Ukuele.

As an early birthday present request, Jeremy asked for a ukulele. He wanted an instrument that would allow him to sing to Edda while she fell asleep (although she is often asleep when Jeremy gets around to playing). The ukulele is also known as the simplest instrument to learn to play according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Right now, Jeremy's playing Bad, Bad Leroy Brown. Earlier, he was playing Beatles songs and I've Been Working on the Railroad. Learning from internet and youtube videos.

When Jeremy's interest in the ukulele was just starting to take hold, we found the following youtube video of a 5-year-old kiddo playing the ukulele and singing (in Japanese/English) I'm Yours and I thought that if a 5 year old can do it, certainly Jeremy could do it no problem. But, of course, this kid is simply amazing and it will take a long time to learn to play like him.
