Yeah, Jake Shimabukuro is amazing. I am really, really bored of the all the ukelele-hype around and everyone and their dog posting videos of themselves playing some stupid pop tune or other on really poor-quality ukes. But this guy is just an outstanding musician. This improvised bit towards the end reminds me of Rodrigo y Gabriela's stuff.

Yep, me too, on all counts. I was prepared not to enjoy this, but the sheer musicianship won me over. And the fact that he's so obviously enjoying himself, all too rare in music these days.
