    Default New Moore Bettah auction- grab the popcorn!

    http://us4.campaign-archive1.com/?u=...8&e=7ec4d835f1

    As a new owner of an used MB I really enjoy watching these auctions. I'm not sure if that means I'm a bad person in a self-satisfied sense or what but the popcorn adds flavor. Here we go!

    I have one exactly like the one being auctioned except that mine does not have the armrest (which is really nice to have). I'll be curious to see what it goes for.

    It's beautiful sounding and looking. What also caught my attention was Andrew K's amusing description of Corey's playing on the sample: "as Corey noodles around and enjoys the superb playability and tone on this ukulele." Noodling. Yeah . . .

    Corey is almost too good for sound clips. I would almost prefer to hear some hack playing it so that I would have a better sense of how it would sound in my hands.

    But don't you want to hear the possibilities?

    I'd like to see Corey "noodling" as Corey, and then also trying to play like a hack. I bet he couldn't do it, which would clearly indicate his limitations and show that I can do what he can't do. Take that, Noodler!
