George Formby and Hoosier Hot Shots Videos

Wonderful collection of video clips of George Formby, the Hoosier Hot Shots and others are here at this link. Ralph Shaw and Joel Eckhaus both attempted to teach us all Formby's famous "split stroke" triplet strum in their seminars at Uke Fest West. If you're working on this chestnut (as am I -- and it's a toughie!), the "She's Got Two of Everything" clip has a clear steady shot of George's technique (what Joel call's the "Form 'B'" (get it?) triplet).
