Closeness

Published on January 5, 2022

Here’s a new solo original, written for low g ukulele with scordatura. Re-tuning a couple of strings (third to B, second to D) we get a fabulous G major triad on the ceiling strings, which allows us to easily create an interesting atmosphere and some chord inversions that are impossible to achieve using standard tuning.

Without further ado, this is Closeness.

If you found this tuning interesting, you may like to listen to A. P. Drove Me to Tears, the first piece where I used it.

Score available from The Ukulele Bookshop.
