    Groan. The only way my girlfriend and daughter can get me to the beach is by making sure I have a chair, umbrella, beer, book and a ukulele. This is a song off my first cd.

    The hat is one of my favorites: an early 50s (?) Barbisio in brown with a brown ribbon with a back bow. 2 1/4" brim, rolled over and top stitched. The crown is about 5 3/4" open.

    The ukulele is a 30's Johnny Marvin Tenor with the airplane bridge.

    p.s. if you want the tabs for the song, go here

    Wow thanks Garrett for the link and thanks Graig for the tune.
    It takes me back as my grandmother played the uke and I had forgotten the sweet sound they make.
     
  4. There is a great Huell Howser video where he goes to Orange County I think and visits a place where they teach How to play Ukeleili and after the lesson the students then practice a variety of songs. It is a real hoot.

    Now if we could just get Huell to wear a hat.

    I've already been teased mercilessly on the Ukulele Boards about my legs! My girlfriend titled the video "The Vampire of Ogunquit" beach.
     
  7. I was going to accuse you of powdering those legs!

    Two excellent videos. Thanks!

    Nice hat, too. Did you put the dents in?

    Yeah, the felt is really thin and doesn't take much to shape it.

    Hat? Legs?
