    Sliced my thumb open on Dec 2nd but luckily it healed up just in time to get this learned 😀

    Super fun arrangement, thank you Steven and Andrew! I have also made a donation to the Ukulele Kids Club 🙂

    Hi everyone! Here’s my submission to December’s Member Challenge. I decided to play Aura Lee. It was a bit difficult but I know that I will get better with practice. Thank you!

    @lv2playukulele – Very nicely played, Yvette! This song involves chords where you don’t strum all four strings; instead, you stop short of strumming all of them. For example, this happens in bar 1 and 2. Take a look at the F and G5 chords:

    null

    For these 2 chords, we want to strum from string 4 to 2. And the reason we stop on string 2 is because the melody note falls on that string.

    The only other suggestion I have is to practice playing along with me in the tab player. Try looping 4 bars at a time with a focus on keeping timing/tempo steady throughout. Overall, I thought you did awesome for your first performance video! Hope you join us again for another challenge 🙂


    @kirpuff
    – That was awesome take Sara! I don’t think that cut held you back at all! You rocked it 😊

    And TY so much for your donation. Please send me an email with the amount so I can update our tally.


    @krystalwilbert
    – Very nicely played, Krystal! My only suggestion would be to memorize the piece so that you can focus 100% on playing it. I think that would eliminate some of the little hesitations that we hear, for example in the phrase from 42 to 48 seconds. Overall, it was an awesome first post and I hope you join us again for another challenge 🙂

    While we came a little short of hitting our participation goal this month, I went ahead and made our full donation of $500 to The UKC tonight 🙂

    Together, we have now raised $2,265 for the charity! AMAZING!

    Thank you to each and everyone of you who has donated. Your generosity truly makes a difference in the lives of the children.

    If you’d like to donate, it’s not too late. I will be updating our tally until December 31st. Please send me an email with your donation amount so that I can keep our tally up-to-date 🙂

    I want to Thank Rock Class 101 for all they do for us, also I am grateful to everyone who participated in the monthly challenges. Uku Rebulic is a great store to visit, Mike and Donna are wonderful people. Drew and Stephen care about the Rock Class 101 . I was lucky enough to walk into UKU Republic one day when they were doing a video for Rock Class 101. They stopped the video and took a lot of time to visit and jam with me. Thanks for all the congrats for winning the December challenge.

    Hi Rockclass

    Merry Christmas!

    It was very challenging, especially the triplets, but great fun to learn this Christmas tune.
    Here is my version for the Dec challenge.
