Adrian Toro - Waves (Cuatro Cover)
Interesting to note: The Cuatro of Venezuela has four single nylon strings, tuned (A4,D5,F♯5,B4) or (A3,D4,F♯4,B3). It is similar in shape and tuning to the ukulele, but their character and playing technique are vastly different. It is tuned in a similar fashion to the traditional D tuning of the ukulele, but the B is an octave lower.
I have posted a playlist of Adrian Toro's music on The Bad-Ass Baritone Ukulele blog. I like to call it the un-blog because there's very little besides players and YouTube playlists. Including Adrian there are 152 playlists + Men's Singles + Women's Singles + Special Video Features. See Taimane Gardner as the lead in the Women's Singles for another very rhythmic player
