Since I haven't posted in a while, let me share some videos I found -

Ragtimey Stuff
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBO_WoZP5RY (excellent version of "If I Had You")
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjA8PvXg7CI (good simple 5 Foot 2 lesson)

Blues is a new thing for me, on uke at least. I just found those videos yesterday. I've been fascinated with clawhammer for a while now. Still trying to pick up new ideas. I think it would take a while for me to get as good the fellows in those videos. "Kitchen Girl" is great - has really engaging melody and harmony. And of course Aaron Keim is something else.

Any tricks, techniques, and videos you'd like to share are always welcome.
