While my Uke gently weeps

I wrapped a newspaper ’round my head
So I looked like I was deep

Yep, Jake's pretty cool. There's a nice little interview in June's GuitarPlayer.

Also check out these guys doing Pink Floyd on Ukes.

thats awsome. What wonderful tone he has! I've been thinking about a uke for awhile now, looks like a fun instrument.

Anyone know how they are tuned?

Theres 4 sizes of ukes: soprano, concert, (i can't remember) and baritone. The bari is tuned the same as the 4 higher strings on a git DGBE, so its a natural for guitar players. I can't remember the tuning on the others.

ukes are very cool. four strings is all you need.
sopranos are the smallest ukes. most common. they are tuned l;ow to high
G C E A.

I used a uke in a recording posted over at Hear here
