Concert Ukulele aka Alto Ukulele

Learn about the concert ukulele, also known as the alto ukulele, from music teacher Jarret Delos Santos in this Howcast video.


Aloha, my name is Jarret Delos Santos and I was born and raised in a little town called Hana on the east side of Maui. Playing the ukulele and teaching the ukulele gives me a chance to perpetuate our culture. So today, we're going to be talking about the ukulele. We are going to be talking about the medium ukulele, which is the second actually from the bottom, after the soprano. This is called the concert or also known as the alto. It is a nice size, on the concert it is about 14 to 17 frets on here. So it does give you some freedom to play and play along with the fret line. It is a more fuller sound than the soprano, when I play the vamp on it it will sound like this.
