1 giffenf 11 months ago I’ll be the first to admit I’d had a couple of drinks before I played it last night (if your team had lost the way mine did yesterday, you’d have been drinking, too). But I was at my brother’s house drowning my sorrows in whiskey and song, and my brother showed me his Lanikai 8-string tenor ukulele. I typically shy away from ukes because, well, because they’re ukes, and those little necks are just too hard to maneuver on. But this one was different. It had enough runway to land my fingers on, and with two extra octave strings and two unison strings, it put out enough sound to feel I was really playing something. Now I don’t claim to be a genyouween uke player, I just use guitar chord fingerings and mentally transpose the chords so I know what I’m actually playing. But on this uke, whiskey or not, this actually sounded GOOD.I did a bunch of Facebook Live videos (thanks to my sister-in-law) and watched them this morning. And while they don’t sound as good sober, the uke still sounded like I remembered. So I started shopping and reading up on these little beasts. I think I’m gong to need one soon, probably an acoustic-electric one. Does anyone have any experience with or opinions of this instrument?
