ha!!!
I think this is my one and only claim to fame brus:
in 2011 I doctored the original strip which said, "banjo".
I coloured and scanned it and posted it online and it went sort of viral - in the uke loving commune anyway
still always makes me smile whenever I see it reposted.
the original print I made is sitting in a picture frame on the drawer in the bedroom.
as an aside, I wrote a song just a few days back and roped in a few of my favourite friends for the video.
this thread post just made my day day man. thank you. :)
here's the song.

I love the song brother Jon....you just made my day! The song reminds me of some of the songs you used to post in a previous life. The only thing missing was the famous Eugene "knock" on the soundboard!

Cheers to ya, well done, not medium-rare!

Eugene is in all of us... just like Peanuts is, or Michael Leunig, or Cliff Edwards - what ever we get, we are.
We are uke.
Hey - this one boomeranged right back at you brother Jon!
Thanks for the song - it made my day (I needed it)

Damn good song and recording Jon! I didn't realize it was an original until I went online to search for the chords so I could learn it :)

Jon should do a tutorial and post it here. ;-)
