Paul McCartney played the uke in tribute to George Harrison at a recent concert.
"George [Harrison] was a great ukulele player and whenever you went to his house, he'd play it at the end of the night. I showed him I could play the song on the ukulele and tonight I'd like to do it now as my tribute."
