    Default Making Music Videos with Greg Hawkes

    Watch a video about making videos with Greg Hawkes of The Cars:

    Greg's music took an exciting new direction in 2001 when his wife gave him a "Fluke" as a gift. He has been hooked on Ukulele ever since. "It made playing music fun again" he says.

    Greg started collecting Ukuleles and getting involved in the ‘Uke' scene in and around Boston. Greg's experimental nature led him to try duplicating Beatles string parts on Ukulele. Longtime friend, Elliot Easton of the Cars, heard his Uke recording of "Eleanor Rigby" and suggested he send it to Dick Boak, Artist Relations, at The Martin Guitar Company for their "My Favorite Martin Series." Dick Boak loved it, and introduced him to James Jensen at Solid Air Records who suggested doing a whole CD of Beatles songs. Greg turned to friend and music producer Perry Geyer at Cybersound in Boston. Together, they produced 15 Beatles song instrumentals (over 45 minutes of music), using multi-tracked "UKEsymphonic" recordings to create a Ukulele orchestra style.

    Cool video and a good resource for Cars arrangements.

    Is there someone on this forum named Beatlesuke? Is it the same guy?
