This guy is great. I accidently ran across his stuff on YouTube while looking for something else. This is no "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" or Don Ho stuff. I didn't think a uke could sound so good. Really good. There are more videos that are linked off this one too.

I say this politely, but this has been posted more than a few times here. I think I may even have done it once. But still there is no denying that it is beautiful stuff.

Regards,
Paul

The vid is: Jake Shimabukuro plays "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"

Very beautiful piece, and yes, has been posted here before, but easy mistake as it's probably buried somewhere right now.

Sorry for the repost but I hadn't seen it ever posted here. I was completely blown away by his playing especially with an instrument often considered a toy or something brought out for comedic effect.

Yes, it's Jake Shimabukuro playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps in Strawberry Fields in Central Park NY.
