We've heard about jamming on a guitar, but jamming on an ukulele? Music virtuoso and Hawaiian sensation Jake Shimabukuro proves you can rock out on the ukulele. He started playing when he was 4, and rocketed to YouTube fame when he played George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." Jake tells us why the guitar's little cousin is making a name for itself, and how he makes it croon everything from Bach to Michael Jackson's "Thriller."
Jake Shimabukuro performs at the John Ascuaga's Nugget Hotel and Casino in Sparks on June 11 at 8 p.m.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
