I imagine that Christmas songs are going to be featured in next month’s challenge. There’s a Christmas tune that I’ve been meaning to try for ages, so I might get a head start and hope that it’s one of the options for the challenge. There are a lot of Christmas songs on the site, though, so I wouldn’t be shocked if this isn’t one of the options.November 25, 2019 at 8:10 pm #33852kanae926Participant
Which one, Robin?
I was hoping Greensleeves would be made and it was, so I started to learn it. But then White Christmas also just got released and I love that one too! This Friday, I think Blue Christmas is coming out.
I love all the Christmas songs…I can’t decide!! 😂November 25, 2019 at 8:29 pm #33854
Actually, it’s Linus and Lucy. I love that song.
Andrew already said that Greensleeves would be an option for the challenge on Marama’s introductory post. That would be a good option too, but I’m looking to stretch myself a bit and Linus and Lucy has been on my shortlist for a while.November 25, 2019 at 8:57 pm #33857kanae926Participant
Wow. Yeah, that’s a great one…looks challenging for sure!November 25, 2019 at 9:03 pm #33858AndrewKeymaster
All 3 new ones 🙂
Will be a short challenge: Dec 1-23 b/c of giveaway on 24th.November 25, 2019 at 11:49 pm #33859
I have been looking at Linus and Lucy, and I had to laugh when you said “if these stretches are hard for you.” I’m still working on Moonlight sonata! Trust me, these stretches are not hard.November 27, 2019 at 9:51 pm #33911becky7777Participant
Looking forward to the new coarse in December. I’ll probably be working on that if it goes wild in Dec. (Can’t remember 100% but I think Andrew said it does.) and I’m continuing to figure out what I can of the St. Elsewhere Theme. (Eventually i’m going to need some help on that one.)
I really love the song Greensleeves though, so i’ll do that one most likely. I learned the uke underground version last Christmas, and need a high G to work more on Daniel Estrem’s ukulele arrangement,(and make it sound right. 😢) His is definitely really advanced but my absolute favorite i’ve ever heard on uke. Chock full of awesome techniques and time periods to practice in a song I love too.
Dan is worth checking out on youtube at least if you haven’t, he’s awesome! He just really doesn’t advertise himself on youtube like a lot of people do. Even if you only check out his ukulele pieces, he’s definitely awesome. (He plays lute and a variety of guitars too.)
BTW– At the time, Daniel Estrem, and John King were the first and only two classical guitar guys to publish all-ukulele records. (Fun fact 😁👍)
Sorry it got long again. Everyone knows I type novels.
