A few years ago I saw Jake on YouTube. It inspired me to take up the Uke myself. I loved it. Whenever I play it for people (and I'm not very good) the expectations are so low that even a simple song is a triumph. If I had a guitar, the enjoyment of others would be significantly lower.

I'm a designer. I find management of expectations is one of the most important tasks I perform. Great vs. "Meh" come down to expectations.

One of the things that impressed me about Jake's TedxTokyo performance was the gentleness and grace that came through as he played each peace with reverence and delight. Thanks for challenging my expectations about the ukulele.
