I too had a rough time with this one. In the end, I decided to focus more on keeping my timing consistent and slooow and working through any flubs. I really had a hard time fretting properly and getting any good sound out of the higher notes up the neck.
Good luck everyone!

I tried to have fun with this one but it never became mine. I had at least hoped to improve my triplet strum. Thanks for listening.June 30, 2020 at 9:58 pm #39253emilianoParticipant
Hi, here is my post for this month, wish I had more time to learn it haha since I was bored starting this month I decided to leanr how to do a handstand and injured my left hand so I only had 2 weeks for practice, also could not take up to 100% speed or all the song but this all I could get.
Great song, I enjoyed the groove so much!

A challenging assortment of songs this month! I remember when the beginner piece would be something like Aura Lee. Well, I guess with the prize quality so high, we’re expected to up our games!
Here is my still rough “People Are Strange”.

This is my attempt at StrangeJune 30, 2020 at 10:59 pm #39256jinajupiterParticipant
STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
Just in time I hope :).
I made it a bit longer again, added the part in C MAJ to the beginning and doubled the middle part. And played the entire solo. :).
Changed some notes here and there to my abilities and liking, hope that is ok.
Thanks it was funJune 30, 2020 at 11:18 pm #39257surfnrzParticipant
@jinajupiter sheer brilliance! That was absolutely fantastic! Wow! You truly blew me away!! I was singing along with you! Sooo good!!June 30, 2020 at 11:21 pm #39258andyroseParticipant
Despite working for a month on People Are Strange, I still can’t play it all the way through at a level I would want to share, so I won’t be posting a recording. But I’m OK with that – just proud that I was able to submit entries for the previous two months, my first attempts ever. So at least my name is in the hat!
What I’m writing to say is that only when I started to participate in the challenges did I really catch on to what a great resource we have in Rock Class 101. Getting the personalized feedback, tips, and answers to questions is (to borrow a word from Andrew) awesome! And that’s on top of all the great song arrangements with detailed lessons, courses, live-stream Q&As, and everything else RC101 has to offer. I think it’s an incredible value for uke players at every level. So this is my shout-out of thanks to Andrew, Matt, Stephen, Christopher, Evan, Tobias, Katie, AJ, and all the inspiring teachers and arrangers of RC101! You rock!June 30, 2020 at 11:58 pm #39259maryjanewParticipant

Seriously, my entry is HORRIBLE! I need much more time on this song, although I am enjoying it.
I love the swing beat. I thought I was doing ok learning the different parts but when it came to putting it all together, YUCK! The time pressure to record today by the deadline is also nerve-wracking!
Sorry, you don’t have to listen to this entry! LOL

I was so excited about this song but I’m so disappointed that this craptastic take where I completely blow it on the bridge was the best I could get out of myself tonight haha. But since this was the only take where my cat decided to sit behind my head, I’m going for it 🙂

Jina, you’re amazing! What a rock star. Thank you for entertaining us.
Mary Jane, you’ve worked hard. You’re almost there With putting it all together. You can be proud of your progress!
Kirpuff, that was a great take of a really hard song. I’m impressed. I’ll get to your level some day. Bonus points for the cat.
