5 months, 10 Ukes, 8 converts to the ways of the uke...and I decide I gotta be a one man Luau. My wife is going to kill me, but I finished this today from a set of plans that was apparently in my head. I used a dremel, a drill, a skill saw and some sand paper (OK- lots of sand paper), and it appears I am now looking for some tabs for Hawaiian steel.
Addiction is nothing new to me- note the background
Really though- if anyone has tabs or sheets for some Hawaiian tunes on a lap steel- I am actively looking...seems like it and my ukes ought to be best mates :)

Good thing you got married before you got out of hand! Ha! I am sure your wife is at least thankful you are at home!

I got this link from Gerald Ross' website.

The Hawaiian Steel Guitar Assocation forum. Similar to UU, they have a tab section among other stuff.

Aye- you're all too kind....
Yes, we trip over accordions around here for sure. SOmeday the same will be true of my new found love....the stringy-thingy's in a short scale :)
And yeah- I have the coolest wife ever. But @ Stan, here's the funny thing- all those are vintage and that is about half of them, all of them were given to me. Funny, you tell folks you play the accordion and they tend to reproduce on your door step.

TCK I notice you have a concertina on the back shelf, (had to look hard through everything else:)). I have one also I bought years ago, and never could get my fingers to work on those small buttons. Like brand new in case, never really been played, FOR SALE!! :) :) Oh yes, Really cool looking steel. Lozark

As a fellow accordion player seeing all those accordions got me excited. The uke is cool too.

Heh, heh. I'm sure you've heard this, but it reminds me of the old joke about a guy who leaves his accordian in the back seat of his car parked on the street. When he walks back to his car he is horrified to see the back window broken out. Then he gets closer and sees that there are now two accordians in the back seat! LOL

Raygf- Greg Cutshaw site is AWESOME, thanks for posting it!
Roxhum...told ya I was sick :)
Lozarkmen- throw it in the for sale section! I am sure it will get bought...I need another like a hole in the head unless it is chromatic- then we need to talk.
Lori- Feel free! Always looking for someone to play with :)
