The thing about making a decision like that is that it tends to make the project heavier. With more riding on this particular part of the installation, I have been avoiding working on it until the very end. Now that we are down to the wire (the opening is next week) I knew the time had come.
As I wrote in the last post, I had an instrument in the bass register, one in the standard guitar register, and two that are higher yet, so this one I tuned as a baritone guitar (more or less). It is pretty low, and should sit nicely between the bass and the guitar.
Here is what it sounds like:
I have had a lot of fun exploring possibilities with these five pieces. It has been a nice break making things that are only barely playable and trying out some new things no matter how weird. Being done, though, is also nice, and I am looking forward to making a regular old uke or two, and maybe a tenor guitar.
