    @gi_gi_ – I gave her your email 🙂


    @artcrocker
    – That’s a beautiful looking and sounding uke! I dig the changes you added to your performance. Only thing I’d say is to try to keep it locked into tempo more.

    Imposter syndrome is at its max but I’m submitting Aura Lee this month
    (I had a lot of fun trying to learn the 50s rock and blues but I didn’t and won’t get to recording level with that)
    Aura Lee or Lea was one of the first pieces I learnt from Ukulele Mike / Michael Lynch not long after I first picked up the uke, so for his memory I played it in his style: downwards thumb strum throughout.

    This month I worked on Aura Lee. The other song choices are a lot of fun and after I become proficient with bar chords I plan on learning them as well. Slow and steady…

    Thanks for the fun!

    @biancak – Beautifully played 🙂


    @leslieb
    – Well done, Leslie! I have one tip to make your transitions more efficient. When you switch chords, for example going to F in bar 4, I noticed that your index finger goes down first then your middle finger. Try to place both down at the same time. Same thing goes for the G chord transition in bar 2, although you can make that one easier by omitting string 1 since that note is not needed (in other words, fret a G5: 023X).


    @jedart
    – Great singing and playing, Jed! This is a tough song to play with so many barre chords, the swung feel, and the fingerpicked sections. I thought you did excellent in all these areas! I would mainly focus your practicing on the transitions that you hesitated on. Loop these sections w/out the vocal then add it in.

    Last thing I want to mention, see if you can get the chromatic walk-up intro to have more of a triplet rhythm. Check out this lesson for help with that rhythm.

    Thank you for your guidance. I see what you mean and will incorporate the change as I practice. Hope to make progress with muscle memory!

    I tried relearning Stairway to Heaven this month. Needless to say, I only got through half. Summer has been busy and I have been nurturing some other outdoor hobbies, so I have fallen behind. I am posting what I learned along with my video from 2 years ago to show my growth. I played it this time on my Baritone. I leave for vacation Friday so this was the best I could do. Happy to see the improvement after 2 years though! Okay if it doesn’t count as a submission since it isn’t the whole arrangement 😀

    2 years ago….
