My folks just got back from spending the winter in Texas, and while they were there they ran across a guy who makes Ukeleles out of cigar boxes! How cool is that? Check it out! biggrin.gif
Along with it came some chord charts and even a song called "Five Foot Two, Eyes Of Blue" which I am having fun learning at the moment, also looking forward to learning some Hawaiian style songs on this thing too. Its alot of fun to play!

That is a cool looking Uke! What a inventive way to make an instrument. smile.gif

I tried a Ukelele out when I was in Hawaii last Summer and they are fun to play.
