banjo uke

I've spent some time tonight playing my banjo-uke. It was made by this guy. The particular video I link to is the one I was using.  
I've been desperate to learn clawhammer since I saw my friend Matthew play his banjo. I'm not sure I have the coordination but it's a goal for the summer.

My new apartment is rad. The neighbors (upstairs) are a little loud but I'll drown them out with my music.


ukulele stuffs

Ukulele stuff I just ordered:

A Shag Wahini sticker,
a ukulele sized stand (instead of my big-ole guitar stand),
new strings for my Pineapple Sunday,
2 wall ukulele wall hangers (instead of my guitar wall hangers),
King Kukulele & the Friki Tikis--Live at Trader Vics,
and King Kukulele & the Friki Tikis--Luau in December (via iTunes).

I've also ordered quite a bit of old-timey sheet music from eBay.  I found Ev'ryone Says I Love You online also.  It's tuned weird and I'm going to have a hell of a time learning it but I love a challenge.  

I also found this that I really, really, really, really, really, really want.  But I didn't buy it!  See how good I am?!
