Well played! That banjo uke is pretty damn sweet. I have also been rocking out to the arrangements in Zaza's book. He has another one coming and I can't wait for it!

internet back up then ?..........

Naaah I'm F++ing kidding.....seriously ...nice instrument ....but do they last ? I mean if it is a gourd ? How long ?

I have just retired a fifty year old banjo - uke cos it is limp and lifeless and needed some TLC...so how long will a gourd banjo- uke live ....

nice playing btw.

Hmmm. The best banjo ukes I've played were 80+ years old. They weren't gourds but still.

That is perfect! The gourd sounds great for that song. I really enjoyed listening. Did you use an available tab for that? Or are you one those that can figure it out and just play it? Either way, it was great! Thanks for posting. I would love to find a gourd uke like that, hard to find?

Oh this little feller will be still being played eventually. It just needs to be down for a while as I get it sorted ....and it's a good excuse to buy a replacement...no not a replacement an alternative B-Uke !!
