I've added a link to Pohau Ukuleles. If, by some accident of fate, you have ended up here, click on the link and go have some fun. This blog has become unbearably dull, while Peter's Hurney's ukes and his other work are as fun as anything. I bought a soprano ukulele from Peter last week. It is such a fine instrument that I feel compelled to improve my playing. The sound it makes is unbelievable. Among other things it is so clear and beautiful that the slightest mistake rings out loud and clear. On the other hand, when I get something right, no matter how simple, it sounds fabulous.
I have to say that the hour or two I spent touring Peter's shop and playing his instruments was almost $500 worth of fun by itself. It is extremely cool that he threw in a souvenir for free.
I enjoyed reading this interview with Peter.
I found "Don't Think I'm Santa Claus" on the compilation "Good For What Ails You" from Old Hat Records. Thanks to the lovely and mysterious Madame Pamita for bringing Old Hat to my attention.
There must be something going on with sunspots because it looks like I'll be able to post this successfully .
