Being new to the fever, I haven’t learned of a lot of the famous top ukulele players yet, but maybe that doesn’t matter much. There are many trendy pop musicians that have featured some ukulele in their songs, but one classic player and my favorite is the late George Harrison. Perhaps he’s not as well known for his playing of the ukulele as he was for guitar and the songs he wrote and performed as a solo artist, one of The Traveling Wilburys, and another band that had something to do with a BUG. The Beatles? Something like that. 🙂 Anyway, in the few videos on youtube where you can see him playing uke, he demonstrates the heart and passion he had for the instrument and the music. and I find that inspiring. Here’s a short video that I hope you will enjoy. In it Tom Petty describes some of George’s fondness for ukuleles and you get a small sample of his music at the end. Play on.
