Chuck Moore’s astounding inlaid instruments are the inspiration for the cover story. Daniel Ho talks about his recent exploration of ukulele and classical guitar with celebrated guitarist Pepe Romero and Pepe Romero Jr, who made the ukuleles and guitars on the duos wonderful album Aloha España. And since ukuleles and online video are so deeply intertwined, we made it the focus of our UkeTube special issue. In it you’ll find a feature on 5 favorite ukulele video stars, advice from Sarah Maisel on getting the most out of your Skype lessons, plus tips from Craig Chee on making the best videos with the least amount of gear. We also have a rowdy roundup of banjo-ukuleles, the gorgeous new Martin 0X Uke Bamboo, and reviews of the latest music and books. Plus, cocktail recipes and uke club favorites!​
