Jack: Baritone Uke? They are not tuned like a Uke. Aren't they tuned the
first four strings of the guitar? Arthur Godfrey played one, and I think the
Kingston Trio used one. I fooled with the Uke as a kid. I still have a
Treholipee. It is tuned and plays like a Uke, but very exotic looking (long
curved, with huge tuning knobs). I usually have it in the trailer at racing ev
ents, but haven't played it in years. I'll bring it to HALLET. If you're a
player, you can give us a demonstration.
Kevin Potter, our mechanic, has a 'Dixie Uke.' It is about the same size as
a traditional Uke, but the body is like a banjo (round, skinned top like a
drum). It is really interesting. Distinctive sound.

Right. Still gonna be a stretch, though...
