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....

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
