    Hello,

    Ever since I started listening to ukulele Youtube has been suggesting Banjo videos. I finally decided to click on one talking about three bluegrass banjo styles (https://youtu.be/XpUq6P5Avo8). I was just curious what are the ‘classic’ ukulele styles? What about modern ukulele styles? Who are some uke players that epitomize these styles?

    Best,

    Hey Marc,

    that was a pretty interesting video, and a good topic to talk about. If you’re ok with it, I think it would be really cool to bring it up on tomorrow’s Live Lesson. When I think of modern uke styles, I definitely think of what Troy Fernandez did with Ka`au Crater Boys, and what Jake did in Pure Heart, but my perception is pretty biased with what I grew up with. Even though Aaron and Aldrine will probably mention those two also, they’ll probably be able to talk about a bunch of other influential musicians for both “classic” and “modern” uke styles.

    Aloha,

    That would be great! I’ve been slowly reading through “The Ukulele: A History” by Jim Tranquada and John King, which was recommended by Jason Arimoto. It made me really curious about how the sound of the ukulele has progressed. I’m excited to see what you’ll talk about on the Thursday Live Lesson.

    Best,

    Hi Marc-
    I’d like to hear your thoughts re “The Ukulele: A History.” I’ve seen that book and considered getting it. I’d be interested in hearing your book review.
    Thanks,
    Rick
