Got a Kanile'a T6 that I really enjoy (thanks for the suggestion Matt).
The octaves on the C and A strings really fill out the sound on strummed cords. But, not every song sounds right on it (because of the octave strings). I guess there are similar issues for the 8-string ukes?

What songs do you play on a 6-string?
(sound samples if you have them)

Here are a couple songs that I think sound great on my 6-string.
1) Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out
2) SWOTR
3) something I made up

(Short MP3 versions recorded)
