That's pretty bad ass.
... makes my fingers cramp, just looking at the fast parts of that!
Wow! Kinda got that gypsy vibe. And she's not bad looking either.

You should check out http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Jake Shimabukuro&aq=f, he is pretty good as well
Anytime I think:
I picture [video=youtube;9YI83Hb6GKU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YI83Hb6GKU[/video]
Just looked up this thread for the link.
Looks like she made the video "unlisted" so you can only see it if you have the link.
I live in Hawaii, Jake Shimabukuro, no others are considered here. Check out a couple covers here, but if you just want fast, he's it.
Sorry man, didn't check out your link before my posts, he's our hero, his kid brother is coming up.....
To be honest. If I wanted to hear those songs I'd look up the non-handicapped 6 -string versions.
The reason I liked that song is because she was out of te box, a little bit exotic and had a fuckin attitude. I know her fundementals lack. But like I said....
Lurker, dude, I just know this guy is on every other TV ad I watch in Hawaii. I have no knowledge about how many strings they are playing or not. I just think he's cool, he's got a great sense of humor if you see his TV commercials and I dig his music. Also, I'm a legal resident of Hawaii, if I don't defend the Ukelele there might be big trouble, people are watching
They let you guys have TV in Hawai'i?
I know man. I don't know shit about it as much as I let on.
I don't know why, but my mind keeps conjuring a weird version of "Iron Man" sung by Tiny Tim, complete with a band using hand bells and musical saws to accompany the ukulele. Think having "Iron Man" moved up an octave or two, with the bigger handbells providing the base line and the musical saws taking the lead to do all the "bendy" parts, and Tiny Tim singing "He was turned to steel, in the great magnetic field...", while doing the guitar chord work on his ukulele, and with the saws and bells holding up the framework in the background! It would be AWESOME! ... or awful.
I'd have to go with "awesome" if for even the novelty of it all.
I have heard Ukelele on TV. It looks like a small guitar and sounds like a small vandorin.
I played the vandorin back in the day which is why I was so surprised to see these people playing a small guitar that sounded so familiar.
Google has failed me. All my attempts at "Vandorin" only give me results for "Vandoren" Saxophones and reeds...
