The phrase "uke shredder" brought to mind for the briefest of seconds a picture of an industrial-size chipper being fed ukes and other Don Ho paraphenalia...

But that kid sure gets some music out of one.

Oh my, that's quite amazing, plus some sort of large ukelele. Mind you they made them in all sizes, right up to double bass size.

There's a mass ukelele orchestra doing the rounds in the UK, amusing for the first five minutes then it depends how much you like ukes.

Turned out nice again!

I had to do Mr Ridgley....

I'd hate to find out what's lurking in his closet :whistling: :blush:

I think if anyone on that list was going to try fretless first it would probably be Les Paul, I fink - is he still amonst us?


There may have been an awful lot more of it about!

I think he is. Saw something with him on the telly not long ago (no, it wasn't a penguin), and it wasn't a "someone just died and here's a retrospective" sorta thing.

Music usually helps longevity, methinks. I don't think it's just the annual Swiss blood changes that keep Keith Richards alive for the next Maalox & Depends-sponsored Stones tour.

Thanks for getting us back on topic, we almost need an "I did that years ago" poll as well!

Slightly pixelated there buddy, can't quite make it out. Is that a bush or a c*nt?

I think I smell two Englishmen on the no-fly-list.

I think you are giving Bush far too much credit. I mean, the thing you're comparing him to has at least a couple of uses.

Which of course begs the question: Does the former Cat Stevens play fretless? :(

Well if ever there was a topic needed moving to the CB section, this has been hijacked twice, features the fretless with the spineless, ensures a long cuban holiday in an orange outfit for Gazza and queries the musical intentions of a certain Imman.

Only the BBC can get away with this kind of milarky.

:(

Speaking of Cat Stevens, does anyone remember his third hit single "I'm Going to get me a Gun" ? Doesn't feature on current greatest hits or best of albums. If I sent my copy to Tony Blair he'd be up before the beak in no time at all.
