Hi Shankar, glad you dig the tune 🙂 That song will work with low G, so no need to swap it out unless you prefer the sound of the high G.April 2, 2019 at 12:40 pm #26181marni11Participant
Hi, glad its working now! Goodluck with the challenge! 🙂April 2, 2019 at 3:53 pm #26182laurasilParticipant
I tried implementing strum variations, still feel like I need to work on it, though. Anyway, here is my submission 🙂

It begins! My very first picking song. “Dream A Little Dream of Me”.
Video is too large to appear on this post. I play too slow.April 2, 2019 at 11:07 pm #26193
Just started on Dream A Little Dream. I have a busy April and there’s only a VERY slim chance I could finish Thousand Years, the other song choices eventually had something I don’t think I could do at all yet. Big difficulty jump is an understatement lol. Turns out Dream has a challenge too for low G…
Trying to find a solution to the melody note on the E7 backwards strum thing in Bar 4 that falls on the low G because yes, it sounds really “off” to me too.
Bar 5 is all open so it’s easy to sub in a high g note.
I kind of hit the breaks at 4, but it doesn’t look like there will be a lot of really weird sounding spots that are like bar 4. If I figure something out I’ll post.April 2, 2019 at 11:10 pm #26194robinboydParticipant
Try plucking the middle two strings fretting 2 on the C string and 4 on the E string.April 2, 2019 at 11:23 pm #26195
Whoops, Shankar! Yea I was def wrong. It doesn’t really work for low G. I’d recommend High G. Sorry, I must have been thinking of a diff tune that’s more interchangeable.April 3, 2019 at 12:19 am #26197alex2531255Participant
@Andrew, thank you so much for pointing out the area which I can improve!
This is the new recording of “Dream a little dream of me.”
You’re awesome!April 3, 2019 at 12:42 am #26198
Dang that was fast! I dig it, Alex. That feel sounds good 🙂April 3, 2019 at 1:02 am #26199brennaParticipant

I love this challenge because I love Dream a little dream of me. What a incredible melody.. The arrangement is elegant and “open”, so I have adapted it to my “rogue” way to play. The result is a little bit less elegant but I hope it’s fun…April 3, 2019 at 1:52 am #26200
I did find a solution to keep it pretty sounding and simple on low G. (Robin was faster! LOL)
I couldn’t keep the backwards strum, I tried. It’s REALLY hard to add that note and keep it sounding like a strum by plucking or for-real strumming, or a combination. (I couldn’t do it anyway)
Yeah Robin nailed it. His sounds better then just the melody note, but either one works and keeps the song really pretty sounding in low G. (If anyone’s determined.)
I came up with just the melody note on the E string on fret 4, and it still sounds really nice.
Bar 5 is just, E string third fret instead of open on the G string.April 3, 2019 at 2:04 am #26201
Congrats to everyone who did entries already!!April 3, 2019 at 6:14 am #26206rickeymikeParticipant
LauraK – nicely accomplished. Congrats
Brenna – I dig it!April 3, 2019 at 7:39 am #26208lakeside339Participant
Brenna – great!
This will be my first full fingerpicking tune and I still struggle with barre chords, so this will indeed be a challenge! But I am determined to submit entries each of the three months – a higher quality uke would definitely make barre chords easier!! (and this Kanile’a is a beauty)
