    Default Trying out my new KMISE...

    Quite a while ago I bought a KMISE banjolele from China. It was so cheap I thought itd be interesting to see what one was like. I got the instrument, a bag, plectrums, strap and tuner ALL FOR UNDER FIFTY QUID!!! (UK pounds Stirling for my mates afar who may not be familiar with the term! lol)

    I had a LOT going on in my life back then, and by necessity was travelling about all over the place, so I never really took it out of the box...until now. So I today thought id quickly try it out.

    Please bear in mind that I am not, by far, an accomplished uke player, but after a bit of tinkering I am personally quite surprised by how well it plays and sounds. Id be interested in your thoughts - good or bad...

    Hope you could hear my applause from here. :-)
    Perfect song for the banjolele, and a fun one. Thanks for sharing that.

    Thanks for sharing. For what I know the cost of those are, it's not bad. One of these days I'll have the guts to try doing one of these vids.

    Dave, you nailed it. That is your style for sure. Chas and Dave material with the banjolele.............This was so good. I am humming away with the tune in my head. Very sad about the passing away of Chas Hodges a few months ago, but I sense an opportunity for you.......................How does this sound. Dave and Dave!!!!!

    Haha! If only mate. I'm afraid I'm a little old for a chance at fame now. I'm quite happy sharing videos both ways with my mates here on UU. My 'old codger rock band' video in the guitar section here is about as close to fame as I'm ever going to get. lol

    I was lucky enough to go see Chas n Dave live about 6 months before he died and he told us he was 'all cured', so very sad indeed. Great heroes of mine the both of them.

    Anyway, thanks as always for your encouragement and kind comments Mike. They are always greatly appreciated as you know.
    Luv n stuff, Dave

    Awesome job, Dave, and the Kmise sounds great! That tune, to my ear, has just a little bit of a George Harrison-ish flavor to it...
    But the real star of that video is your headgear!
