Uke-Song: "WHILE MY UKE WORDLESSLY SINGS", a tribute to Jake

ORIGINAL SONG: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" written by George Harrison, and recorded by the Beatles for their 1968 album "The Beatles". 

JAKE'S RENDITION: Jake Shimabukuro had started playing instrumental ukulele as a band member, but in 2002 broke into a solo career. In 2006, a video of Jake's virtuoso rendition of the Beatles song became one of the first to 'go viral' on that site, and has accumulated 16 million hits. The author of this blog has been privileged to attend three Jake concerts in the last 5 years; recently these have included guitar collaborators and a few vocals, but the emphasis remains on instrumental ukulele. 
PARODY COMPOSED: Dr. G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, January 2019, as "While My Uke Wordlessly Sings".
