Candy Tin Ukulele Giveaway with Steve’s Strings

I’ve teamed up with the Steve’s Strings YouTube Channel to do a giveaway.

He is giving a candy tin ukulele that he made, and I am giving away a Jowoom Smart Tuner.

Make sure to subscribe to both of our channels, and make a comment on both videos.

This contest will run through the end of November 2019, with the random drawing taking place in early December.

LEGO Ukulele

After planning, gathering the parts, and designing this ukulele, I was finally able to start  build this LEGO ukulele.

Here is the ukulele before I glued the top on.  As you can see in the picture, I followed the traditional building method and installed bracing on the top and back.

This is the completed ukulele with Strings.

Any idea why I used these shirts for this picture?

I hired a new setup technician to help me adjust the string action.

 

Here is a video about the building of the LEGO ukulele.  Towards the end there is a playing demo.

The Charm of Pismo Ukulele

I’m not exactly sure how it happened.  How I found the channel.  I mean, where is the start of a circle?  Where does the answer exist before the question is asked?

It’s as if I awoke from a slumber, struggled to see through blurry eyes, then everything finally  became clear.

I found Pismo Ukulele.

Pismo Ukulele claims to merely offer “easy and simple ukulele tips and trick for the pre-beginner”.  And it does do that…in spades.  But he also presents material that challenges paradigms of conventional ukulele groupthink.  Part time traveler, part ukulele sage, part Kaufman.

I subscribe to a lot of ukulele channels, but I always make time to partake of Pismo’s latest offerings.

Scott Huddleston Music and Avocado Trees

Scott has a great YouTube channel that features awesome songs. He asked for song suggestions, so I asked for Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

He made a great version, and even gave Circuits and Strings a shoutout.

Scott also started a channel where he is documenting his quest to grow an avocado tree. His accent, the subject matter, and the theme song all make it a winner. Go and subscribe.
