Parlour Picker Uke!
« on: January 14, 2010, 11:37:15 AM »
Hot news from the wilds of South East England, Parlour Picker has just got a new uke - mahogany tenor.

So we await pics and sound samples of the beast.

It's not that exciting, Phil!

You might get a picture one day, but as to a sound sample, well you could have a long wait. It will doubtless come out at the Euroweenie Weekend in March. I'd better learn a fourth chord. Maybe Natterjack will bring along the Harmony uke he was talking about as well. Perhaps we could ban guitars and just have ukuleles in the New Forest?  ;) [Cue angry response from UK Weenies....]

(And by the way, it's "Parlor Picker" - deliberately (mis)spelt the colonial way, alluding to the nature of this music we all love and to the fact that my Larriv?e is actually designated a "Special Edition Rosewood Parlor". However, in normal text I would always use the "correct" spelling of "parlour". Anyway a parlour guitar is probably just a ukulele on steroids.)

Hi all,
It's certainly a relief to have that spelling mystery cleared up.  I reckon we can all rest easier now.
All best,
Johnm

I agree that spelling was really worrying me as well, should you change it Parlor Plonker now you are uke bound  :-\

Ha ha, I like it.  :D  I'll give it some thought, Richard.

There - I just did - no!
