Shimabukuro's Ukulele 'Gently Weeps'

January 12, 2012

Jake Shimabukuro believes music is the greatest gift, and the ukulele is the friendliest way to present that gift to the world.

Jake Shimabukuro’s life is centered on the ukulele — it’s been that way since he was 4 and picked up a “uke.”

“My mom played and taught me my first few chords,” Shimabukuro said. “I started strumming mainly traditional Hawaiian music has a child.”

Later, though, Shimabukuro enjoyed the challenge of trying to play other styles of music on the four string, two octave instrument, such as jazz, classical or rock.
