    That is wonderful! Just lovely playing. The Kala Elite Doghair sounds excellent as well.
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don’t begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    With a house full of dog hair, I just can't bring myself to buy a dog hair uke.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Pardon my ignorance, what exactly is a dog hair uke? Dog hair covered uke is going to sound very muted. I know satin finish btw.

    It's a type of mahogany with a grain that resembles dog hair (a dog with short coarse hair). The black and white Kala Elite dog hair really caught my eye when it came out a few years ago. Might have been tempted if it came in soprano.

    Beautiful piece! The Elite has such a good tone, not to mention a nice bark.

    Thank you for the explanation. Now I know. I still think it’s weird name though. Haha

    Very nice playing and a nice quality recording, too. Just going by ear, it sounds like your six-string is tuned in guitar tuning -- correct? And thanks for posting this beautiful piece.

    Thanks everybody for listening! John boy, I recorded the 3 melodic tracks of the minuet in Logic Pro using a 4-string Kala Elite Doghair tenor—all thumb flesh strokes. I played bass on the 4th track. The photo used in the player at ReverbNation is merely a PR photo and, yeah, I'm holding a TT6 (which I love recording with too). I'll probably write a review on the Doghair once I make a few more recordings and play it in a bit more. You can feel the slightly raised grain when you touch it. This is what a Doghair looks like:
