Sounds back woods enough to me. I started looking' round to see if some good ole boys weren't coming' a creeping' :-) Well done, Chris. Nice sound. I am toying with getting a tenor uke to take on the plane as cabin luggage when I travel. Take care, Peter.

There are so
many different styles , sizes and configurations of ukes these days......MY weapon of choice is normally a soprano...the little one ...then you get the sopranino ad the piccolo which are even smaller... !!!!

Then the Concert,Tenor and Baritones......plus the Banjo Ukes ...aaaaahggghh.....Thanks for giving this a listen..

Small world Chris...I've heard my Grandpa play Cripple Creek countless times on his little plastic "TV Time" Ukelele...This brings back some sweet memories.Thanks for sharing.

It's a great
fun tune ...a little bit endless if you don't vary it a bit ....but that's what it says on the tin ....I love the tune ....and Kudos to GrandPa Gretsch ,he's a trailblazer with his TVT plastic uke...

Dueling Ukes!
I totally expected a second to show up and offer up a challenge... then you'd get drowned in a river or something! Nicely done!

I sometimes do a bit of Duelling Banjos on a Banjo Uke ...that could be a fun project ....Miniature Duelling Banjos.....in crippled Creek ...sounds like a plan ..thanks Mark.

Yee Haw!
The dueling banjo idea is always so cool and this rendition of Cripple Creek is so much fun to listen to. Sounds like you had some fun pulling it all together. Lucky for us. And who needs the stinkin' Bluegrass Police anyway? This is so pleasant. No one would ever think of slapping you with a fine. Great post. (Middle section with the percussive effects, etc...wonderful)
