Really nice track. I have to admit I'd never heard of a cavaco. Had to look that up. Looks like a ukulele, I guess? Does it play like one, too?

They are very similar. As far as I can tell the only major difference is the tuning. The cavaco is a bit higher and is tuned in open G. It also has steel strings and seems fun to play with a pick. I wouldn’t use a pick with a Uke. But a real cavaco player may say that using a pick is wrong. Who knows?

Fun little instrument though

Edit: and thank you!
