Great sounding instrument. Very interesting use of shopping bags. I never would have thought. Enjoyed the playing and singing. Your videos are all very informative. Thanks.

Dang.  Good sounding instrument, playing and singing.

I like your version better than the original. That one's not really my style; this is cool.

i actuually built a ukulele sized instrument from a cigar box, i'll put the link in here. it's got precisely half the scale length of my guitars, so i used the same strings, and tuned one octave high. worked out pretty well, but didn't have much sustain lol.


have a great day!

Fabulous, I gotta have one of those. I tend to play cigar box ukulele, wondering if your principles would work on a tenor ukulele. Loved your sound mate, nice one.
