Here is a pretty cool video of Nunes making a soprano ukulele. I wish I could tap in frets that fast ;).

BTW, I put this post here because I figured the videos thread was meant more for YT and other performance type videos.

What a fantastic video - thanks for sharing it. Bet health and safety would have something to say about the chisel wielding these days!

Great vid Dom.

I wish I could make them that fast too.

O well, I improve on each build, and thats what I am aiming for.

Take care.

General education indeed! Thanks for bringing that to our notice. And referring to another thread about pronounciation problems... there is more yookalaylee in that video than you can throw a stick at. That should teach the ookoolaylay-sayers! :biglaugh:

Al Gore hadn't invented the interweb yet so there was no one to correct them.
