Instrument of the Week!

I like to greet my classes each week with a song before they enter the classroom... 
and not always with my guitar! This week it's my ukulele:

For more information about this instrument, please check out the link below:

To hear one of the masters of the instrument, please check out this video:

That's Jake Shimabukuro performing George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."

Most kids know of this instrument through Train's "Hey, Soul Sister:"

Have you heard the ukulele anywhere else? Let me know!

(We'll spare each other Tiny Tim's "Tiptoe Through The Tulips," though... ;-)
