    Wow, that is about as nice a presentation as I've seen on an ukulele. I've not yet been able to get comfortable with low G tuning, but that tune is a great example of how nice it can sound. You could do a one-hour coffee shop gig and just play that the entire time, and I think everyone would be happy! Awesome!

    Fantastic, Mike! Every time you post a video, it makes me want to pick up my uke and try.

    Do you always use low G when you play classical music? I think I need to try a low G.

    Beautiful Mike. Air on a G String has been one of my favorites since I was a kid playing French Horn in the high school band. I really enjoyed this, Thank you so much!

    I knew I was sold on the lowG, now to make the change!

    Bach himself would've loved that arrangement young Michael.
    I bet right now he's looking down on you with a big smile on his face.
    Well done mate!

    Beautifully played with fantastic arrangement
    I have the tab for this melody arranged by Tony Mizen but it did not capture my interest!
    Great work as usual!

    Thank you Chopped Liver..........that quote makes my posting all worthwhile.....!

    I only play low G so can't really comment on high G......except to say some people get fantastic music from it!

    I think an open mind regard the choice of a G string........some people play fantastic music on high G. Whichever option you choose there is a world of music to play!

    Thank you Brenda......not aware of Tony Mizen but there would be a few ways to play this music and it sound good I would guess!

    Fantastic, Mike. You prove that ukulele can sound classical.
    A day without playing uke is a day not well lived.
