[00:00:00.00] [MUSIC PLAYING] [00:00:07.20] - George Harrison was one of the great ambassadors of the 'ukulele. He was so passionate about this instrument. So I've always felt a deep connection to him through the 'ukulele, though I've never met him. Here is one of my favorite George Harrison pieces. Here's an arrangement of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." [00:00:30.21] [PLAYING ELECTRIC 'UKULELE] [00:04:02.31] [00:04:02.91] MALE SPEAKER: All right! [00:04:04.11] [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]
