Wow -- $22.95 -- and it looks just like the ones I got -- you can't go wrong with a price like that... ...of course when I think about the paint and glue and varnish and stuff ... it ends up costing quite a bit more...

Ha! You didn't play piano and trombone at the same time?! I've been using a similar line lately: I play electric bass, keyboards, and guitar; not all at the same time! Can't say I'm a big fan of the uke, although on our last trip to Hawaii, we did have a luau guide play Van Morrison's "Brown-eyed Girl" on the ukelele, which was really cool. Can't remember the luau, but that guy and his uke, I remember! There's actually a bass ukelele with these cool urethane strings! Check out www.ubass.com if you want to consider probing the nether pitches.

Max, even if you sing as well as Iz, I reckon I could only take 150 or so verses....

That sounds wonderful -- I will try it myself -- I'm really looking forward to learning along with my 16-year old son -- we can teach each other different strumming techniques we learn on the Internet... ... he doesn't know I've ordered two of them -- one for me and one for him (actually he doesn't know anything about this at all ... I cannot wait for them to arrive -- I'm hoping they come in tomorrow/Friday ...

I don't think I was a natural -- I must have learned sometime (maybe with the recorder at the little kids school) -- I just don;t recall a time when I couldn't do it... ... but these days there are a lot of things I don't recall :-)

Most beautiful Iz video. Only thing better. Two, as a round. I right clicked and copied the video url then opened another browser tab and pasted it into the url box (right click paste). Now I had two browser windows offset a little in time playing Iz over the rainbow simultaneously as a round!! Would work with more as a multipart round. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL

Well, if you are one of those rare people that actually always knew how to read music, then you are a natural (which is a lot better than a flat or sharp).

If you tried that I think I'd find a way to fix it. Permanently....
