    Default Aldrine & Jake "Something"

    I know, I know. Some of us have seen this video before. But, it is my favorite Jake video (and Aldrine is no slouch, either! No uke in this one for Aldrine).

    I come back to it as an example of pure dynamic range--subtle to loud-- and awesome string bends. I could listen to this a million times and never tire of it. George Harrison's, Something.

    For those new to UU, or old friends who have not yet seen this, Jake and Aldrine on a sunny day, impromptu at a cafe table. And the uke solo. Wow. Just, wow.

    Mahalo.

    Man...I can't believe I haven't seen this one. I continuously watch the tribute w/ Prince and that is my favorite guitar solo. This one is right behind it. Thanks for sharing Steve.

    No uke for Aldrine because Jake is playing Aldrine's uke.

    What?! Come on Daniel! I have probably watched that video like 50 times. I always try to play to it, but mess up.

    I've watched Aldrine's version several times so I can learn how to play. I love the roosters in Aldrine's video..reminds me of Waipahu or Kihei on Oahu.

    Those people casually walking by the table have no idea how much ukulele talent consumes the air around them.

    Agree, 808! Arguably, the two best ukulele players in the world, at one table. They have no clue.

    Steve and Daniel et al: let's thank, Dominator. You, too, can play like Jake!

    I had no clue that was Aldrine's K, m. Thanks. Appreciate the comments.

    Even though some of us could play the song, few of us could do all the nuances of Jake. He makes it special. So subtle.

    Agreed! I wish I could see how he plays as the vocal version is diff't version than the instrumental.
