    I’ve never seen tapping on the uke before. It’s very good. Do you think they are steel strings?

    I could listen to that Kevin Hufnagel track all day…and the Darling Sweets. Anyone who plays a ’72 Thinline tele has got my vote.

    They sure sound like steels
    Sounds cool
    Anyone got any ideas similar to get some different sound?
    I haven’t got the cash to just get a new ukulele :P
    Mind you playing inversions is plenty fancy for me

    That Baron & Heavy track is the greatest thing I’ve heard all year. Listened to it twice in a row… Make that 3 times… Then I converted the video to mp3 so I can listen to it some more

    What track has the tapping?

    I think it’s steel strings on the kevin Hufnagel tune…but there is a lot of an effect called “Plate (or Plated) Reverb” which probably would have been added after the track was recorded…or else he has a real nice old pedal?

    There’s some 2 handed uke tapping here…at 55sec in (don’t bother with the rest of the vid!)

    Barons stuff is always great! He sounds like he’s eaten Sea Sick Steve….

    His version of COME IN MY KITCHEN is tabbed out on here somewhere and only yesterday I found his version of RED HOUSE…it’s brill, even better when you read that it’s the 1st thing he played on uke and he’d only just got the thing!

    it’s nylon strings on the kevin hufnagel piece, but it is “prepared” with a needle over the 14th fret.

    Tenor guitar/baritone ukulele.

    I’ll allow it.

    My “baritone” is really just an old classical guitar with the two lowest strings removed.

    Wow….how’s that pin thing work then? I had a quick google with no luck!

    @JcMcGee If you look at Kevin’s other tracks (which we all should, they’re quite excellent) he uses a tongue depressor on a few of them as well as the hair pin/needle trick. I need to email him and see if he has an album, because he should.

    After listening to the Kat Embree piece four times in a row now I can’t get it out of my head. So beautiful, need to learn it for the next time the Force of Nature comes to stay. She usually asks for a song or a story when she goes to sleep. (FoN is my Step-grand-daughter, all of 5 y/o and already learning uke)

    Glad the site is back up!

    Just started listening to the clips, but the Deloreans piece is misspelled… Danelions… should have the second D.

    threebeats: Thanks! I can see it now. I think it must be over the first string, under the second, over the third and under the fourth.

    Larry: So it is! Thanks.

    Very cool!

    Random request: “Down Today” by Jonathan Coulton, chord and tab treatment? Maybe? Lovely little ukulele tune.

    I love Hufnagel’s sound! I’m gonna have to play around with that technique…
