Jake Shimabukuro Plays “Bohemian Rhapsody” on the Uke




If you’ve never seen Jake Shimabukuro handle the ukulele before, you’re in for a little treat. Known for his complex fingerwork, the ukulele virtuoso now tours with Jimmy Buffet and has recorded with Yo-Yo Ma. Meanwhile his fab recording of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” has clocked 7,000,000 views on YouTube, all of which sets the stage for this: Shimabukuro bringing his act to the TED 2010 stage. For more ukulele fun, don’t miss The Complete Beatles on Ukulele.
