    Thanks Teri, it's just a little descending noodle in C that I made up, I don't have a TAB, but it's pretty easy to figure out.

    Now that the Uke Logic strings have settled, they're really nice. Super balance, just the right amount of everything, good volume, with no boomy low end. Looking forward to A/B test against another mahogany tenor with Fremont Blacklines, which I really like too.

    Wow, thx for picking up my post again, John!
    I'm jealous you found a used one.
    Really fun to hear it.

    I almost bought one of those prototypes... but I couldn't find a review or a sound sample at the time.

    By God! That's the first time I've heard Ukulele used to accompany an Operatic Soprano! And, I think that's Italian opera, not Chinese. Unfortunately, I'm not an opera buff, and can't identify the particular aria.

    I was going to guess Italian too. Definitely not Chinese.
