Ok, I know you most of us aren't big fans of a ukulele, but watch these videos. I have never seen someone play this fast before. It almost looks fake but its not. This guy does concerts, tours, the works.

In this one, he doesn't really play fast till the end, but its still a good song all around.

This is an encore he done one time.

Well he's defiantly the best when it comes to playing the ukulele. ?It's amazing what people can do/play with such a small instrument. You see all these guys with like 40 instruments to make a song of epic proportions. And yet this guy matches all of that with one instrument. You can tell by the way he acts and well, his playing itself, that he's been doing it for a while. I hope one day to get that good with my instrument. Just a lot of practice and patience. Good vids btw. ?:x

Here is another vid of him dueting with Tommy Emmanuel, who is just about as good of an instrumentalist as Jake just on the guitar. By the way the first vid and this one is Jake playing the song "When My Guitar Gently Weeps". I've also found another song called "Let's Dance" by Jake. If anyone else finds a recording of a song by him please post it.
