THat's pretty amazing! Most of us would think of the ukelele as a "toy" instrument, so to have someone play like that is totally different to what we have heard.

On a lighter note, check youtube for the Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain. Their cover of "Shaft" is hysterical!

Holy ****... makes me wanna hang the guitar up, looks effortless to him.

So that's what all that "practicing" stuff is about.

Even still this is one of the better versions I've heard. And speaking of the Uke and George Harrison...the tribute concert with Joe Brown playing "I'll see you in my dreams"....vicious.
