    Here’s everyone I hadn’t left feedback for yet 🙂

    —-

    annefgodfrey – I’m so glad you joined us this month, Anne. Your performance was gorgeous. I know Tom is smiling 🙂

    kelsey91 – Beautiful performances, Kelsey! And I love the vocal ending you came up with for the NYE tune. Well done this month, keep up the great work!

    And thank you so much for the donation!!

    P.S. You forgot to add the premium tag for your October entry, but I got you down for double entries for that month and this month 🙂

    cstiber – I sent it to AJ, Cody. He’s gonna love it because it was a great performance! You played it well and your dedication month after month to improve is inspiring to me and our community 🙂

    Thank you so much for the donation!

    cimarronsailor – Lovely performance and the uke sounded fine to me. No worries on the ending, I sang the last 2 chords out-loud lol 🙂

    beauke – Beautiful playing, Bea! I think with a little bit more practice you’ll have it where you want it to be. But it already sounds lovely. Keep up the great work!

    isabelm – Fantastic performance, Isabel! Watch out for that chord change at 55 seconds (first chord of the bridge). Sounds like you were a half step down. Other than that it was flawless. Great job this month!

    sarrafina – Bravo, your playing has such a great feel! And I love the arpeggiated strum technique that you use.

    So a tip on pacing and timing: Your best friend is the metronome. Try playing along with it or the on-screen tab viewer in synthetic mode with the metronome activated. Either option is a great way to work on those two areas.

    Keep playing, you have a lot of talent!

    treble_rebel – Wonderfully played and love the outro you came up with 🙂

    santai – Fantastic performance and thank you for the kind words, Marvin 🙂

    kirpuff – Beautiful playing as always, Sara! Thank you so much for your generous donation 🙂

    mkstewart67 – Playing sounds great, Melissa! And I love the fireplace backdrop. Just a little more practice and you’ll get it smoothed out. You’re almost there! Great job this month 🙂

    puppylovesuke – Great job on the intro! It has a great feel. Melodies sound are well played too! Just a couple pauses to work out as you keep practicing. But it was awesome overall! Great work this month 🙂


    @uku241
    – So sorry to hear you had trouble with Soundcloud. Great job on the tune! Unfortunately, you submitted past our deadline so we won’t be able to give you an entry for the prize for this month. I tried to give everyone a friendly reminder last night. I’m sorry!

    Didn’t have as much time to work on this as I wanted – December is always crazy – but this is the best out of 30 takes. Finally got it up on YouTube after having tried with the soundcloud interim upload above – I hope it wills till count in that Christmas spirit;)

    Hi @annegodfrey, you did a great job! There is nothing to be embarrassed about, and it is a great way to remember Tom.

    Thanks for the feedback I can’t wait to get better at it because it seems like a smooth song to play.
    Sorry about the horrendous video quality,your poor ears: noncompressed version

    Btw, your J 5 “I want you back” lesson was amazing. Looked simple but because of the syncopation it took me longer to learn than “dance macabre” on the sopranissimo. Just missed the November challenge but at least I have a whole new technique. Thank you!!!

    Happy everything to everyone!

    @andrew thank you! ✌🏻 And I actually read these guidelines a long time ago and forgot that you can just write premium member and you get two entries and you don’t actually have to learn two songs 😄 but I wanted to learn both anyway cause it was hard to decide , anyway merry Christmas Eve!!

    @Andrew haha! I’m furious. 🙂
    Thank you for the kind words. I want to go through more of the coursework and just focus on that now. It’s insanely helpful. Thank you for the opportunity as always and I’ll be in the forums more when the holidays slow down. I’ll do my best to catch you on the live stream while I’m driving the fam around.
    Happy Holidays everybody and good job!

    @Andrew thank you for your feedback!
    I will have a look at my third bar and I will try to play through my mistakes next time. I always felt like I have to correct my mistakes ;).

    WE DID IT! WE RAISED $2,885 for The Ukulele Kids Club. The money we raised will donate 57 ukuleles to hospital based children who will be paired up with music therapists that TEACH THEM how to play!

    Thanks to everyone who participated and donated in our December Challenge.

    Together, WE GAVE the gift of music to children in need.
