    James Hill being phenomenal again. Lordy, what is he not able to impress me with? Other than looking like a lollipop stick, what is that he’s using for this magic?

    Did you ever feature this year’s Norwegian summer hit “Scared of Heights” by Espen Lind? It features only the ukulele, a tuba and a base drum. Here are two performances:

    does anyone know the chords for i’m scared by duffy????????/

    Emily: He’s using chopsticks. You can see him doing a similar thing here.

    Mike: I think (emphasis on the think) it’s going to cost you around another 30% in import tax and VAT, plus you’ll have to pay a handling charge to whoever delivers it (£13 I’ve been told).

    HAL: Thanks for the links. I hadn’t heard it before.

    brittany: Here.

    I notice that the out of sync chorus “girl” in the Cliff Edwards clip is Buster Keaton. Moonlighting I suppose.

    Hi Mike,

    I bought a lovely Mele vintage soprano from the States last month. I didn’t pay import duty, but paid VAT at roughly 20% and £8 clearance fee. What you thinking of getting?

    Woodshed: thanks for your work on the site, brother! Been a regular visitor for a few months now and you’ve helped me pass many a happy hour (this machine kills time!).

    Now, I know you said you weren’t taking tab requests a while ago, but if the urge to tab out Raindogs ever grips you, I’d be one happy bunny! I’ve got the chords down pat but the licks would make my day.

    Dan: Thanks for the info. Excellent spot.

    Paolo: I’m still taking requests from contributors and now you’re a contributor. So consider it added to the list.

    Wow! I can’t believe I made it on ukulelehunt. My fame will now spread across this land like wild fire.

    Thanks to Aaron Keim for those clawhammer lessons on youtube. The student is now the teacher. Not really.

    It’s a pleasure to have you on board, Barnburner.

    Wow! I can’t believe my video is featured on your website! This is so awesome—Ive gotten so many views due it. I just wanted to say thankyou sooo much for the support, and great site you got!

    To Mike– the ukulele I have is actually a pretty inexpensive Uke, and I put on some really good strings. Its a George Washburn Lyon LU-5. Its a package deal, complete with strings, a bag, a tuning pipe, etc. My dad bought it for $100 I believe.

    Again, mahalo nui loa for promoting my video! Keep the ukuleles jamming!

    Rebecca: Very happy to feature you. Looking forward to seeing more videos from you.

    Ukulelehunt is most useful ukulele blog/website on the internet. That despite this being the only page with the word “clawhammer” in the entire site… Remedy, Woodshed! And let’s have some percussion ukulele lessons, like in your video.

Got something to say?
