"Australia" with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman finally arrived at our local $3 theatre, so I went and saw it. In a campfire scene the cook is playing a uke like instrument. They only have a close up of it once and it was so quick I couldn't count the tuning pegs. The top of the headstock was the same shape as my 1925 gibson, so it might just be a uke. I was wondering if Australia had a similar instrument from that era. The movie is set in 1941. What is the instrument, and has anyone figured out the song he's playing? The song is used several time through out the movie and I'd love to learn it. When they rolled the credits there were too many songs used to figure out which one it was. I may have to wait until it's out on DVD. Any ideas from down under?
