Tonight You Belong to Me: World's Greatest Version

Let's start the new year right. And by "right", I mean with the world's greatest rendition of "Tonight You Belong to Me." Courtesy of Benjamin J. Ames and his four-year-old daughter.

Coming Soon: U900 Tuners

Looks like we'll see U900 clip on tuners in 2014. I have more tuners than I need already, but how could I resist these? Normally I say "tune it or die," but in this case I think I'd say "tune it and be cute!"

The Ukulele Handbook

Bumped into this book on a Christmas shopping trip. Looks like a fun book, and quite nicely done. Not novel enough to buy a copy (although if it shows up on the morning of the 25th I'd be happy), but perhaps you'd like to check it out. Link

How cute are these kids? From Hingham, MA, 1924 Link

Thanks, Ukester Brown!

The 3D Printed Ukulele

Check this out. A 3-D printed ukulele based on an open source design. Now if this guy would print himself a tuner... Link

Here is a link with more information on the open source design (apparently the link accompanying the YouTube video is incorrect). Link

Thanks, Shelley Rickey!
