Video Interview: Ukulele Master Jake Shimabukuro
We spend some time chatting with this amazing player about recording, performing, gear and more.
I’ve always fantasized about playing the ukulele. I’m not sure why.
Perhaps because it’s such a small and delightful instrument.
Perhaps because when I watch someone like Jake Shimabukuro play one, it’s just so stunningly musical and inspiring.
But Shimabukuro takes ukulele far beyond casual strumming and picking out tunes. His performance is decidedly virtuosic. And he’s not a ukulele convert. This player has been committed to ukulele from day one, and it shows.
Launched by successful YouTube views and sustained by faithful fans, Shimabukuro continues to explore uncharted ukulele territory.
Here I sat down with this superb musician and all around cool guy. Check out our interview and then go to www.jakeshimabukuro.com to find out more.
