Yeah, whack it through a fuzz box and play Hendrix licks :) Or maybe an octave splitter and try to sound like a sitar :))
Oddly enough, I just picked up one of those Boss pedal board thingy's (an ME70) that has three pedals and an expression pedal - so I have access to all of those effects (including a looper). Sort of an idiotic impulse buy since I don't handle the instrument well enough at this point, but I know I'll push it one day and give it a shot!
I think, like alot of people around the world think, this Jake guy is pushing the ukulele envelope totally out of shape.
