  1. Its mesmerizing to watch her play Mercury. Sometimes I feel that its impossible for my fingers to play any fast and then I watch that video to remind myself that it is truly possible. Thanks for sharing some motivating stuff for a beginner.

  2. She is incredible. I was mesmerized through all of Neptune’s Storm – I love the sound of that baritone. And I’m still such a beginner it never even occurred to me that a person could change the tuning like that! I have a tenor, and I specifically bought a tenor because I knew it was the upper size limit for my tiny fingers and because it has the fuller sound. I’m still stuck in the chord phase of learning but I want so badly to someday be able to play like this, or I’d even be happy with “slack key ukulele” as I call it. Music with more depth than just the chords. Slowly but surely, I guess.

    Thanks for posting videos of all these amazing artists! It’s really nice to be able to just watch them play, without distracting angles or shot changes or other such things that you tend to see in music videos. Being able to clearly see hands moving is educational in itself.
