Wow, great job guys! Love seeing these videos come in! Btw, Lisa feel free to email me your next video and I can upload it to my YouTube Channel. This way we can get a higher quality recording 🙂
I’m gonna post a video tomorrow with a few tips for you guys: Erick (ukeninja), HonuHonu (Francis), Lisa and Carmelo. Again, awesome playing. Love it!May 8, 2017 at 6:57 pm #11417
Hey guys, here is a quick video with some feedback. Hope it helps, let me know if you have any questions 🙂 Again, awesome job everyone!May 8, 2017 at 9:05 pm #11418lisadmhParticipant
Thank you for the encouragement and guidance Andrew! I’m honoured to have made it into your video. What a great place you have here.May 9, 2017 at 9:46 am #11421honuhonuParticipant
Andrew, thanks again for reviewing our videos.
Very good insight, this care and attention sets you aside from the other learning sites.
I can honestly say (from my experience) this is actually as good if not better than most
private lessons I’ve had.

Thanks guys 🙂May 12, 2017 at 4:38 pm #11462twizzlerParticipant
Alright, here is my entry.May 12, 2017 at 5:49 pm #11465relaxingukeParticipant
Ok, here’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King”. Or, as I more fondly remember it, part of the opening theme song for the old adventures of sonic the hedgehog cartoon. Enjoy!
P.S. Please excuse the subtle sounds of my metronome in the background haha

I’m working on In the Hall of the Mountain King, (The Pier Gynt Suite was the first classical music I enjoyed, waaayy back in my teen years,around 1957 I think).
Anyway, I was working with my tenor uke, but have switched over to a baritone, using the same fingering, so the actual chords are different. I play the g note from bar 5 and 7 as a d, plucked on fret 3 of the b string. That is the only real change I’ve made in the arrangement. To me it sounds right, though I admit that I’m a newby too with just under 3 months of Ukulele fever. (got into it by accident)
My question is, is this ok within the rules of the challenge?May 13, 2017 at 2:31 pm #11499
Totally fine olphart! I’m looking forward to watching your performance! And awesome jobs Twizzler and relaxinguke. Very well played and I love that you used a metronome 🙂May 13, 2017 at 8:25 pm #11510cindywanggParticipant
Not perfect and hopefully it will sound better by the end of this month. But here it is! Also, I couldn’t play the last 2 melodies at the same tempo as the other melodies, so I did slow it down. (btw, I edited the recording a little when my rhythm was off)May 14, 2017 at 11:44 am #11513
Cindy, that was superb! Great playing 🙂May 14, 2017 at 12:31 pm #11514mkprussParticipant
Awesome job on Canon in D, Carmelo! I got about half of that one, but the harder parts seem a bit too challenging at the moment. I’m hoping to post Ode to Joy later today. Really good job on this one Carmelo! You inspired me to start working on it again.
Wow. Just listened to Cindy play it and got more inspiration! Terrific job!May 14, 2017 at 1:32 pm #11517mkprussParticipant
Here’s my entry…
Ode To JoyMay 14, 2017 at 2:13 pm #11520cindywanggParticipant
Thank you Andrew and Mkpruss. Your Ode to Joy sounds great 🙂 I hope you continue to work on Canon in D, it was quite challenging at first but you can definitely do it!May 14, 2017 at 3:04 pm #11521carmeloukesParticipant
Thanks for the compliment Andrew, Cindy, and Marissa
Cindy and Marissa, you did great as well!!!
