Cavaquinho Kid

I've just bought this little beauty on ebay. It's a cavaquinho. A Portuguese ukulele! I saw one being played at the Cardiff Encontro a couple of years ago and thought it would be great to play one.

Cavaquinhos look somewhat comical at the best of times, they look like a childrens toy guitar, but it's going to look particularly silly when a 6 foot 7 bloke with massive hands plays one! Which is why I bought it of course.

I certainly will! I'm off to Hastings at the weekend to have a go at recording some songs with a couple of friends. I'll post the results (if it comes out any good) next week!
