Eddie Vedder Of Pearl Jam Ukulele Album-how Cool Is That!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I know in recent weeks I have been ranting on about how great the Ukulele is here at Street Articles and on my Ukulele site, how amazing it sounds and how it is becoming one of the fastest growing popular instruments to learn how to play, and now, I am one hundred percent convinced that all the above is true when you read the great new I'm about to tell you.

As all fans of the amazing Seattle band Pearl Jam will know, Eddie Vedder is a keen Ukulele player and has been known to produce the instrument at his live concerts. This coming May 31st he is about to release a solo album of Ukulele songs accompanied by a live recorded concert DVD and it has drawn quite a stir amongst regular fans but also in the Ukulele community.

The Album comes under the name “Ukulele Songs” and will feature sixteen tracks of original and cover tunes including a cover of the opening track “Can't Wait” from Pearl Jams 2002 Album “Riot Act” which already has an excellent video that must be seen for any die hard or new fan.

The DVD is called “Water On The Road” and was filmed at a live concert in 2008 in Washington D.C.'s Warner Theater. It is a pure Ukulele playing live concert and I honestly eagerly can not wait to see how it has turned out (wish I was at it).

For Ukulele players or people learning to play this is exciting news. Seriously, how cool is that one of rocks legends is devoting a whole album and live concert and tour to the beautiful sound of the Ukulele.

In recent years the popularity of the Ukulele has sky rocketed. People like myself have taking up this instrument and began the mission of learning to play the Ukulele. With so many top celebrities now brandishing a Ukulele in their famous hands, the rise in the amount of people wanting to learn to play Ukulele can only rise and this is fantastic and exciting.

Eddie Vedders solo album is sure to be a huge hit. The sweet strong amazing voice he has and the timid yet striking sound of the Ukulele at one together can only be a winner (thanks Charlie Sheen for ruining that word for me) and you can see this will be huge with the excellent Eddie Vedder videos playing the Ukulele doing the rounds. I hope a WORLD tour is on order and he heads this way to Ireland so I can chill out and listen to the sweet sound of amazing talent.
