes.

Playing the harpsichord riff on the uke demonstrates just how useful the re-entrant tuning can be sometimes.

By giving each note it’s own string you can let the notes ring into each other recreating the sound of the original much more effectively.
