The baritone uke is usually tuned like the four high strings on a guitar as D G B E only with nylon strings. Obviously Laurie Lee C. has detuned it to a chord – specifically to a G chord as D G B D; however, it appears that she has detuned it an octave lower than normal – really it has become a slack key bari uke.
Arthur Godfrey is the father of
the baritone uke as it was his idea
While I am featuring the first two songs this morning “Amazing Grace” and Mississippi Fred McDowell’s “You Gotta Move,” Laurie Lee also continues with Rod Stewart’s “Gasoline Alley” and “Michael Row Your Boat Ashore.” A refreshing take on all four of these songs with the excellent voice and slide uke work by Laurie Lee C.
