I'll just totally rip off Dori:

Go listen to While my ukulele gently weeps. Really, it's good, and worth your time.

The performer is Jake Shimabukuro, he's got a gig up in Grass Valley this weekend at the California Worldfest, if you're not following us to the Fire Arts Festival, and the clip came from the Midnight Ukelele Disco, which has more of him, and some of the usual ukelele absurdity that's more in line with what you'd expect from the instrument.

Mike Kite told me to check out the ukulele a couple years ago what I was thinking about trying to relearn guitar. I also mentioned I had an affinity for the mandolin but could never quite get the chords (it's tuned in thirds). I could never find a place to buy a uke that was more than just your kiddie-grade toy. Now I'll have to put some real effort into it.

Sounds like you might need to build your own (which I found from these notes on building ukuleles).
