Another bumper crop this week. Jake Shimabukuro’s performance at the SF Ukulele Festival, new Taimane clips and a number of videos from a ukulele get together in Dortmund with a whole bunch of Uke Hunt favourites. Not to mention some ukulele juggling.
Watch more clips including Stephin Merritt reworking a kids’ classic and a GUGUG going solo over the fold.
Stephin Merritt – The Wheels On The Car

Fin Raucous – Crocodile Rock
David Beckingham – Baby Elephant Walk
An excellent version. Some really nice twists in it. I particularly like the extra harmony on the riff at the end. Played like this:
Alternatively, you could play this harmony:
Earlyguard – Autumn’s Color
Ukulele Bill – I Got Rhythm
Steve James and Del Ray – Dance Hall Shuffle
