A quick round up of my favourite ukulele videos uploaded to YouTube recently (in no particular order).
Mark ‘JazzUkes’ Occhionero – A Blossom Fell
A version of a song best known, to me at least, in a version by Nat King Cole. The chords for which you can find here.
Brian Hefferan – Foggy Mountain Breakdown
A blistering version of the tune made famous by the banjo of Earl Scruggs. You can see Scruggs playing the tune along with Steve Martin (yes, the ukulele playing Steve Martin), Jerry Douglas and Albert Lee here.
Mercedes Landazuri – El Chulla QuiteÃ±o
There are plenty of great performances up from the recent New York Uke Fest, but this one caught me completely by surprise. I had, and still have, no idea who he is. But, judging by these performances, I want to hear a lot more from him.
