Jake don't play the bari! And Charlie don't surf!!

Who's the best? Greg Bennett is the only guy that's impressed me yet...

Post your videos for my amusement...

I'd have to say Kimo Hussey is one of the better baritone players I've seen on YouTube.

Yes I will second that. Kimo also plays the songs of my era.

Of course one's answers depends on individual tastes - but I really like Kimo Hussey. Alyssa sounds pretty darn good too :).

My vote goes to Benny Chong and Kimo Hussey as well.

Marvin Falcon, who was my guitar teacher in the 1970s, is pretty darn good!

That video is the reason I bought a Kamaka baritone ukulele.

Speaking of gals who play baritone ukuleles, here's Danielle Ate The Sandwich playing her Mya-Moe baritone.

Aloha Stan, and mahalo for the secret. Do you know if he'd give a lesson to someone who's just passing through and will only be able to take one or two classes? I'm probably going to be in Honolulu this July for the ukulele festival in Waikiki. and would love to take a class. By the way, I'm guessing that Terry is the "unko terry" Allysa thanks for the baritone Kamaka in the description of her "Classical Gas" video.

Hey Mark, you're going to the festival? I'll be there again too.

Aloha Stan. Thanks for the heads up. It would be cool to take ukulele lessons in Honolulu, and I know that Roy Sakuma will be kinda busy the week of his big Waikiki festival. I noticed that Allysa doesn't play that baritone in some of her videos, but she got herself a nice bari.

Hey, Gary. I'm going to try to go. I've already booked the vacation time at work. I watched part of the festival online last year and thought "What am I doing not being there?"

By the way, the group of which my Monday night ukulele class is a part, the Kapalakiko Hawaiian Music Workshop Band, is playing again at this year's Northern California Ukulele Festival in Hayward on Sunday April 1. You should come if you can. It's a fun festival and Kamaka has a booth there (Chris Kamaka plays there every year with his band, and he always borrows my ukulele instructor's stand-up bass).

I have always been partial to Kimo Hussey as I have worked with him many times, but Benny can tear it up too! Totally different styles... both masters.

Thanks for that, ukuhippo! I tend to like this guy: http://youtu.be/N0PDhpzvpPg

He's a master of chords, just see how effortlessly he moves up and down the neck. Yeah, Ed's the MAN.

Wow, I like his comment to:
The tuning is supposed to be d g b e but I may have been out of tune. Other than the first chord, C...I don't know the names of the chords. Nothing compicated though.

As for you doc, I'm thinking about putting some wood onto my concrete walls, just to be able to lean against it and try to look as cool as you do on your vids.
This is my favorite so far:
