    That's a cool tune, man! Now if I could figure out how to do some fingerpicking on this mandolin I'd be set...

    Dangit Ducati! It's N-E-A-L!!! How the heck you doing? And thanks for the kind words. I still play a bit of mandolin when needed, just so you guys don't think I'm infiltrating.... but uke is the one I seem to be able to do most with.

    Fingerpicking the mando.. I think I'd need a neck about 1-1/2", and most are 1-1/4". I have a John Morton Resonator uke that has a mando-like neck, and it's just a wee narrow for that, and there's only 4 strings, even a bit more cramped with 4 courses of 2.

    Who makes a 1-1/2" neck at the nut?

    That uke sounds GREAT! Nice picking.
    Is that a Martin 3 ? or what?

    What kind of strings are you using?

    I have 2 Asturias ukes. Lovem.

    Thanks for playing "Gossip". Enjoyed it!

    Thanks Mike, that's a Kiwaya KTS-6 using Fremont fluorocarbon strings. Asturias, a fine MIJ uke, just like the Kiwaya.
