Charango

At a birthday party for a uke player, one of the guests appeared with a 10 string Bolivian instrument called a charango. The first eight strings were tuned like a ukulele (G,C,E,A), so the uke players all wanted to play it. The other two strings were tuned as an “extra” E. I predict a big run on charango videos on YouTube while everyone scrambles to learn more about this delightful instrument.
