    Default I played that song in a music store on a ukulele

    Yes, i went into a music store in toronto, picked up a Kala archtop tenor, plugged it into the nearest amp and started to play stairway to heavan. It felt sooooooooooo good, and it sounded ok as well. Next time its gonna have to be something really fancy. Any ideas.

    Go with either Flight of the Bumblebee, Peaches en Regalia, or La Villa Strangiato
    I got my wife, my dogs, and my Kanile'a. What else would I need?

    Its amazing to see peoples faces when they realize that what there hearing is coming from a ukulele and not a guitar, Thanks for the ideas, Flight of the bumblebee sounds good

    I had a fairly the same experience. I've been to a music shop in Essex and picked up an Applause soprano, connected it on the nearest amp and played Crazy G. I did enjoy the expressions of people when they realise it is not a guitar. At least they have an idea now how powerful a ukulele can be ha ha ha.

    I wonder if Stairway has been "banned" for so long that people are starting to miss it.
