I AM A PREMIUM MEMBER!
I realised that in order to enter I needed to submit the strum-melody arrangement so I’m slipping this one in at the last moment!

@AJ Thank you for your feedback. I have found some of the chord transitions difficult so I’ll keep working, and slow it down as you’ve suggested. Many thanks!April 1, 2021 at 9:03 am #46373turkgooseParticipant

Here’s everyone on page 7.
rockmyuke – Dennis, keep in mind that we are always our worst critic. I loved your interpretation. It was beautifully phrased and well played. Keep up the great work!
andrewvh – Great job, Andrew! It was cool to hear you throw in some of the concepts that Steven taught in the lesson, like vibrato.
I’d say, get it memorized so you can focus on how you want to splice in those concepts into the performance.
Catherine – Performance was great! Keep up the great work 🙂
celia21 – I like your use of rubato. Had a great natural feel, but be careful of having too much of a gap in between notes/phrases – which I head a couple times in the B Melody. Other than that it was great, keep up the good work!
eyka321 – Beautifully played! There were a couple spots you stumbled on, so just focus on cleaning those up in your practice. But otherwise, it was excellent!
timolnz – Performance sounds great, Tim! I would say that the notes sound a little bit punchy, which is indicative of plucking a little bit too strong/hard. But it’s hard to say if it’s you or just the audio recording being a bit hot.
Here’s a video you can check out that I made for another member in another challenge that talks about light verse soft attack:
goody2shoes – Sounds great, Joel! Well played 🙂
joe150 – This is one of the best takes I’ve heard from you, Joe! The melody sounds beautiful, but keep working on the ending of it. I’m really impressed with your performance this month, keep up the great work!
b_ukes_101 – Sounds great, Brandon! Focus your practice on cleaning up those little fluke areas and you’ll be rockin’ and rolling! Keep up the great work!
kirpuff – Beautifully played, Sara!
maryjanew – Sounds great, MJ! Keep working on the B Melody and I’d say, memorize it and then you can start to play around with some of the concepts that Steven taught in the lesson, like rubato or vibrato.April 1, 2021 at 12:05 pm #46378AndrewKeymaster
