Video Thunderdome!

Ukulele Battlets-thunderdome1

This week’s Video Thunderdome! is a little different. This week, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain will be taking on Jake Shimabukuro. Chances are you have no clue who they are. A lot of people don’t know who they are and that is too bad.

First up is Jake Shimabukuro. Jake is a ukulele version of Eric Clapton and Jimmi Hendrix rolled in to one. This guy can rock a ukulele like nobody’s business. As you are watching this video, keep an eye on his right hand. The video isn’t sped up, he really is playing that fast.

Next up is The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. They have a ton of videos on YouTube that are worth checking out. You can see their version of the Isaac Hayes song Shaft here. It’s definitely worth a look. For this Thunderdome, it’s time to crank out Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit.

K.D. Lang kicked Joss Stone’s ass last week to come out on top, as well she should have. Give this week’s challengers a look and cast your vote.
