Travelling - ukelele or guitalele?
« on: February 22, 2017, 12:48:05 pm »
So - most of April and some of May I'll be travelling. I don't think I want to bring either of my guitars, not even my GS Mini, partly because I'm already lugging a lot of gear and partly because I'm going both to a very dry and a very humid climate. Rather not risk it.

But I need to practice, and I want to play. Any opinions on whether I should get a uke or a guitalele? I'm not a big fan of the uke sound, to be honest, so I'm not really planning to learn a new instrument. A guitalele/6-string sounds like the obvious option to me since it's closest to a guitar and I can just carry  on.

Is there any reason that I should be considering a regular uke instead? Justin does have separate lessons, so that would be fun of course.

Thank you, stitch. That was a useful video, it demonstrated the sound of both.
