Mad Ukulele Skills

My Ukulele

When I was in high school, I purchased a ukulele and learned how to play a handful of songs. It was a lot of fun, and I kind of wish I still had that old uke.

A couple of years ago, I ran across a video on YouTube of a guy playing George Harrison’s song “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” on the ukulele. The musician’s name is Jake Shimabukuro, and his ukulele skills are unbelievable.

  1. Mad skills indeed. I wish I had learned to play the guitar, or the ukelele or the piano or something like that. But I didn’t…so I’ll have to settle for the enjoyment of listening to others play.
