The Saturday UkeTube

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

I’m not quite sure what to think about this. Vinyl is Heavy has some opinions and a short history of selling out to the man.

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:

baby elephant walk 2

Earlyguard – Autumn’s Color

Ukulele Bill – I Got Rhythm

Steve James and Del Ray – Dance Hall Shuffle
