I Have Heard Of Virtuosos before,

playing instruments like, piano, guitar, violin,

but I had never heard of ukulele virtuosos, until now, not just one, but six of them playing the miniature guitar-like instruments and one actual guitar, as you might have guessed from the picture above, courtesy YouTube / UkuleleOrchestra / Produzioni Europee Associati, they are playing Sergio Leone’s 1966 Spaghetti Western theme but instead of the legendary whistling and yodelling score there’s a ukulele, here is the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s cover of Ennio Morricone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly theme, Ennio Morricone’s most legendary score, 

if you have time grab a coffee and have a listen it is so surprisingly good and in places so funny.
