7. Jake Shimabukuro
Jake Shimabukuro is a guy you’ve probably seen on YouTube — that fella who took a ukulele, and mastered it in true virtuoso style. If there are guitar gods in the world of rock ‘n’ roll, then Jake Shimabukuro is a genuine uke god. The native Hawaiian can play anything — including personal compositions — and is so in love with his instrument he believes everyone should pick it up and give it a try. He considers the ukulele an ambassador of joy. What he can do with four strings is nothing less than magical. Rolling Stone referred to him as a musical hero, while living legends like Eddie Vedder have suggested, “Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can’t see anybody else catching up with him.” There’s no doubt: everybody should know this guy.
