All you need to know about renting a Ukulele
The ukulele was created in the 19th century in Hawaii, after Portuguese immigrants introduced the Machete, a small guitar-like instrument to the islands. Usually strung with 4 nylon strings, its name roughly translated from Hawaiian as “jumping flea”, and the music of the instrument is now synonymous with Hawaiian culture. The tone and volume of the instrument change depending on its size and build. Ukuleles usually appear in 4 different types: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. Ukuleles have returned to the forefront as popular instruments, surprisingly regaining their popularity due in part to videos on Youtube. Hawaiian musician Jake Shimabukuro inadvertently sparked new ukulele fever when a video of him performing a rendition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” became one of the first viral videos on YouTube.
