I remember stumbling into ridiculously good ukulele videos on YouTube years ago, so it's not a new thing... In some cases, things that weren't meant for ukulele at all... These are good ones, though... Thanks for posting them.
I think cute girls playing bad ukulele has been a thing since the early days of YouTube.
But people playing good ukulele... that is definitely more recent. :-)
Hurrrmmmm. So 6-7 years ago I found this video on youtube of a scottish girl playing ukulele and it was amazing - she was amazing - and I listened to it over and over. And this thread brought it back, but I can't remember her name or the name of the song, and I can't find it and it's driving me nuts because relevant searches just turn up loads of recent links to America's Got Talent videos and such nonsense.
Huh. Actually now I'm wondering if I first discovered the ukeulele thing because of people linking videos here.
Maybe I only remember the bad videos because they outnumber the good videos so damn much
I was at this show! The extra sounds are being done by Negativland, the Duke of Uke injures himself on a ceramic kitten but soldiers through with a nice Alanis Morrisette cover.
I suppose it depends on your metric for cool, but both amanda palmer and eddie vedder have uke albums
I am not ashamed to admit I actually enjoy the Amanda Palmer Uke songs.
I can't recall if I shared this here a year or two ago, or just on facepunch. I know the people on facebreak either loved or hated it...
