Why would you play a ukelele when everyone knows that a guitar will get you laid? Girls are not about ukelele players. I think this guy learned that fact too late and thats why he plays songs about guitars instead.

I have never understood why the ukelele became so popular in Hawaii. Were they big George Formby fans?

Umm.because he prob plays 15 differentinstruments besides, guitar, banjo, violin, Cello....

I have a friend who makes quite a lucrative living off his guitar/banjo/ukelele skills.
I could live a year off what he makes a show.

Monson;
WOW! Definately several cuts above your average uke player. Thnaks for the link.

John_Pimbolt;
Pat Metheny has been a fav of mine for years. Thanks for bringing back that stellar preformance.
If you enjoyed that you should check out the links next to it. I found an excellent Charles Mingus Sextet clip.

DIRTY-MAC;
Although I'm not much into heavy metal stuff, I must admit that guy is pretty impressive. Thanks for the links.

The song is George Harrison's 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps', originally recorded by The Beatles (solo by Eric Clapton in the original).

Here are the chords. The arrangement is probably the player's own.

I'm not sure if these chords are right though, you can Google the name of the song plus 'tab' (guitar notation) and you'll find loads of versions of it.

George Harrison was a ukelele enthusiast... he probably would have been flattered by this performance.

Funnily enough George was a member of the George Formby Society...

At first I thought you were taking the p1ss... but that juggling guy is good and it seems to fit with the music surprisingly well.

Thought I'd go with a "fun with Beatles" theme and I remembered seeing this a month ago or so. Apparently its a parody: sort of adds another dimension to the guy's skill. I haven't gone looking for the subject of the parody but I suppose its hysterically funny, too.

A lot of Hawaiians play the Ukelele but it tends more to what the tourists expect. The Slack Key guitar is the less commercialized music form there. Here's one link:

http://www.slackkey.net/

My dad played Hawaiian steel guitar, but in the form used by the popular bands of the 1940's. Slack Key is truelly a great art form.

some of the comments in this thread remind me of a joke I heard a few months ago....

If you play the mouth organ and the guitar at the same time.....everybody thinks your cool like Bob Dylan.

But if you also put cymbals on your knees people will cross the street to avoid you.

Vai is incredible though he does tend to overkill at times - his sound & style is very unique & a great inspiration to many guitarists. About Malmsteen: I've never understood how he could make his sound - I've owned a couple of Strats & all I could make them do at high gain is noise & hum but he's got it really under control - I'll stick to humbuckers http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Monson I know the son of one of the greatest guitar technician and lute maker here in Italy , time ago we were speaking about the Malmsteen endorsing tour ( fender + marshall) and he told me that he was the responsible of the whole organizations of his show in Bologna ( and I think the only one in Italy that year) .
He provides amplifiers, guitars ( the fender malmsteen of course , the one with scalopped neck ) and all the things that malmsteen agents tell to him , by the way, the most important thing was an entire stock of Bud beer http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif.
Obviously the father of my friends , set up the guitars to the best , but when came malmsteen guitars technician and start to working again on the giuitars , my friends said "hey , no need to setting up 'em again ,it's all already done"
The technician smiled and then said " Yingwie had a particular set up for the string , very high from the neck and with different string that provides higher tension "
In effect my friends said Malmsteen hit hard the strings when put his finger on it , he is very tall and have two very big hands , this determine ,in part, his particular way of playing.
For the pick ups he use particular humbuckers that fit the slot of one single coil on his fender, it's the only one way to control the larsen effect when he power on his marshalls at full power.
Malmsteen try to recreate the violin sound and this kind of humbuckers provides a sound like the single coil ones , more closely to the sound he want.

S!

Thx, Gryphon - yes of course - those are not stock fender pickups - he uses DiMarzio HS-3 pickups which work almost like humbuckers so that explains the low noise with high gain http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
