View Full Version : Free lessons from Jake's little brother!

I knew Bruce Shimabukuro was a musician who had toured with Jake, but didn't realize he'd released three CDs of his own.

While Bruce Shimabukuro has not reached the level of fame that Jake has enjoyed, he's a solid musician in his own right. In 2006, his debut CD, "Icognito," met with critical acclaim. The CD, which included several other musicians including Jake on guitar, spotlighted Shimabukuro's technical prowess, rock 'n' roll style and strong voice. While Shimabukuro has since cut two more CDs, including one under the Sony label, teaching is his passion for now.

And if you're ever in Honolulu, he gives free classes and workshops. :)

Yup It's me,
Thanks for sharing, Bruce has been around for some time around here, keep'in a lower profile than his
famous brother Jake. But he also has done so much for the hawiian ukulele and guitar movement
behind the scenes and has affected so many in the music movement...
