Thanks, Buggy.  It does look like a uke.  It's a four string mandolin with altered tuning: GDGB.

Nice sounding Uke..

Thanks, Kale. It's a pretty good mando.  Big, deep box.  I like it in GDGB, but it will go standard mando tuning GDAE with the same strings.   The D or D7 finger chord is not quite right, but pretty much close enough.

Good eye deer, Brian!

I like the twanginess (is that a word) of that CBM. An instant classic John.

Durn right, Rope!   Climb on board, Dave.  Maybe Rope will share his sardine sandwich.

I can’t get enough Uncle John. John really gets Cookin on this oriiginal. Train picks up speed then smooths out and flys.

Big bottom gal.
Seems okay.
Right on UncleJohn!

Thanks, Tee, Belinda, Alan and Doug.  Some days there is a lot of road kill around here!  

Comment by Doug Thorsvik on June 11, 2021 at 8:23pm

All that road kill! Is it a safe road to walk down? Colorful and fun tune in classic “Uncle John” style! :)
