    Hi everyone! Here is my entry for this month with Aura Lee. I’m a premium member.
    I learned this in about a week and I decided to memorize it this weekend. So There might be a few pauses in there. I played it for my sister later and it sounded a lot better but anyway.

    Thank you for the lessons! I have started teaching a beginner ukulele lesson once a week in my town. They know some basic chords and we are working on that island strum, so it’s been fun. I haven’t shown them any finger style yet but I have thrown your guys name out there a couple times:)

    Hey everyone,
    here is my entry for july „Aura Lee“. This peace was not very difficult, but the fingerstyle was challenging not to touch the wrong string.

    If I win the Electric Ukulele, here is the first song I will play with it.
    A bit of hesitation near the end. I am nervous when I record myself.

    I thought I’d post an update for “Aura Lee” since I’m back from my Maui vacation and camping trip. I was able to work on it a little while away. It is a little bit better than my first video. Aloha and Mahalo for the awesome lessons on RC101!

    For such a simple song.. this was more difficult than I thought. I tried your strumming tech but I’ll have to work on that.

    Hi:

    Been so busy this month. Here I am, at almost the 11th hour, posting my submission of Aura Lee. Amazes me how difficult it is to play such a simple song when one has adult learner brain & arthritic hands. But, I did it! Thanks for the opportunity.

    Feel like a kid who waited until the last minute to do a school project. Hope it works this time!

    Aura Lee — by me.:)

    I’m gutted I couldn’t get 50s Rock & Blues ready in time but will keep practising in the hope of one day having an electric ukulele! Congrats to all those who persevered – it was a tricky month!
    Here’s my last minute switch to Aura Lee. I found it really difficult to keep in time and not race to the finish line on this one (and I need more time to try the funky strum flick thing!), but hopefully I’m (just) in time for an entry…

    I had to make a last minute switch to submit Aura Lee.

    I was gunning for Danger Zone this month but I couldn’t quite get it together in time for this month. I found it ok to play along by myself with the tablature but as soon as I played with the band, it was like another level and I couldn’t keep up. More time and practice needed for sure.

    As a side note, I’m wondering if it’s possible to have the Tab Play Along with only backing track sound (without ukulele performer) as an intermediate step so I get some visual help with the rhythm but without Evan playing. Do you think this will help me bridging across to completely rely on the backing track along?

    I’m with @nelsonlin2021! I don’t know whether it’s my speakers or my ears, but I struggle to hear the U-Bass so I haven’t got a clue how I fit in with it when suddenly it’s just me and the backing track. I too could do with a bridge of some sort!
