Lai Youttitham, a guitar player, pulled this ukulele out of the garage one day, figured out how to tune it, and began jamming on it. The result was this original instrumental composition, which, though it remains untitled, has received many views and fan compliments.

Lai, who goes by “i’M Lai” on the video sites, was born in Laos, where he lived the first 19 years of his life. At 19 he made up his mind to leave Laos. He crossed the Mekong River (“luckily didn’t get shot”) and was put in a refugee camp. From money sent to him by his brother and sister for food, he saved to buy a used guitar. Determined to make it to Canada, he secured an interview by a Canadian to determine if he would make a good citizen of that country. Eventually he was allowed to emigrate to Canada, where he gained citizenship  three years later.

Lai normally plays a mean electric guitar, but here he gives us an opportunity to see that he is really a master of the strings whatever the instrument.

polarispkk says:

MsAppassionata says:

Umm. Tasty. Sweet as a Geogia peach.

Katie Greer says:

awesome :)

hogmjr says:

seriously, you have to name it and make it a tab. it will become famous

unANIMATOR says:

ukulele chords are much eaier than guitar. since the strings are set up differently.

hogmjr says:

its an Ibanez UKS-10

CapnTac says:

It’s like saying “Which is better, an apple or an orange?” It really depends on the person answering the question. Personally, I have excelled on ukulele, and I’m a much better Uke player than I am a guitar player, although I’ve been playing guitar longer. I hope this helps.

ventje31 says:

they say the chords are easier :D

iamthesaxmaster says:

Way easier

BennyandtheDRUMMER says:

Great :)

MrSanktjakob says:

can i get a file?

sportlikeawhale says:

You are incredibly talented…I obviously don’t need to tell you this::::
Keep it up man…. you got soul.

LaiYouttitham says:

It’s probably easier, but it could be because i already play guitars, I think the chalenging part is they only have 4 strings and we have to get every string ring usefully.

MrThomasLeach says:

im buying a ukulele i was wondering, is it harder or easier to play than a guitar?

babaluboo123 says:

Beautiful!
Is this your own composition?

TheDragonFlicker says:

If you could tab this, I would love you forever.

lvl3rangepk says:

thank you very much :D, ill just get one of each then ^^

LaiYouttitham says:

Yes, this one i’m using has a lower string at the top but myother one has a higher string.

lvl3rangepk says:

hey does this ukulele have the low string where it usually should be, or is there a high string there? i mean the string thats closest to your face :P,dont know what its called but i want to learn the song and need to know what kind of ukulele to buy, anyone responding would be great! especially the person that made the video :D
