10 Awesome Ukulele Songs
How Can Such Powerful Music Come Out Of Such A Tiny Instrument?
The Ukulele is a stringed instrument and looks like a tiny guitar. Commonly referred to as the Uke, these instruments normally have only four strings (although there are many variations).
I'm always amazed when I hear such powerful music coming out of such a small item. Although many people associate the ukulele with hawaiin music, they can actually be adapted to play all kinds of songs. I've put together my top ten list of best ukulele videos so you can see that
