Here’s my version of Crazy. Thanks for a fun arrangement Ashley. I was gonna try and add a harmony but that proved way outside of my video editing skills. And a little stark in the voice pitching area. So it’s just one of me and the uke.July 5, 2022 at 1:30 pm #52624July 5, 2022 at 6:32 pm #52627lyndallkParticipant
Aw, thanks Andrew!July 6, 2022 at 11:03 pm #52670maryjanewParticipant
I am a premium member-
But I don’t think we need to say that for this challenge, right?
I have NEVER recorded this early in the month! I just don’t have time to learn the harder songs.
I am getting ready to go on vacation to Elvis’ favorite place (or maybe 2nd fav?),nHAWAII!!!
So I thought I’d get a jump on the easy song, Aura Lee, AKA Love Me Tender.
I recorded at about 86 bpm while accompanying myself on my D-Ho Tiny Tenor (low G). I play the
Melody on a Slim Body Tenor with a High G. I may revisit this and re-record a better version if I have time in-between trips this month.
Aloha and Happy summer everyone!

Here is my Aura Lee / Love Me Tender
Goal for this month is to try to have both kids learn it as well for triple submission.

This isn’t an official entry, it’s a cry for help!
Andrew, I can’t tell you how much I like the 50s Rock and Blues lesson. The music is fantastic, your solo is amazing, and it gave me a reason to pull out my telecaster! However…I am having a terrible time playing along with the bass backing track. For some reason, I just can’t ‘hear’ the chord changes the same way I can with your solo or with a typical rhythm guitar. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!July 9, 2022 at 7:44 pm #52696
Hi Sara, it sounds like you are falling behind. I’m emailing you an mp3 with a click throughout. Try tapping your foot on beats 1 and 4 throughout. Also, double check the chords when backing the solo. Couple sound off. And TY for the kind words! I appreciate it 🙂July 9, 2022 at 8:02 pm #52698madz_about_ukeParticipant
First time joining RC101 challenge, here is my Crazy entry, I really love the beautiful and challenging chord progression. I had fun learning and playing this arrangement.

@Lindallk That was soooooo good. I showed my husband and he said, “wow she has charisma” ☺️ I loved it. Thanks.July 11, 2022 at 11:30 pm #52728July 12, 2022 at 8:32 am #52731malku2603Participant
Hiiiiii Guyssss 😁 , So excited to participate in this month’s challenge.
Aura Lee is such a soulful song, after a long busy day, it’s so calming and exciting to practice it. You know slowing down a little bit and finding your true self. Enjoying this month’s challenge.
Thanks a lot, Andrew and rock class 101 for such amazing tutorials.July 12, 2022 at 11:42 am #52732
@malku2603 – Beautifully played and very cool to see you do the “flick” strum technique. One tip for that technique, it sounds like the pluck of the melody note is delayed a bit behind the strum. Try to cut down on that gap by plucking immediately following the strum.
And TY for the kind words! I appreciate it 🙂
