I love mechanically controlled instruments and I love the ukulele. This is the greatest intersection of the two that I've ever seen.

That is really cool! Do you know anything more about it? I googled "mechanical ukulele" and didn't find anything.

Tabs please? LOL. Just kidding. That is very very cool.

Actually tabs would be cool. I think the arrangement is quite good, although there may be some finger stretches in there that are technically impossible.

Was it for sale? I would've bought it. Except that I don't have the money to spare on ridiculous musical devices having spent all my money on other ridiculous musical devices.

I don't know how close this one is to that arrangement, but it's worth a shot. :)

It was for sale, but it was like 17,000 dollars if I remember correctly? I could be wrong, but it was expensive!

Thanks, It's a great classic. I think Aldrine recently did a uke mins of this too. I've printed it and filed it in my, "one day when I have the confidence to try" book. :)
