I always love when Vai does that fast right hand strumming for some rhythmic parts. But he better watch out for this Jake guy! So should Don Ho! :lol:

very nice :lol:

playing ukulele is lots of fun, got one cheap nylon, big show if you run about noodling the pulp fiction theme (or do some yngwie-stuff on it :roll:)

besides, that's some wonderful melody line that guy's playin'...

That video is so awesome! That's some of the craziest ukulele playing I've seen in a while. :o
I have a baritone ukulele and I like to pull off some cool so-called "shredding" licks on it... like tapping, sweeps, tremelo picking, ect. but this guy owns me! :lol: I would never beat on the strings that hard! The bridge on mine would split off and the strings will certainly break.
It's cool how he has a great melody going on there... unlike the traditional Hawaiian style. I tend to go my own way on ukulele melodies as well but Jake is excellent at it. Jake is so awesome. Thanks so much for sharing!

Cheers
