Dylan Cover #155 Jason Arimoto "Simple Twist of Fate"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Jason Arimoto and is a live cover of "Simple Twist of Fate"
Thoughts on Dylan's Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this song:
Well the classics just keep coming in this series, with "Simple Twist of Fate" what a gem of a song.  Impeccable lyrics gorgeous phrasing, just a great great song that is hard not to enjoy.

Thoughts on Cover Artist: 
First I am hearing about Jason Arimoto, but it looks like he is an accomplished Ukulele musician an string developer.
Thoughts on Cover:
This is why I love continuing this series even 155 covers deep. I am able to find amazing musicians/artists/performers interpreting Dylan's music in their own way and it literally brings joy. I was blown away by this cover, fantastic work from Mr. Arimoto as Jason strums a guitar, plucks the Uk' and sings majestically. Really top notch and worth listening to...repeatedly. Excellent cover Jason.
