Everyone out side the Ukulele box is starting to join the people in the box, who know the name of Jake Shimabukuro, the talented and brilliant Ukulele player known for his complex finger work. Jake is yet another Hawaiian star and will surly reach the legendary stardom of the late Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole, if not there already.
Jake, with his Uke, enters the genres of jazz, blues, funk, classical, bluegrass, folk, flamenco and rock and has been compared to the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis.
Jake is a phenomenal, his hand movements are unreal, attracting people not knowing for liking or knowing about the Ukulele, and also has inspired a generation to start learning to play the Ukulele. Sit back and enjoy this excellent tune composed by George Harrison called “while my guitar gently weeps“.
