I have Jake's Gently Weeps CD and really like his song called Heartbeat/Dragon. I found this vid of a live performance of that song. Wow! Hammer-on's with his right hand...at least I think that's what he's doing. It just blows me away to watch him play.

Its been said that Mozart could break dinner plates just by tapping his fingers on them, cause his fingers were so strong. I bet jake could split coconut trees with his...:cool:

thanks for posting this great vid link.

yeah i can play it up to the part where you have to tap the ukulele 100 times.. i haven't tried it yet because i havn't practise in a while, i just need to practise a hell a lot on the 7979 chord -.- or 9797 - i forget which way it goes.

I had troubble finding the right notes to hammer on there to and I still can't hammer that fast but I'm still practising :)

Dragon is an amasing song. I still can't understand how Jake is able to write something like this :eek:
