2016-08-25 Baritone Ukulele News...

An album featuring solo baritone ukulele instrumentals by Yasuhiro Murata called Still Pop. Sound samples are available at the linked site.

As I was hunting for Yasuhiro's album Still Pop, incorrectly searched "Still Life", and I came across a little surprise. James K. Radke has a photo named, Still-life with Fedora, Baritone Ukulele and three Braces posted on his website of his 2016 photos.

Michael Walker is continuing to put together classical style books. His latest "ROMANCE! Compositions from the 19th Century Romantic Movement in Tablature and Musical Notation Transcribed for the Baritone Ukulele" was just released August 8, 2016. Looking into the "LOOK INSIDE" section of Amazon's page you see the passion that Michael has. He provides an introduction to The Romantic Era along with introductory information on each of the 26 composers.

I must also mention the most prolific creator of baritone ukulele books, Ondrej Sarek, a Czech who has a wide variety of books and the latest has me quite curious -- Boogie Woogie Patterns for Baritone Ukulele.

Danielle has a new tune We Were the Only Ones on a Gold Tone Banjo Baritone Ukulele...

Aaron & Nicole have teamed up for another book of home spun folk tunes, called Folk Song Garden. I have 2 previous books from Aaron and I'm teaching my son to play a standard ukulele using their A Ukulele Handbook for a clear combination of chordal and fingerpicking styles based on old timey tunes.

 Here Aaron is playing a steel string tenor guitar tuned DGBE.
