Jake Shimabukuro has been called "the Jimi Hendrix" of the ukulele. He blends traditional ukulele music with rock riffs to create a sound of his own. He is most noted for his instrumental rendition of George Harrison's "While my Guitar Gently Weeps." Renowned for lightning-fast fingers and revolutionary playing techniques, Jake views the ukulele as an "untapped source of music with unlimited potential." His virtuosity defies label or category. Playing jazz, blues, funk, classical, bluegrass, folk, flamenco, and rock, Jake's mission is to show everyone that the ukulele is capable of so much more than the traditional Hawaiian music - or corny showbiz routines -- many associate it with.
