Who's your inspiration?

For me, there's Aldrine, Jake, and AJ Rafael.

Anyone else who I should keep an eye out for? :drool:

Cliff Edwards and Lyle Ritz. There's also Del Rey who gave a Blues Ukulele Workshop when she came through Pittsburgh last
year,that really opened my eyes to the possibilities of blues fingerstyle ukulele.

Jake, Aldrine, Iz, and George Harrison were the first to come to mind.

The late John King (http://www.youtube.com/user/NaluMusic).

He wasn't my initial inspiration but he has become one in the past few weeks.

Initially? Seeso .. saw him on YouTube and HAD to hear more. Lately? Eugene! I love everything Eugene has put out there. His passion for what he does is reflected in every video. Thanks Seeso and Eugene.

Troy Fernandez and James Hill (James is probably the best in the world IMO).
