While My Guitar Gently Weeps - I am blown away!

That was beautiful and something entirely different from anything I've heard before. This guy is enormously talented. Thanks for sharing.
 
I followed that link with low expectations and, wow, that was good.

I'll never call it "Crap Tube" again.
 
I believe that it can be downloaded free from Google videos, as well as other videos by Jake Shimabukuro, they require the Google video player, also available there.

Imagine if he had a real guitar, instead of that toy.
 
He was playing across the street from the house I was at on Christmas Eve. And he plays a custom Kamaka ukulele.

Is this guy a resident of Hawaii? I think he may have created a whole new way to express music with the Uke. I've never heard it used like that before. He is awesome.
 
Thanks for the link. I'm going to try and track down one of his albums now, he's got a very eloquent, expressive style.

Yeah, he grew up here and played in a few bands in his younger days, Pure Heart and Colon come to mind. As far as I know, he's been touring in Japan.
 
Depressive, indeed!!!
damn that kid can play!!!
reminds me of when i was that age... classically trained, not obscene to the eye and Asian.

no, i never coulda come up with an original cover like that... if so, you guys wouldn't know me from here. i'd be famous for having several litters of puppies with marilyn manson or someone equally as mainstream. i dunno, i'm just funny sometimes

That just made me smile...for some insane reason. The faster he played, the bigger my smile got.

Quite amazing, very talented individual. Sounds nothing short of beautiful.
