He also happens to be a member here on UU, under the name Rclifford13 if I'm not mistaken.
I now salute you, sir.

Lot's of passion in his playing. I see he's using the Canadian tuning on the James Hill model as well.

I'll be a little critical here. Jake and thejumpingflea (Matt) are both smoother, but this kid is good. I am sure he'll just keep getting better. He has a few minor meter issues and the ukulele does not hold tune as well as Jake's Kamaka. One Note Samba was better than "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", and a lot smoother, too. I'd bet he has played it a lot longer.
