Even if crying babies annoy you — especially if crying babies annoy you — stay with it for 120 seconds to behold the mystic power of the uke.

Sometimes there’s just too much Tumblr to “like” everything I like.

ukehunt:

It’s Uke Hunt t-shirt season again! You can preorder them on Teespring. If it reaches the goal the shirts get printed then that’s it for another year.

I’m launching officially on the blog tomorrow but I love Tumblr people the most so you can get your order in early.

Q: Why are there different sizes of ukuleles? What’s the difference?

A: There are four basic sizes. The main difference is the kind of people who play them. the sizes are:

Soprano

This is the smallest size – the one most people think about when they think of a ukulele. They are played by:

  • Young people who think ukes are cool and/or adorable.
  • Middle-aged men, often bald ones with beards, who crave attention.
  • Music lovers looking for a simple instrument to accompany themselves and don’t feel the need to compensate for anything.

Concert

Slightly larger than a soprano – rumored to have a slightly more powerful tone, but this would depend more on craftsmanship than size. They are played by:

  • People who mistakenly think they are “moving up” by playing a larger uke.
  • People who want to play ukulele but have compensation issues.

Tenor

An even larger model, usually tuned slightly differently from the smaller ukes and usually has a richer tone. They are played by:

  • Guitarists who want – or are required to play – a ukulele, but are damned if they’re going to be seen with one of those “toys.”

Baritone

Might as well be a small guitar. They are played by:

  • People who tried to play guitar but gave up after two weeks because it was too hard.
  • People who ride mopeds but tell everyone they ride a motorcycle.

Q: What size do you play?

A: Erm – Concert. Why do you ask?

For the record: If you have taken up the uke to attract members of the opposite sex, you’ve been seriously misinformed.
