3-limit Uke

I am going to make a Dante Rosati style JI Uke but will start small, I plan to only use 3-limit intervals can someone let me know of a good list of 12-15 of them to include? Thanks

I have discovered that 3-limit tuning is most commonly called Pythagorean tuning (probably obvious to everyone else). There is a nice Wikipedia article with about 28 3-limit intervals I can choose from and I can also add my own exotic ones if I can make some up (generate them)

As for the make of the Uke-to-be, I'm thinking either Mahalo again, or some odd brand called Savannah. According to my numbering scheme, this will be MicroUke 2.x

In addition to the already existent 3-limit list, I will try and see if I can generate any new ones of my own.

I have since decided not to box myself in to just 3 limit intervals. I will likely use a Just Greek Mode or Some version of Starling or BOTH. Details later

Ywah, three limit intervals aren't typically that xenharmonic. I would at least go up to the 7-limit.

For this Uke I want a good deal of consonance, so being xenharmonic is a secondary concern.

- Cenobyte September 12, 2011, 11:37:33 PM UTC-0700

Well, the 3-limit doesn't give that much consonance either. you are basically limited to a power chord as far as consonant harmony goes, for example, the thirds are a dissonant 81/64.
