    GROUND RULES FOR PARTICIPATION:

    1. Post your Youtube, Vimeo, or Soundcloud links of you playing fingerpicking etude 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 anytime between Wednesday, March 1st till Friday, March 31st, 11:59pm EST.

    2. Submit individually, as a reply, IN THIS POST.

    3. Feel free to submit more than one video for the challenge.

    4. Have fun and don’t be intimidated by this challenge!!! Use this challenge to help you set goals and complete them by a deadline. You can also use this as an opportunity to chat with your fellow Rock Class 101 members and share tips or tricks on this challenge that you think are useful.

    5. In my opinion, it is better to show progress versus perfection with these challenges. So if you are a beginner and can only play the first couple of measures. That is completely ok. If you play two more measures of the next challenge piece than you did the previous one, you are on track to getting better. This is what these challenges are about…you learning ukulele and getting better. Remember we are all here to support you no matter what your current playing level is.
