George Harrison was a great fan of ukelele music. I'm sure he'd approve of this guy

Thanks Note Boat, I had lost that link :D Its amazing how much tone he gets out of that thing!! The Ukulele is certainly a serious instrument 8) --the dog

I'll bet George would've gotten a kick out of this guy. Awesome!

Jake is great. I learned of him last year.

did you know that Harrison composed many songs using the uke.

Was that a baritone uke? It seemed kind of long.

Jake plays a tenor, actually. A bit shorter than a baritone - about 26" instead of 30" long. The 'standard' ukelele is a soprano, which is about 21".

I showed a good friend and lead guitarist that today. He's a cool cucumber that doesn't get impressed too often. He was like, :shock: "that is the best performance I've ever seen on a UKE." We marveled over that all afternoon.

Funnier yet, I was at another person's PC later on and noticed he'd forwarded my link to him...heheh. This guy will be well know by the end of the week on our area. :wink:
