“Play Loud ʻUkulele” DVD by Jake Shimabukuro – Review

Play Loud Ukulele is one of Jake Shimabukuro‘s two DVDs. This video is great because there are lots of opportunities to  watch his fingers. I still have yet to see a better ʻukulele DVD. The concert part of the video includes most of Jake’s pre-2004 hits. The other part of the disk is full of music videos and lessons from Jake himself. In the lessons he teaches some of the techniques that he often uses including the legendary ten-finger strum! He also shows how to play the Beatles’s Yesterday.

I'm an 'ukulele artist from Honoka'a, Hawai'i, where I run this site from a little plantation house in the jungle. I've taught workshops internationally, made Herb Ohta Jr. laugh until he cried, and once borrowed a uke to jam with HAPA onstage in my boardshorts. More about me
