Classical and fingerstyle Ukulele

11 2010

Once more, Al displays amazing skills in his ukulele version of Offenbach‘s Orpheus in the Underworld.

Al‘s fingers move at the pace of the Infernal Galop on the fingerboard, and I still wonder how one can move so accurately along the fretboard at such a speed. Hardly human this…

Other nice instrumentals this week include Tears wet the Tumen River by Cho / Happy Bear from South-Korea. Thanks Jeff for mailing me about this Korean player.

Short and sweet, Tim from Texas, US, plays some bluegrass ukulele, with his great arrangement of Red Haired Boy.

Time to visit Ireland via Hong Kong with this nice blend of ukulele and tin whistle performed by Tak and Lok.

Not a recent video but here is a beautiful ukulele duet of a Rigaudon (a dance from Provence) by Jean-Baptiste Lully.

    I like Tim’s walk over his uke’s fingerboard!

    Thanks very much for the feature, Armelle. Sorry it’s take so long for me to comment – it’s been a bit of a nightmare week!

    Have you seen the recent series of fingerstyle
    videos by Phil Doleman, Armelle? The Evisham Stick
    Dance, The Chirping of the Lark, Move Now with Measured Speed, and Algiers are quite nice.

    Herman : Tim is a really good player, I agree.

    Al : you’re very welcome. I hope your site problems are sorted now.

    SchnellyBelly : I have indeed. Phil started posting them the evening my post was published which explains why he was not featured in this post. I have bookmarked his videos for use in a future post though.

    Tim: You’re welcome. I enjoy all your videos. You are a very skilled player.
