The ukulele is one of the few true instruments that can help to improve an adult’s ability to express thoughts and sounds.
What is a uke?
Ukes are not just any regular instrument. The uke is a specific instrument of the lute family known as the oboe. The uke is known to have been around since the Roman Empire where it was primarily used for conducting the Roman military. By the 1600s, the instrument was used as a musical instrument for the public entertainment, especially when singing. By the 17th century, the uke was associated with the violin and by 1820 it had been adopted as the only ukulele instrument in Europe.
Uke’s are made either from wood, clay, or wood ash. Some uke’s have a stringed instrument that can be used for both a stringed and an oboe form. There is also some instrument that can be made into a stringed ukan.
Although most ukulele’s feature a hollow body, some instruments also have hollow sides and necks. Some hollow instruments have a raised rim so they are more comfortable to play. Other hollow instruments may have a thin body and a more rounded, open sound.
Ukes have three fundamental modes which can be played in a variety of ways. The lowest note – the lower, middle, or highest note – is played using the fretboard, a string with four strings. It can then be played with the mouthpiece connected to the instrument.
Each note on a uke is made up either of two harmonics – a harmonic which is a specific, specific frequency, or it can be made up of several harmonics. Each harmonics has a separate pitch and the pitch of the lowest harmonic varies depending on its nature.
A harmonica, like a uke, can be played with the body either open or closed. You can play both open and closed sounds by playing the body open and not playing the body closed!
