Thanks for the Ukulele and the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
The ukulele well-played has commanding simplicity and passion. I like Smells Like Teen Spirit, and this version. The song is imbibed with Nirvana and Kurt Cobain’s raw energy; and the ukulele brings that out beautifully, while precise plucking of strings tenderly draws out the angst of – as it’s introduced in this video – “…a teenager in love”.

what a fun post! thanks for finding it and sharing it.
You’re welcome Steve. Stumbled on that when I was learning Smells Like Teen Spirit..which I should try again!
The sound of a ukulele always makes me smile. Even the name is funny! 🙂
It is funny – yet I think it’s actually quite mystical, a magical instrument! For witches and warlocks… hobbits! 🙂
