traditional. American.

an instrumental take on this classic old-time American fiddle tune, played on a vintage Martin tenor ukulele, lovingly gifted to me by some beautiful people from the UU forum.

It sounds AMAZING and I am truly blessed and privileged to be a part of this community. Thanks for watching gang. :)

I love the way you pick and strum...I gotta learn that and you do it so magically.

Good stuff, thanks

That was masterful, my good man.

Sounds great. Let's agree right now to keep the Martin out of the bathroom. :)

Are you using standard tuning ? (I find only versions with special tuning...)

That Martin sounds utterly beautiful mate.

Beautiful playing Jon on a wondrous ukulele !!! Loved your picking and the rich tone of the Martin!

Nice picking. I also wonder if it is standard tuning or an open tuning. I love the dog expressing its appreciation at the very end ;)

Looks like that Uke found a good home. Here's to much beautiful music together :cheers:

I didn't want it to end - once more please!

I didn't want it to end either!

That ukulele must be so relieved to have finally found its way to you. It clearly comes alive in your hands.

PS: It's visually magnificent as well - a study in stripes.
