Just picked up this sweet little ukulele at Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville, TN. It is by far the sweetest, most beautiful sounding ukulele I've ever heard in my life.

This first video is Ukulelezaza's arrangement of "Painting the Clouds with Sunshine" from his awesome tab book "Happy Days are Here Again."

Sounds great but the best part is when you're smiling while playing it. Awesome :)

So Awesome! sounds wonderful. Both performance and uke. I'm a tenor guy but there is something really awesome about standards. Gonna have to get me a nice one i think.

Superb playing. That Smeck number is the holy grail of vintage ukes. If you can play that, you can play anything.

The Gibson. That is a keeper. An heirloom piece. Never get rid of it.
