Great Performances: James Hill Plays Ukulele With Chopsticks And A Comb


A friend of mine posted this video on my Facebook wall, knowing full well I wouldn't be able to resist posting it on my website. I am always on the lookout for people doing innovative things in music performance, and this is definitely unique. It's probably not an innovation that will revolutionize - well... anything, but it is still entertaining, to say the least. There really is no limit to the human capacity for exploration and curiosity, and no limit to the musician's search for the next new cool sound.


James Hill is a Canadian ukulele wizard who specializes in mixing styles, genres, and sounds. This video is a cell phone shot from the audience at a show in Felton, California in 2011. The audience clamors for an encore, and he gives them a unique one: ukulele played using a pair of chopsticks and a comb. There's quite a lot of lead-in (he starts playing around the 3:50 mark), but his explanation of what he's doing, full of improvised quips, is worth watching.
