I've been tracking some well-respected ukulele players on Youtube, but those people don't need backing tracks. Same with all the other instruments, so I think that's different.
Well, the both of them can hold out a decent groove and can throw in a few simple improvisations of their own. They're no Buddy Rich or Virgil Donati or anyone similar, so... I think that's... kind of OK.
Popularity wise, their sub count isn't as high as Pewdiepie's (I'm sorry; I just have to mention this guy because of his sub count, I know most of the people that do know him on here hate him) or all those gamers, but I think a 400k subscriber count is pretty good.
