    Fantastic! Hugely inspirational.
    When I grow up, I hope I can make a ukulele as nice as yours.

    Thanks jop.

    And just so no thinks that I am wearing a naughty shirt, FCK stands for FC KÝbenhavn. It's the professional soccer/football team in Copenhagen.

    That is excellent. I love it.

    I have one more video to do in my informal Denmark trilogy. I made a LEGO ukulele, this Frozen ukulele, and I presently making an electric ukulele with some wood from the Danish island of Bornholm. Hopefully that will be done by the end of the year.

    How cute! Do you play it like a cigar box guitar (I've seen a lot of them with 3 strings).

    DanielHulbert. "making an electric ukulele with some wood from the Danish island of Bornholm." What kind of wood are you using? Do you have a special connection to Denmark, or is it coincidence?

    captain-janeway. I cannot remember the exact tuning, but the relationship between the strings is like on a low-g ukulele minus the a-string, giving an open major chord. So, the chord fingerings are related to those of ukulele/guitar. The sound is a bit shrill and loud enough to be annoying. But just to be on the safe side I added a piezo mike.

    Good thing you clarified. I might have thought "The only thing missing is you."

    My wife lived in Denmark for a couple of years in the early 2000s. Then we went to visit again a year and a half ago. I saw a stack of wood in a barn at a friendís property, so I asked for a piece.
