It’s nearing the end of the year and the Ukulele 2016 Spotify playlist is taking shape. As always, there’s a wide variety of great music from world famous virtuosos to low-fi indie acts, novelty songs to slick Hawaiian standards. So whatever you’re into you should find something you like on there.

New Releases
– New record from Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer: There’s a Rumpus Going On
– Kamaka have collected the cream of Hawaii’s ukers for the double album Keep Strumming.
Kyle Frazer’s It Was You has been out for a while in CD form but it’s now on Bandcamp on a pay-what-you-like basis.

– A striking KoAloha Black Label custom uke.
– New name to me Jim DeCava Maui Creek ukulele.

    I just started playing the baritone uke. Do you have an article of “No hassle chord changes for the baritone uke”?”

    Burt: I don’t but the same principles apply as in my post for standard tuning. Same shapes but different chords. For example, A to D on a standard uke would be E to A on baritone.

Got something to say?
