I picked up an Epiphone Les Paul.....



Wait a minute....one...two...three...four...something's not quite right here...

one...two...three...four...



Hmm........a Les Paul Ukulele?



Why yes! When I saw it, I just couldn't help myself. I had to have it!

I will post a sound clip once I figure out what to do with it.

Aloha!

Hmmm, I had no idea they made such a thing.. That's a nice looking little unit, it'd look great hanging on the wall next to the other guitars I don't play anymore 🙃

That's cooler than catsh*t!

Is it a saprano, concert, tenor, baritone?

Very nice find.

It is essentially the same chord progression, though what I had in the back of my mind were two songs from the '30s; "Blue Moon" and "Heart and Soul". But it wasn't really meant to be any particular song, just a quick and easy pairing of the Uke and C6 Steel.

Both instruments have similar tuning. The Uke is G-C-E-A and C6 tuning on a 6-string steel is C-E-G-A-C-E. If you strum the open strings on either instrument, you get a C6 or Am7, depending on what key you are in. A minor is the relative minor of C major, so they share all of the same notes. That is what makes the familiar Hawaiian sound.

Interestingly enough, C6 is the common tuning for Western Swing as well, and there is a reason for that. The steel guitar came to Western music as a direct result of the popularity of Hawaiian music in the 1920s. Most pedal steels have two necks because one is tuned to E9 for Country and the other is C6 for Western.

I got more of a sense of "Blue Moon"...but could definately hear hints of both.

Gee.....I woulda thought you might do "Ukulele Lady".....LOL!

Sounds great!
