    Wotcher- Anyone find that “Ukulele: The Sound of Life” a bit similar to the Blackadder theme tune?
    I couldn’t take it seriously…

    Regarding the Fretboard Journal post, you know what I really notice about watching Cliff Edwards play? He holds his uke so effortlessly. If you look, it looks like just an extension of his arms. He’s totally relaxed and the uke looks like it’s part of his body. He makes holding the uke to his body while he strums look so natural. I guess I’m more like George Formby, who is cheating by using a chair so he can rest the uke on his knee.

    Stuie: I see where you’re coming from (the tune is America the Beautiful).

    pepamahina: Yeah, I think he must have lived with a uke under his arm.

Got something to say?
