The Chord Finder Thing especially...

Very well done. .... One finger makes a chord! Genius!...Love the string spacing. Extra wide! And the price is right! I think there is a real niche for this uke. But how does it sound?

This is interesting as my sister actually asked me to make her a uke with strings further apart for this very reason. I was thinking an extra few mm but now I see an extra inch might do it.

LOL I thought it was funny, too. How did he keep a straight face through all of it?

I bet he didn't keep a straight face. Maybe they'll show us the outtakes ...

Auto Harps were big at one time.

When I was a kid I had a plastic Gene Autry guitar with a push button chord finder that clamped over the fingerboard. However, no one in my family understood the concept of tuning a guitar, so it sounded horrible. Between that, my first guitar teacher, and my grade school music teachers, I was convinced that I was musically hopeless. Well, I guess I sort of am. I don't know whether to blame my music genes or all those people. But I bet I could shred if I had that guitar now!
