Here’s everyone on page 8.
sarahd – Beautifully played! Keep up the good work 🙂
@jbmills07 – Nice job on this tune too! Try to lighten up your picking attack to get a softer, sweeter tone.
karenj – Great job, Karen! Watch out for the timing in the bar before the B melody. It starts out with two quarter notes. Other than that, keep working on the B Melody. Overall, you played it really well 🙂
mac1984 – That was really well played and I thought you did a great job with expressing feel in your playing. Only suggestion is to get that B Melody memorized so you can put your full concentration in performing that section.
robinboyd – You aced the feel and flow of the piece. Well done, Robin!
mademoiselleannette – Beautiful performance! My only suggestion is to play it a little bit slower. But that’s a preference more so than a suggestion lol.
kirpuff – Beautifully played, Sara! Just target those notes that you want to touch up. But it was fantastic overall!
sarrafina – Here’s my feedback for you and the lesson I referenced 🙂
uku241 – LOL @ the intro! Playing sounded great and your adaption for that chord works. Only thing I’d say is to target your practice to the opening bars of the B melody. Keep up the great work!
maryjanew – Good job, MJ! I think you have a good base established, just needs more practice time. You were so close, but unfortunately you missed the deadline by 1 minute 🙁April 1, 2022 at 4:09 pm #51367CatherineParticipant
Thank you very much, Andrew, for your feedback! Will work on improving my timing.

@andrew thanks for your suggestions on part 1. I was trying to make sure I did not rush the beginning as I feel that part is one where best kept slow. I watched my video and do think in my attempt to have a slow sweet sound, I sacrificed the timing. I’ll try to correct that timing issue. Your comments are always so on point and helpful. Thank youApril 2, 2022 at 10:20 am #51375yukaleleParticipant
I can’t thank you enough for this feedback. I have spent the morning going through your lesson and videos.
I seem to have acquired quite a few bad habits, but by concentrating of the correct positioning of the Uke and my hands, I can already feel an improvement, but it’s hard work breaking the old habits.
Now, when I look at you and your team playing I actually can see what you are talking about and where I’m going wrong. Never thought about it before…
Thank you for your individual attention. Awesome.April 2, 2022 at 2:49 pm #51376lynnzoParticipant
Wow! Thanks for the compliment Andrew and as always thank you for the advice.April 4, 2022 at 10:06 pm #51384kpurdyParticipant
@andrew thank you for the feedback! This makes total sense to use the tab player and break it into sections to learn before picking up the tempo. I’ll give that a try!April 5, 2022 at 2:08 pm #51391
My pleasure! Thanks y’all 🙂
