While My Ukulele Gently Weeps

Virtuoso Jake Shimaburo plays George Harrison.
(Quicktime movie)

Harrison played the banjolele and the ukulele, often for his friends, rarely recorded (although he's got two songs on his last album, Brainwashed). Shimaburo though... he plays the uke better than anyone. Better than Tiny Tim, better than George Formby, better than George Harrison. When Jake plays, it sounds like a musical instrument, and not a toy.
