Lovely piece Gerald. I've been listening to "Absolute Uke" and "Swing Ukulele" a lot lately, you're a real inspiration. I've noticed you've been playing with a low G a lot more in the past year, but I remember you saying you played only in re-entrant and how much you liked it in the past. Is there a reason for the switch, or are you just experimenting? I have to say, I really like the sound of the low G in your playing, lots of depth and "roundness". Although I also really liked how tight your voicings sounded in re-entrant!

While listening to your sweet tones I visited your webpage.
Thank you!

One day, in my far distant dreams, *I* will probably still never be able to play that well! lol
Very nice Gerald.
