Still in holidays, so I chose the easy way out. Recorded this in a beautiful gorge in Bavaria, Germany. Don’t love the last chord by the way, but I think you can hear that. LOLAugust 9, 2022 at 7:27 pm #53068August 11, 2022 at 3:56 pm #53110shmu88Participant
Here’s this month’s entry for me 🙂August 11, 2022 at 7:29 pm #53125August 12, 2022 at 9:09 am #53134marianneParticipant
As I had already learnt and submitted Moon Waltz and The Explorer previously, decided to take on Fingerpicking Etude No.5.
What a gorgeous melancholic little tune Andrew. As always, wonderful melodies!
Here’s to you from Lebanon:

@marianne – Beautiful performance! There’s a couple transitions I’d work on getting smoother timing wise, but it was excellent overall and the tone on that uke is absolutely lovely 🙂
And TY so much for the kind words Marianne!August 13, 2022 at 3:16 pm #53141marianneParticipant
Thanks @andrew! Haha yes you are right…! I should have given it another day before submitting but was too eager to do so. Had started learning it only 2 days ago 😂
Agreed the tone of that uke is gorgeous. I am finding it impossible to go back to the old one!August 14, 2022 at 8:08 am #53144katazumiriParticipant
Here is my attempt with “Fingerpicking Etude no. 5”.
Have a nice day!August 14, 2022 at 1:20 pm #53145pysankyParticipant
This is my entry for August. I’m getting ready for a trip so I wanted to get this submitted before I leave. I know it could use improvement on transitions and timing and some string buzz but I’ve run out of time to work on it!August 15, 2022 at 11:33 am #53156lalo_eerParticipant
First time posting here.

One take! I think this is a record. Still smoothing things out now that it is memorized. I like the Dust in the Wind vibe… maybe this should be a song suggestion.

@katazumiri – Beautifully played and the tone on your uke is lovely 🙂
@pysanky – It was a great take! Lovely playing 🙂
One suggestion, sometimes in the B Melody you pluck the G string strongly and it overshadows some of the melody/harmony. I’d suggest a lighter pluck like you did in the A Melody. That’ll yield a sweeter blend.
@gstriph – It def does have the DITW vibe 🙂
Performance was great! Only thing I’d say is keep working on the transitions in the B Melody. But overall is was excellent! Great job this month, Jerry.August 16, 2022 at 1:00 pm #53213brettboyParticipant
Hi Ukulele Friends 🙂

Here’s a video of me playing Fingerpicking Etude no. 5
PS. If you want to check out my “The Explorer” video it was posted on my channel March 12, 2022.August 16, 2022 at 3:42 pm #53219
@lalo_eer – Brilliant first post! Bravo, playing was excellent! My only suggestion is to try to clean up the strum hits in Theme 3. They’re a little tricky rhythmically as they are syncopated at the end (4 &a). Try playing along with me in the tab player to strengthen your timing in this section.
@brettboy – Beautiful takes, Brett! Love the deep tone on the bari 🙂August 16, 2022 at 7:33 pm #53220turkgooseParticipant
I chose The Explorer again, it’s such a great song! I think I did a little better than last time.
