    Hi, Andrew,

    Here is my entry for this month’s challenge. It is Waltz in C – but is actually in G because I am playing a baritone ukulele.

    As usual, I am only entering for fun, not to win anything.
    I am also working on Allegro, but it will not be ready for posting by the end of the month.

    Regards,

    Vida Fenton

    I had a tough time doing this because I’m a very beginner. Messed up a few times and can’t afford a premium membership right now so I had to learn the 2nd half of the song just by watching the beginning of the tutorial, so I might’ve missed some notes or two. But I definitely had fun trying and will most definitely work on getting it better. 🙂

    Here is my allegro ^^ It took me only 50 times to record it xD

    My attempt at allegro. Hard to keep it to 120, as it seems easier to go too fast! Also difficult to get wide range of dynamics with a uke, I am finding, but working on it.

    Suzie, you put all that together without access to the second half of the lesson or the tab viewer?! That is amazing! Brava!

    Am I alone in finding it hard to memorize the pieces? (@_@)

    I’m impressed with all the submissions!

    Love seeing so many performances come in 🙂 Here is my feedback.

    Kevin, I have attached a video below with feedback for you. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Vida, I have also attached a video below with feedback for you. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Suzie, amazing job figuring that out on your own, bravo! The video I left for Vida above will give you a few great ideas about the feel of the piece, which I think you did well on overall. But, try the advice from that video and try to keep it consistent as you apply it to the A and B melody.

    The other thing I wanted to point out, was that I noticed you doing a partial barre on strings 1 and 2 in the A melody (bars 1 – 4). I’d encourage you to stay on the fingertip of the index finger, playing only the first string throughout that section. In my opinion, it’s a better approach.

    trmzbg, awesome performance! Great picking form and overall feel. And don’t sweat it, sometimes it takes me 50 takes too 🙂

    Sue, great job on this one! The only thing that I would work on is taping a little harder for the percussive hits, as they sounded a bit too quiet. Also, how are you recording? It sounds like there is a weird effect on your uke…

    Well , playing guitar for 1 – 2 years defnetly paid off for finger picking ukulele ^^
