Prepare to forget everything you thought you knew about the Ukulele

His name is Jake Shimabukuro, and he is seriously magical with a ukulele. Check out his response as the audience yells "faster" on a song called "Crazy G".

Here he is doing a cover of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" from the Beatles' White Album. I had thought ukuleles were just kind of kitschy, but this performance is beautiful.
