Say What? Ukulele!

A few years back as I was squandering time  learning valuable things on youtube, I discovered this gem. You’re probably familiar with While My Guitar Gently Weeps, with its robust electric guitar. If you appreciate that, then you have to hear what Jake Shimabukuro can do with this instrument. It’s sweet initially and then intense. It’s amazing. Have a listen.
