I feel like bassists and ukulelists are kindred spirits who are finding each other more and more due to the growing popularity of bass ukes. My Uke is my travel instrument, I write on it, and I am quite attached to it: It's 8 strings, I got it in Hawaii while traveling on business, I strung it with viola-tuned string (CGDA, with low C), which makes it like a mandola-uke hybrid now. My bass is also tuned CGDA, so this just two octaves higher. SHOW ME YOUR UKES!!!
