Really big six string ukes

Well recently I've branched out to those really big ukes - yes I picked up a guitar. It is an interesting beast - fortunately for me uke callouses work just as well on a guitar. I am actually seeing big improvements in my uke playing because of it. I'm still trying to figure out what will be the best song to work on with the new K-Wave Les Paul uke but if nothing comes to mind shortly I'll go ahead and record something so you can hear it...

New Uke

First off DSR101 has sent in a new song and it's located here.

My K-wave black Les Paul uke arrived a little while ago and I certainly think it is in the running for my favorite uke. It has a very nice tone, good playability, and great intonation - I'll be recording something with it soon so keep checking back.
