    Christian Steinbrecher was kind enough to turn me on to Peter Kraus, apparently trying to be a German Elvis of sorts. He had his own Framus model tenor guitar.

    Thanks Christian!
    It was a pleasure, Charley! Your findings on youtube made me:

    Yes, Peter Kraus was a kind of Elvis Presley but far away from being a king!!! Never my taste of music but because he has been very popular Framus (The REAL old FRAMUS) was kind enough to make tenor guitars for him. So THANKS to the former FRAMUS guys in Germany!!!!

    I met this nice couple, Lanny and Janet, from Richmond this past week end. Lanny was playing a new, left handed, Fletcher tenor and his wife, a baritone uke. We had a very nice time untill Lanny got stung by a bee on his lower lip while sipping a libation.

    This one just appeared on Youse Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_hEG...em-uploademail I have no idea if this will be loadable as - it is ahead of the search engine at this time. I may need to update this at a later time.

    It looks as if he may be playing a steel strung Baritone Uke in this but ... I don't know.

    Here's a new video by a new group from Nova Scotia called Dark for Dark. A unique and lovely arrangement that I find totally mesmerizing.

    I never heard of this tenor guitar player, tho I have heard of Gene Austin -- Otto "Coco" Hemiel, but he swings pretty well on After You've Gone a clip from the movie "Sadie McKee". The other two just have sound files and static photos. Then again, after looking at this, I am not 100% sure if he was actually playing, tho it looks that way. Some posted on the youtube posting that Eddie Lang was the guitarist.

    "That's great. Now play something hot."

    Is that a tenor version of the L1? What would that be, TG-1?

    Definitely some Lang-ish licks in those other clips..

    I'm not doing anything fancy in this one, just strumming, but it shows my Epiphone Blackstone archtop (probably 1949-50) in action.

    Royal Garden Trio - These guys have been mentioned here before ... After watching the Chenille Sisters on PBS Backstage pass (The back up group is in the first half of the program), I blundered into this (How Deep is the Ocean) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULSSIWvK3mk and got wowed by the clean rhythm playing. The tenor player also plays sax and clarinet (but that doesn't make him a bad guy).

    Their version of Minor Swing is pretty nifty http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULSSIWvK3mk The cello in a trio is heady stuff.

    Enjoy

    Oddly enough, I was browsing around Denmark Street, London the other day, and one of the vintage instrument shops had a Gibson Century model tenor for sale, exactly like the one in Jim's picture. Nice instrument, in 'collector' condition, but I would feel uncomfortable gigging with a piece of history like that. Oh; and it was really, really expensive!

    Nick Reynolds played in Chicago tuning DGBE. Often capoed way up there, in this case I think 7th fret. Which would be the D tuning for a soprano ukulele. D tuning being the more popular tuning mid 20th century. So he's playing a big steel stringed uke...

    It's just a tiny teaser clip of something they're prepping for an August show.

    In this cracking video you get a few glimpses of another TG from about 1:36 on.

    Nice tune and great recording.The instrument in question is a Harmony Baritone ukulele. If you pause the video towards the end you can see that it's set up for re-entrant tuning as well as the top and bottom strings are thinner than the middle strings. I have one of these and sometimes tune it like a tenor guitar in C. Aquila has a string set for this tuning. It sounds great.
