    Now that is cool

    For all we know he can probably handle a guitar just as well. That piece from 4 strings instead of 6 is amazing.

    I got onto the web site OK but wasn't able to see, hear, download or do anything further. I must have done something wrong. I am Ukuleleless.
    Pity - always been a fan of the thing. But then I was around in the era of George Formby and Tessie O'Shea - both of whom could make the things practically talk. I often thought that a duet between them similar to the drum duets Jack Parnell used to play (with his normal drummer in the 1950s at the Winter Gardens Blackpool) would have been something else.
    Did they ever play together - I don't know - perhaps somebody does.

    You need Java Script enabled to see the video Tom. He is an excellent player, much better than the uke players of the 20s/30s

    George Formby actually played a Ludwig Banjo shaped uke:

    Here is a Formby clip (8MB):

    Its rare that I cannot see anything on the web, but you may be right Terry - I hope so. But I don't remember how to enable Java Script.
    Oh yes Graham - ref your illusion to cold showers. Being British I love them. But I don't just want a life of pleasure so I always force myself to have a hot one. Pity.

    In Firefox, javascript can be turned on or off from Tools-Options-Content by ticking the enable box there.

    In IE I think it is in Tools-Internet Options-Advanced, though that may be just Java. Else it is in Security, Internet, Custom settings, and check the boxes enabling scripting.

    Everything seems to be in order. I have got Java enabled (already in fact). But still cannot see the darn thing. The best I have managed is about 2 seconds - most frustrating. I am on dialup. And I have waited for ages!
