Jake Shimabukuro’s Ukelele
Wow! This dude, Jake Shimabukuro, plays a mean ukelele. Yes, ukelele – all four strings and two octaves of it. Check out his cover of While My Guitar Gently Weeps or his live performance with an electric uke.
Known for lightning fast fingers and revolutionary playing techniques, Jake Shimabukuro is a master of the ukulele. The 28 year old shatters musical boundaries. Not only does he play styles previously “taboo” on the four-string, two-octave instrument, but he is creating music never before thought possible. While Jake has great respect and love for traditional Hawaiian ukulele music, his mission is to show everyone that the ukulele is capable of so much more.
