    His name is Jake Shimabukuro. Another great uke player you might wanna check out is Bill Tapia, 99 yrs old but still going strong!

    Of course, his name is shown in the intro. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the info. :)

    [edit] just done some searching, and I feel a bout of GAS coming on.

    I bought a slightly nice tenor uke a few weeks back- a step up from your standard souvenir from Hawaii. It's got a pick up and good tuners. Man, I absolutely cannot keep my paws off the thing. My poor wife is going insane, I'm playing uke day and night. It's such a simple instrument that it's really addictive. I can kind of see why George Harrison kept one in every room in his house.

    That's pretty cool to see a uke orchestra all the way in the UK! We don't even have one here.
  7. I saw Taj Mahal and the Hula Blues Band last summer. They had a 3-man uke section!
