Transcript

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. Okay, I'm going to be talking about the smallest of our ukuleles, which is the soprano. It is the baby. It is the highest sounding instrument. It has the smallest fretboard on there. It is generally about twelve to fourteen frets long here. It is actually a great size for kids to learn on because of it being smaller. If you do a lot of backpacking and like bringing instruments along with you, this will actually fit into your backpack. If I play the vamp on there, the C vamp, it will sound like this. (Music)
