Ukulele Website Maintenance Alert

Hi there! Thanks so much for your interest in Ukulele magazine. 

We've got good news and bad.
The good: tons of ukulele players like you want to visit our site for original stories, videos, reviews, and more!
The bad: so many ukulele players are coming to the site that our server has crashed...

Rest assured, we are hard at work under-the-hood to get things up and running for you. And, there's plenty to do in the meantime:

Jake Takes Over!
We had a special treat on our Instagram page when ukulele superstar (and our current cover artist) Jake Shimabukuro took over our account while on tour last week. Take a peek backstage, where Jake breaks down the 9/8 timing on “Trapped” with his ukulele and shows his excitement for bubble wrap while unboxing gear. Plus, enjoy some of the live performance (you may be surprised to hear which Beatles song Jake put into the setlist for this one!)
