The Melodicka Bros turn in a sweet cover version of System of a Down’s classic B.Y.O.B., performed entirely on a pair of ukuleles. Just because they’re playing tiny musical instruments doesn’t mean they can’t shred with the best of ’em.
Ukulele hacking. Yes that’s a thing. Musician James Hill uses a pair of chopsticks and a cheap plastic comb to turn his uke into an analog drum machine and esoteric sound making machine. Skip to 3:45 to dive right in.
It may be a few years old, but we just had to share this performance from a 2010 TED session with musician Jake Shimabukuro. It starts out mellow, but Jake quickly pulls us in with his hypnotic uke skills. Hear more from Jake here.
