I was trying some of that clawhammer type stuff and it kinda morphed into this... had to flip on the iphone to catch it and share... notice how it makes my lower lip automatically sag, lol... can any ukulele players name these tunes? hehe...
it's also the first time I ever kept a first take of a video :)

Mucho mahalos Ken, means a lot comin' from you! in fact your clawhammer on the tenor is what inspired me today... I saw that vid and it reminded me a little bit of 'Whisky Before Breakfast' so I started experimenting a bit... I figured if anyone could guess those three tunes that I played, it would be you lol :)

Very nice! It is good to see someone else doing some drop-thumb frailing!

I recognized "Old Joe Clark", at the least. Tried to play along, but my uke is about 1/4 step off from yours...

Anyway, keep up the good work!
