I'm loving this thing and feel like I finally found the right type of uke for me! I can combine my know how of both guitar & uke on this,and it's amazing. I did discover I have a rather unique way of looking at the instrument.
As I was missing one string when it arrived,and the upper 4 are tuned the same as a uke in C, (no reentrant tuning and the G is low) I delighted in playing out of my ukulele books. I ignored the 5th string altogether. Spanish baroque pieces are beautiful on it,and I was playing rock tunes as well.
Then,when the new set of strings arrived,(I'm trying out the Aquila set in red label) I started playing it like it was a guitar- playing classical guitar pieces,fingerpicking blues,playing rock songs,and so on. It sounds great.
However,as it's not in guitar tuning,I'll be getting a chord book. Forms are familiar but the sound & name changes. For example,a basic guitar G chord is actually a C chord on the guitalele. I've yet to find a free to print chord chart for guitalele,and will probably make one up.
In the meantime,you guitalele players out there,write me with any questions you have about this instrument or what articles about it that you'd like to see!
