While my Ukulele Gently Weeps...

Ok, seriously you must check this out. I never really gave the "uke" much credence as an instrument, and I think for most people it generally conjures up an image of a grade 4 class strumming away something vaguely recognizable with the kid in the back looking at the ceiling and totally missing his cue. But this guy has serious skill, and makes a ukulele sound as much a musical instrument as any other.

Edit: Thanks Jon for pointing this out. Totally wicked cool.
