    Here’s my shaky stab at Silent Night.

    I donated $40. Happy strumming to children and adults everywhere.

    Nice Lisa. I’m also going the strumming route. After my shaky start, I’ve progressed to bar 12.

    Hi Rickey,

    for what it’s worth, I too am struggling with the same song and the finger picking. I am finding it helpful to ignore the finger picking and just run through the chords. Then start adding in the finger picking as the chord changes become more comfortable.

    Of course you can say that approach is all bunk once I post a video of the results at the end of the month:)

    Hi Chip,

    Glad to hear from a fellow struggler. Once I took Andrew’s advice and used tablature set to full page and synthetic, It fell into place with those extra notes. I set it at 75% and it worked great for me understanding the extra notes between words of the song. I’ve got to push myself on this one because my deadline is Christmas Eve instead of the end of month.

    leahwoosley, that looks like the same model Pono as mine..How are yo liking it? I love sound of mine, but I think it needs a setup, because it feels “tight”…I get sore fingers much faster on the Pono than on my Kala

    LOL, Lisa
    Andrew wouldn’t be Andrew without a “good, but”. And that’s why we’re all here. Correct?

    Olphart – I love my Pono… I got it through the Ukulele Site, so they did the set up on it. It’s a ETC-PC model. It’s my nicest quality instrument, so i like it/play it the most, but I don’t have that large of a collection. 😉 What brand of Kala do you have?

    Here’s my redo. It was a pretty easy fix, assuming I got it right, which is still an assumption.
