Video Pick: Buster Keaton, Cliff Edwards & a Martin Taropatch

By Greg Olwell

We usually wait until later in the week to announce our video pick of the week, but this one is so outstanding that we’re calling it early: This is the video pick of the week.


Featuring Cliff “Ukulele Ike” Edwards and Buster Keaton, this clip from the film 1930 Doughboys finds Edwards beats the strings with drumsticks while Keaton frets the chords on his Martin Style 3 taropatch 8-string.
