@andrew I think I will go for Careless Whisper, but 89 measures is much in 4 weeks.. to say at least 🙂
Is it ok to play as far as i get till the end of the month? I’m at measure 8 now 🙂June 4, 2020 at 10:52 am #38321
Hi @stianukulele, I’m working on Careless Whisper too. The good news is that there’s a lot of repetition within those 89 bars and Andrew’s Simplified Outro makes it shorter too. I’m finding it helpful to split the song into its sections and practice those individually:
You really start to see where the repetitions are (Choruses, Verses, Riffs) and it makes it seem more achievable. Hope you have fun with it!June 4, 2020 at 10:55 am #38322
(But I agree that I would love more than just 4 weeks! haha)June 5, 2020 at 4:04 am #38339oldan_Participant
Ok… so I will attempt Stairway to Heaven. It’s way above my paygrade though, so will see how far I can get. Just the stretch 272 is mind boggling.
Hopefully it will be submittable, there is still time 🙂June 5, 2020 at 5:00 am #38340stianukuleleParticipant
Thanks for the tip!
I’m doing a mix of Andy and Evan, and even make my own little variations 😉
In the end of the month I think I will get there.June 5, 2020 at 6:13 am #38341lyndallkParticipant
@anibaf – I’m doing people are strange because I did a hard one for me last time – malagueña – and bodysurfing the month before which still need much work and practice. So I want to get back to that. I think it’s completely legit. I’ve never heard Andrew say :You’ve done the wrong song !!! As far as I know!June 5, 2020 at 8:23 am #38342rickeymikeParticipant
Too cool a song (people are strange) not to do it no matter what level it is!June 5, 2020 at 11:42 am #38345jkuleleParticipant
Working on Stairway to Heaven but having a tough time with the 272 stretch on a tenor. Is there an alternative option for this or will I just look into how to dislocate the little finger! 🙄June 5, 2020 at 12:09 pm #38346June 5, 2020 at 2:19 pm #38356June 6, 2020 at 3:38 am #38358flaaaaaameParticipant
Can I still get the entry if I do stairway to heaven with low G?June 6, 2020 at 8:26 am #38362lisamccParticipant
I’m going for careless whisper too… it’s a tricky little one!! I am literally doing it a bar at a time on the tab viewer and I’m taking it down to 25% and repeating a million times – I think it’s a good job that I’m in lockdown alone!!! Another awesome selection of songs again Andrew – I just want to play all of them! Good luck everyone! 🙂June 8, 2020 at 4:31 pm #38480June 12, 2020 at 11:49 am #38606rebecaParticipant
Hey uke community! That’s me again playing a low G arrengement with a high G uke! I hope there is no problem with that.
This arrengement is super cool! Personally it was challenging for me and harder than what I had expected. One of my weakness playing uke (one of many) is fingering with partial barre. I realize that I have a lot of work in reference to the posture as I experienced fatigue in my fingers while playing this one, especially in bars 23 to 26, not when I played them apart from the rest, but after playing the whole tune I experienced tireness and a loss of strength in my index finger making it dificult to proyect a clear sound. In fact this is the best of many tries.
Btw The tutorial was incredibly useful. You explain everything cristal clear, foresee possible difficulties while playing and also focus on the most efficient way to play.
