Ukulele Beatles Fun!

Yes, you too can learn the uke chords for Beatles songs, at Ukulele Beatles Fun! (“Self-improvement for free.”)

No “Revolution 9” though — I must search on.

[This post is dedicated to my favorite ukulelist and favorite banjoist.]

Check this out if you haven't seen it: "While My Ukulele Gently Weeps", by Jake Shimabukuro. I'm not sure the site you linked to teaches such virtuosic arrangements of the songs, but it's pretty cool nonetheless.

I remember posting and e-mailing the link to that performance a few years ago — JS’s musicianship is unbelievable. Reader, if you haven’t seen the clip, watch it now.

Benjo, here’s one backatcha, not virtuosic, but inventive: the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”

That was a lot of fun! The world seems like a slightly better place, now that I know that a Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain exists.
