The Love Cats: Ukulele Edition

Despite being under lockdown, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has been keeping us entertained with a steady series of work from home performances, this time offering up a playful and jaunty cover of The Cure’s 1983 track The Love Cats, with smooth vocals by Laura Currie, who also served as the video’s editor.

The musicians of George Hinchliffe’s Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain do their part to bring a little cheer into our homes during the lockdown with a special quarantine edition of Gnarls Barkley’s hit Crazy. The ukuleles add a richly-layered sound to the track, while the lead vocals are a pleasant surprise.

During an appearance at Paste Magazine’s NYC studio, the talented Jake Shimabukuro performed a soulful rendition of Pink Floyd’s classic, eking crazy amounts of emotion out of his little ukulele. While there he also played Bohemian Rhapsody, his original When The Masks Come Down, and Hawaiian folk song Wai’ alae.

Ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro and his fellow musicians turn in an outstanding performance of The Beatles classic Eleanor Rigby, with the uke complemented beautifully by Jerry Douglas‘ artistry on the lap steel guitar. From the album The Greatest Day.

Muse Ukulele Medley

Black Holes and Revelations is one of our favorite Muse albums. EatMyUke is a fan too, and put together this great medley from the album, including Starlight, Supermassive Black Hole, and Knights of Cydonia, which sounds particularly great on the ukulele.

Smooth Ukulele Criminal

The last time we checked in with the talented young Feng E, he was entertaining audiences in the park. Now he’s wowing us from the back seat of a car, and asking Annie if she’s okay with a fantastic ukulele cover of Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal.

Feng E may only be 10 years old, this kid sure can play ukulele. Watch him jam out amazing covers of Classical Gas, Blackbird, and Beat It, then check out more of his performances on both uke and guitar on his YouTube channel.

Ukulele Voodoo Child

Ukulele Voodoo Child

Jimi Hendrix was a master of the electric guitar. But we could never imagine one of his fiery hot tracks played on something so jangly as a ukulele. Well color us impressed. Sit back, crank up the speakers, and enjoy this fantastic uke cover of Voodoo Child, played by James Hill.

Californication on Ukulele

Californication on Ukulele

EatMyUke is currently on a quest to learn how to play his 50 favorite albums of all time on the ukulele. Given how well he performed The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Californication, we think he’ll have no problem achieving his goal. That’s Matt Deakin chipping in on the drums.

Hava Nagila: Surf Style

Hava Nagila: Surf Style

Musician Bjoern Angermann gives the folk classic Hava Nagila a fresh coat of paint by mashing it up with the 1960s surf rock sound of Dick Dale. If Pulp Fiction took place in Israel, this would have been on the soundtrack.

Playing the World’s Smallest Ukulele

Playing the World’s Smallest Ukulele

It’s hard enough to get adult-sized digits in the right neck positions on a normal ukulele, so we have no idea how musician Ian Emmerson managed to cram his fat fingers in the proper spots to play this ridiculously tiny instrument.

Jake Shimabukuro: Blue Haiku

Musician Jake Shimabukuro delivers a soul-stirring track from his new album Nashville Sessions, as he yet again demonstrates how he’s one of the world’s greatest ukulele players. (Thanks Tim!)

Rumours on a Ukulele

Rumours on a Ukulele

A fun medley of tunes from Fleetwood Mac’s classic album Rumours, played on ukulele by musician Eat My Uke. While we miss the vocals, we’re reminded just why this is one of the greatest albums of all time, and must go put it on the turntable right now.
