    @lbilkie, thank you kindly!! I eventually decided to pick this one:

    The Flight Centurion Gold Top Tenor Electric Uke.

    Not sure if that image will work. It was the last one listed on page one of this thread. A real beaut! πŸ˜‰

    Okay, not sure if my replies showed up. I’ll delete any duplicates later if I posted more than one. πŸ˜…

    Edit: Never mind, I got it! Much to everyone’s chagrin… πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

    @annemarie, thank you! I feel even more reassured in my choice now, even though I definitely was considering the other ones. Hahaha I am going to shred that thing like an extra sharp cheddar, man! Well, hopefully eventually I will. πŸ˜…


    @tessiert
    , hahaha, thank you! My excitement is real. I am just still so honored and humbled and overwhelmed to have won, because there are so many talented people on this site (even though I know it’s a random draw) but also I was having an extremely hard week and also could never afford to get an instrument like that. So, TMI as usual, but it’s just pretty special. πŸ˜‚


    @pysanky
    , thank you so much! It’s just a stunning instrument, I hope one day to really do it justice with my playing. 😁

    So excited for the next challenge as well! There are two songs that are especially intriguing. Thank you, @Andrew, for creating this site, such inspiring compositions and detailed lessons, and the opportunities to learn and share in this community! Also, the neat ‘n’ sweet prizes!

    Also, you’re the Bob Ross of ukulele.

    The End… πŸ˜…πŸ˜”

    Hello again!

    So, after some ado, I was finally able to throw together this little video. Still not sure if I am at all doing any of it right, but I’m figuring it out slowly. Hopefully better videos (of me playing, not talking, ugh) to come. Thank you again!

    I forgot to mention that the version of Drunken Sailor I play I think is a lesson Matt Dahlberg from the site taught, then played while on a boat. I may have imagined that. I may be delusional. Anyway, enjoy this incredibly awkward video (even though likely everyone else has moved on, lol).

    Oh yeah, and I messed up playing… a lot, but it still sounded cool. Bonus! πŸ˜€

    Also, correcting the video: Flight Centurion Tenor Electric Ukulele

    Haha! Great hearing that little diddy of a song electrified!
    What is the amp that you’re playing with?
