    Hello everybody,

    this month I went with DRUNKEN SAILOR and it was so much fun to practice. As usual my recording doesn’t come close to how I thought I would play the song. Level 2 was out of my possibilities though I tried to learn it and practiced quite a bit. So I skipped this in my performance.
    Have a great time everybody.

    sorry, we’re traveling so we weren’t able to get the backing track.

    Hi all!

    I chose Misirlou this month. I started practicing the lead part and learning the tremolo picking (the mario party analogy from Matt helped me haha). I had in mind to submit the rhythm part if I can’t learn the tremolo picking and the song in one month. Together with exams, my practice time was short, so here is the rhythm part. To show my progress on the lead, I uploaded a progress video as well. The backing track and my playing is not in sync in some parts. I find the transition from the tremolo part to the thumb picking quite difficult.

    So here it is:

    Hello Uke friends-

    This month I chose to work on Under the Boardwalk, a perfect summer song, and I love Steve’s arrangement. It was a big stretch for me, and I need another month to get it closer to speed and with fewer stumbles and hesitations. But this is where it’s at now, slow and bumbling!

    I loved watching all your entries, great work, everyone! Thank you!

    Warmly,
    Jody

    Enjoyed learning Matt’s arrangement of Jimmy Buffet’s Maragaritaville. Any feedback on improvement is appreciated.

    @bibilele flawless I’d say! I’m so impressed with the Misirlou entries. You all need a mandolin too 😁

    Hi. First-time poster. Here’s my very beginner’s version of Drunken Sailor.

    edit: I became a premium member this month! Thanks for the great content.

    I would like it to be more polished, but ran out of practice time this month-was going for that Bruce Willis vibe…haha

    Please do not include me in the drawing this month….thanks!

    I can’t believe in 2 hrs it will already be August! Loved the submissions this month….some pretty awesome playing in our Uke World. I worked on Drunken Sailor. The second I heard Matt play this tune a month or so ago, I knew I wanted to learn it. I love the 3 different levels built into it. The first two came a little easier than the third….the third was a bear….. and I’m still struggling with it! Thanks RockClass101….this was a lot of fun….and even though I drove my family crazy (as usual)….they were all singing Drunken Sailor all month long!🤪. Oh, and thank-you @Bumblebard for the clawhammer tabs…..so cool!
