It's been a joy, to be a part of the show, Compounds Not Required: 29,…
I’ve been playing my ukulele into the wee hours from months now. It’s going rather well. Now that I’m writing my own melodies upon it, I keep finding how much I love the lower end: D in particular. It’s become my little home. I resonates well. C works well as a fundamental launching point but D has a warmth to it. Being that it’s a concert ukulele, everything unfortunately resides in upper registers more than I’d like, but then again, that is part of the instrument’s allure… it’s optimistic, bright, playfulness. I miss the bass however. I want the counter balance to poise the heights of the lighter sounds. A bass or guitar is coming.
So, Today’s drawing is of that surrounding fullness and warmth of D: warmer, lower and resonating. I’ll get those octaves… I just have to wait : ) Oh and for those who can find the bass… upper left is the swirl top, middle to bottom is the left and right sides disjointed.
