Starter for 20 – Some Great Uker YouTube Channels!

There are so many fabulous ukers out there on You Tube!  A limitation of this list is that consists of YouTube Channels – not individual videos.  There are some great ukers, and whole genres, missing simply because I could not find a dedicated YT Channel, eg. no Del Ray, very little uke-blues.  The other reason is that I got a bit bored with making lists after the first twenty . . .

But – tell you what – my current favourite uke video is . . .  Brittni Paiva – “Tell U What”:

Comments and suggestions for additions are most welcome!  There is a comment box below . . .
