I think his discography is now big enough for it to be needed on this page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.145.36.86 (talk) 10:52, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Change organization[edit]

Normally, pages on musicians are broken into sections such as "early life" and "career" or something like that that is appropriate. I suggest that the "history" section of this article be broken into multiple sections. Anyone else have any thoughts? Lexandalf (talk) 04:27, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

What instrument?[edit]

What sort of a uke does he play?

I know this is late, but better late than never. It is either tenor or concert, my guess is concert though.12.157.120.212 (talk) 04:35, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

It's a custom made Kamaka Tenor. Aggie80 (talk) 15:01, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Okinawan American?[edit]

His family name "Shimabukuro" is Okinawan family name. It means, his father family is Okinawan Japanese heritage. But, his mother family is a descendent of japanese from north japan, Fukushima pref, not Okinawa. So, it is not correct to call him "Okinawan american". He should be called "Japanese American". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 211.3.59.74 (talk) 07:50, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Documented Virtuoso?[edit]

I found what at least I believe to be sufficient support of that claim in one of the references already listed. This is also supported by the endless string of accolades on his You Tube material. At this point, I feel someone should try to post any references denying such capability if they still feel this is 'original research'. I didn't write the original line, I just feel the OR tag was grossly off target. JascalX (talk) 03:36, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Valuable links[edit]

I'm putting various links here to come back to later.

Rolling Stone article and link[edit]

Posting it here for future reference. I'm using this form because it gives the issue name and (approximate) date (the precise date can be figured out from the issue name): [3]. Softlavender (talk) 02:35, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
