Like my Aunt Trinnie with her purse, I switch ukulele bags every season.
While transferring the contents from the little pocket of my ukulele bag, I realized that television’s MacGyver would get by very well indeed with all stuff I found.
What I found (and what it’s for):
- Tiny Phillips-head screwdriver–for stabbing a hole in your enemy’s tires OR emergency tuning peg tightening
- Disc battery–tiny electrical jolts can train kidnapper’s dog to bring you the keys to the shed where you’re being held. Also good for uke tuner.
- Black shoelace with hook–perfect for garroting a foe, pull-starting a tiny get-away mower, or as a neck strap for ukulele.
- Bulldog clip–use this on a criminal’s fingertips as interrogation technique, or to hold sheet music on a windy day.
- Business cards–nothing sneaky here. Hey, even MacGyver has to have business cards.
I can’t go into details (for obvious security reasons), but I can mention that I was recently able to escape a containment cell using nothing more than kazoo, a comb, and an egg-shaped rhythm shaker.
Hey–what about you? You can learn my MacGyver-like techniques for twisting the hardest chords of the uke (D and E) into shapes that normal humans can actually play. Get the info on the ukulele E chord learnin’ video course HERE.
