Stringed Instruments

At this time of year, as we know, angels are bending near the earth to touch their harps of gold.

John Naughton is posting links to an amazing interpretation of Pachelbel’s Canon on the electric guitar.

And I’m reposting a link to Jake Shimabukuro, who is bending near the earth in Central Park to touch his ukulele of gold. This piece transformed my view of the ukulele (which, I readily admit, wasn’t very well-developed beforehand!). (Update – that link is now dead. Try here.)

May you all have a musical, happy and peaceful Christmas!

While my ukulele gently weeps…

A truly fabulous version of ‘While my guitar gently weeps’ played on the ukulele by Jake Shimabukuro.

Thanks to the Creative Generalist blog for this and lots of other great stuff.
