This is a little embarrassing. I actually wasn’t planning on posting yet, but once I get a song memorized I do a recording or two during practice, just to see where I am at. I liked how this one came out. I tried “mouth kazoo” for the first time (the embarrassing part) but it was fun and silly. Note to Andrew: please don’t use this one on social media. I don’t mind looking foolish in front of this lovely, supportive community but I prefer to keep it here.

That was great!!!June 7, 2019 at 5:30 pm #28115
Planet, that was awesome. Your timing was just right and it’s memorized in the 1st week! I’m saving your performance for me to study and practice. So you might get a thousand views before the month ends. Ha.June 7, 2019 at 5:48 pm #28116
I loved it, planet! I was expecting much goofier. That was actually very good indeed. ☺June 8, 2019 at 2:18 pm #28136
Thanks for the kind words. I hope my performance is a help to you, @rickeymike. Looking forward to hearing your take on it.June 8, 2019 at 2:50 pm #28138June 9, 2019 at 12:48 pm #28139
Thanks Andrew. I rewatched it and saw what I was doing in the triplets. I didn’t notice it before. I had been doing them correctly when learning it. I do them Matt’s way, DDU. I think when I got more comfortable with the piece overall I got sloppy. Something to watch out for.June 9, 2019 at 4:54 pm #28142
Time’s up. Uke down. New strategy this month. Instead of obsessing on perfecting a really difficult (for me) song – plus the recording of it – all month to the exclusion of all else, I took on a slightly more reasonable challenge and am posting now as is to allow time for lessons, review, practice, and playing just for fun. What a concept!
Totally blew the big finish on my extra credit attempt at a little (very little) creativity. So be it.

Just watched planetfink and lildevil. You are both great! I love the mouth kazoo and the extra credit!June 10, 2019 at 11:52 am #28148
lildevil – You are a great player. 🙂 I liked the transition into Aloha ‘Oe, it fit perfect and flowed well. No worries on the ending, you can target your practice to touch up that part, but truly fantastic overall. I really enjoyed watching your performance!June 11, 2019 at 4:07 am #28155
I have a question about Better Together. When Katie mutes the G string for the chorus, is that for ease (so you don’t have to fret a full E chord shape) or for aesthetic reasons (it sounds better)? Personally, I find it easier to slide the full E chord shape up and down the neck (including the G string) and I don’t think that negatively impacts the sound, so that is what I have been doing.June 11, 2019 at 6:55 am #28156
lildevil — that was fantastic!June 11, 2019 at 4:55 pm #28165June 11, 2019 at 8:23 pm #28167
