Wow, this is pretty cool. The ukulele is making a big comeback in the States thanks to singer Eddie Vedder's extraordinary command of it. Before that we had gag singer Tiny Tim with his warbling falsetto and trusty ukulele rendition of "Tip-toe Through the Tulips". I'm glad Hayley is getting behind this cute little instrument.
