“If you have questions about ukulele chords, Chord Shapes has the answers.” ~ James Hill

Sixteen Tons by Manitoba Hal

Here’s an ‘ukulele being played in an interesting context. See for yourself, but I think it demonstrates very well that intensity and soul is always the most important factor in any performance.

Manitoba is an interesting find. He made the switch from guitar to ‘ukulele because “…people seemed compelled to communicate about their life when the uke is played. I like that.”

    Hal has so much soul. When opens his mouth and strikes that uke there is no way you can ignore him. You just naturally have to rock and sway. Love it.
