    My favorite has to be James Hill with the chopsticks. I’ve been doing something similar for a few months now, but I’ve been having a lot more trouble making ti sound musical.

    Figures it would only take him an afternoon.

    Don’t feel bad, MC Safety. My guess is that he says the same thing every time he pulls that trick out.

    I couldn’t stand the Ukulele Masters video. Jumping between ukulele and ookulele and uke and ook for starters. Call it what you will but at least be consistent.

    Isaac: ‘Ook’ is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. Can’t stand it. I don’t remember seeing a Hawaiian say anything other than ‘uke’.

    Dan Scanlon was trying to explain that thing James Hill did over a pint of Guinness, you really have to see it though. I’m probably better off making my ukes into chopsticks though.

    Mute: :)) Yes, that’s definitely the easier way to go with it.
