Thread Name: Are you DONE buying instruments ?
Subject: RE: Are you DONE buying instruments ?
I have a CD of baroque lute and guitar music played on one of these critters (Plink-a-plonk-a-plunk). When you get down on those bass strings, that sucker really rumbles! Made by Georg Bolin of Sweden. I lust mightily after one of these, but I imagine they're a bit pricey.

I wouldn't play it in the bathtub, however.

Why the uke in the bathtub? Sea chanteys? Handel's Water Music? Bobby Darin's Splish splash? No, I do some of by best arranging while lying in the bathtub staring at the ceiling, but sometimes by the time I get out, get dried, get dressed, and get my hands on a guitar, I've forgotten some of the good bits. . . .
