A Surprisingly Cheerful Jazz Ukulele and Dobro Cover of The Beatles’ Song ‘Eleanor Rigby’

Musicians Jake Shimabukuro (ukulele) and Jerry Douglas (slide guitar) performed a surprisingly cheerful and jazzy cover of the fairly somber song “Eleanor Rigby” by The Beatles. This track is featured on Shimabukuro’s latest album entitled The Greatest Day.

Following this performance, Shimabukuro showed how to play the song on ukulele in a video for Reverb.
