Ukulele Weeping

Just been completely blown away by a four minute video of a guy sitting on a bench in Central Park playing George Harrison's While My Guitar Gently Weeps, on ukulele. Listen. Take the time. Thanks to ysmarko for the link.

this guy has his own website, where you can listen to a few more clips, and buy CDs. I'm quite tempted to get one. It'll have to wait though for a bit.

After you listen to the ukele player, take a look at how to lose your job in 26 seconds. starts slowly, yuk in the middle but with a twist at the end.

didn't quite know what to look for at first, but once I noticed - very funny!

Fantastic ukelele playing. Of course, George himself loved playing it too - being a George Formby fan. As a tribute to George, Paul McCartney sang "Something" solo to a ukelele at Manchester a couple of years ago.
