Monday music: Taimane Gardner does Bach and more... on the ukulele!

It starts a bit nondescript, but hang on... this is a riveting performance.

Fantastic. Lively and very riveting. Fooey on them guitar heros. Here's some real talent.

Thanks!

Nice.

There's a Tiny Tim joke here somewhere, but I can't find it.

Wow. That was fantastic. I never knew ukuleles had pickups built in.

So much for Don Ho.

Good night nurse! Never would I have imagined a uke plugged into 4 or 5 Boss pedals! That was fantastic...

LOVED it!

That's eclectic, all right. Who knew an ukulele could be played like an electric guitar?? (Kinda like that Swedish musician who played the bagpipes like the saxophone!) :)

You do realize that I blame you for the looks my wife gives me for these little eclectic videos that use such outre instruments for classical pieces. She still hasn't forgiven me for bringing pomplamoose into the house just so you know.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry. I want to be a uniter... not a divider.





...and there's more Pomplamoose on the way, in all likelihood.

Ulp.
