When in Canada a few weeks ago I saw a ‘Strumstck’ in a music shop in Corner Brook (see below). This is a 3-stringed instrument (tuned D-A-D) and supposedly great for the musically inept (meaning me, probably!) so thought I’d give it a try. Still trying to find time to do so.
However, when I looked at their website I discovered that they produced a ukulele version of this instrument – shown here on the right.
This instrument attempts to take the uke back to its origins of being steel strung gCEA tuning. It produces a wonderful sound.
Hopefully over the next few weeks will upload a video of me playing it. But for the time being will be taking it to the next local acoustic night to have a play.
These instruments are available on Amazon.
