While My Ukulele Gently Weeps

The late George Harrison was my favorite Beatle. He may have been overshadowed, so far as the general public was concerned, by Paul and John, but his spiritual depth, gentleness, and humility appealed greatly to me as did his songwriting. For instance, Frank Sinatra is reputed to have called "Something" "the greatest love song of the last 50 years." Another of my favorite Harrison songs was "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." Here is a clip of a guy named Jake Shimabukuro playing a beautiful rendition of this song on a ukulele.
