VERY nice!! Amazing how much pick action he gets from his thumb, and only supplemental with the first finger. Was wondering about all the tape? Holding the picks on? Wonderful clear action on those high frets. Saved it to my archive for future listening. Thanks for the post. Lozark

Ahh, Peter Moon was the man back in the day. Such a unique, distinctive style. Any of the Peter Moon Band CDs from the 80s are worth having.
I've got that instructional video, unfortunately I no longer have a VHS player. Maybe someone will re release in DVD version.

It's not the uke that is remarkable in this video, its da playa! He could make a $15 uke sound "island".:shaka:
