Here's a take on our George's solo from Grandad's Flannelette Nightshirt, played on my old Baby Gibson UB2.

If you don't like banjo uke strumming, as least it's over quickly. :)

That was great. I'm in awe of all you cats that have crazy strumming techniques in your arsenal.

Nice technique John, you make it look easy.

Thanks, Guys. I appreciate it! The trick to this is what everybody told me early on. Repeat the stroke slowly, over and over, and speed up over time. Then, it just happens when you want it to, and in fact, it's hard to play them slowly after a few months. :)

Thank you, Dave. :) I'm doing the same thing now on Blackpool Rock...slowly, slowly...

Man, what are your wrists made of?

Thanks, Jon and Tor. You're both very kind and I appreciate it.

Tor, by now my wrists are nothing but sinew. Sadly - they're the only part of me that are in shape. :D
