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.July 25, 2022 at 7:18 pm #52861lesliebParticipant

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!July 25, 2022 at 8:24 pm #52862July 25, 2022 at 10:32 pm #52863jedartParticipant
My first post disappeared, this is my attempt at “Crazy”, this piece kicked my but, but I’m still trying it…

@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.July 26, 2022 at 3:44 pm #52865lesliebParticipant
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!July 26, 2022 at 3:52 pm #52866varajasParticipant

Salutations Fellow Uke Lovers! I took on 50s Rock & Blues. Super lesson. Thanks Andrew and Stephen! Here’s my best take:July 26, 2022 at 9:47 pm #52869debb1985Participant

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….
