Ukuleleaya plays "Crazy G" on customized cake ukulele

Hello, I am a ukulele player I lives in Tokyo , Japan.
This ukulele is "Cake ukulele" I decorated.
It might be tasty. But I can not eat.
This cream is Imitation and
ice cream is made of clay.
This ukulele can be good played.
I played "Crazy G" with this cake ukulele.


  1. Mark’s had a uke fetish for almost as long as I’ve known him. But don’t worry too much, it’s an infectious fetish.

  2. What a delightful meme you have going here Mark!

    I’m thinking it might just be time to get myself a Ukulele. Does anyone know if there are good quality kits available?

  3. You guys beat me to it – there’s an unhealthy obsession with the uke here. Maybe it’s a West Coast thing – being close to Hawaii than the non uke lovers on the East Coast.

  4. I’m beginning to get the impression that I should have bought a ukulele instead of a guitar last year – like I’m missing the next hot musical trend or something.

    Not that me missing any sort of trend, musical or not, would be anything new and noteworthy.

  5. I love the “pretty girl playing ukulele” posts, Mark. I fall in love with every one of them. Imagine if my wife only knew, way back when, that the direct path to my heart was through a competently-played ukulele song by a pretty girl. We might have saved the expense and hardship of several years of courting.

    I certainly had no idea.

  6. I approve of these posts, but why no love for the banjolele? If you’re going to go for cute girls with silly instruments, no point in stopping half way!

  7. @#7 I think the further you get from Hawaii, the more quaint and cute the ukulele seems. Luckily for most of you, the entire continental united states is far from Hawaii. I think I am underwhelmed by it in the same way that someone who lived in africa for a while was probably underwhelmed with Paul Simon when Graceland came out.

    For all of you that are lusting after ukuleles, the best commercial ukulele manufacturer in Maui when I lived there was They have decent starter ukes at affordable prices that sound great and don’t need to be retuned every 4 minutes. They make nice guitars too (although I think I prefer my collings to anything I ever played there).

    If you’ve played guitar, picking up the uke is about as tricky as picking up the bass guitar (ie, easy to at least fake- chords are simple, strings are floppy, and only 4 strings to manage).

  8. Hey Mark,

    I’ve enjoyed your Ukulele videos for a long time now. I think you and Youtube has really started a new trend in Ukulele appreciation.
    I don’t know if you saw any video by sweetafton23 on Youtube or not. I particularly love her cover of Jonathan Coulton’s Tom Cruise Crazy and think you might enjoy it as well.
    Ukulele + Jonathan Coulton = Win.

  9. I’ve gotta second Adam Stanhope’s sentiments above, (and those who posted after). I find myself dreaming of a ukelele-playing harem these days. We owe you, Mark.

  10. this woman deserves BB find of the year –
    cutegirlUke+selfmadedecorativecakeUke+Nihonglish all together?! damn
