This is my fa-vo-rite CB song. I did a setup on the Les Paul uke, making a corian nut and saddle for it, lowering the action and putting on a set of Nyl-guts. It greatly improved the tone and intonation, and probably gave it a 50% increase in volume, both electrically and acoustically. Hope you all have as much fun watching this as I did making it. Now, in honor of Chuck Berry, I'm gonna duck walk down to the ladies room and set up my hidden camera.

Oh yeah, as always great job. You ROCK! Oh yeah! Thanks a lot! I'm pretty sure he did. I remember the big brouhaha about it when I was a young'un. It was either the ladies bathroom or maybe a dressing room. Maybe late eighties, early nineties. He might have even did time for it. Haha, father of rock and roll by day, perverted sexual deviant by night. Oh the duality.

Frankie, that was most excellent!
My wife bought me a Les Paul Ukulele for my birthday - but I can't play it until my birthday arrives in November!
That sounded great, and now I can't wait to try some Zeppelin (The Lemon Song?) on it!
You are an inspiration...

Thanks for the compliment Pueo! Really appreciate it! Man, that would drive me bat feces to know I had something like that and couldn't get it for months! Post here when you make your first vid with it.

Hands down, best uke playin I've heard from somebody that don't make a living at it. Maybe better than some of them even! I'm gonna find you on YouTube and subscribe.

Rock On!
Scott

BTW...what kind of amp are you using, and is the uke strung high or low 'g'?

Thanks again Scott! Them's some mighty kind words there. IT really means a lot man. I think you got my message on YT already saying that I play this through a mid nineties Fender Pro Junior, but I'll say it again in case anyone else was wondering.

IN answer to your second question, it is strung with a high "G".

Thanks for your interest, and if you've got any other questions, feel free to ask. I promise I won't think you're stalking me if you ask lots of questions lol. Take care man!

Heyyy...you and consitter have been conspiring, ain't you? Admit it!!! LOL!!! Consitter requested me do a cover of "Tush", which I am going to give a shot. Is there anything else you'd like to hear? Thanks for the request, and for the compliment! Take care my friend.
