Subject: RE: How many 'Cats play Ukes?
Leadfingers - I wasn't being confrontational.
the prodigious RH technique was, as you say, a big bit of the successful george Formby equation.
there used to be a guy called Eric Ilott, who did the folk clubs with banjoleles etc, which he carried round in a sort of sailors cavas sack - and he sung songs about the sea etc.
he was pretty good.
I don't say you have to be a brilliant technician like George Formby. Frequently you get these GF impersoantors who can do all the rolls etc, but are painful to listen to.
I guess there are no EASY instruments - not if you want to play them right.
sorry if I seemed to be argumentative.
