Real good job on that banjo uke Titch! Hope to hear how she sounds. All the ones I've made with that pete plastic are surprisingly loud!

Hey Titch,

I just watched all your video. Which is a major feat due to my limited attention span.

All your builds are very clever and you play and sing well too.

Keep building and posting
