    I like the tone you get out of your uke, and the smoothness of your playing!

    Good evening everyone. I’ve been traveling back and forth across the country on business; practicing this piece. It’s about as good as it’s going to get before the end of the month. Recorded from the hotel room in San Francisco…..

    Hello everyone. Heres my attempt at playing In the Hall of the Mountain King:

    I know it’s not really good but that’s kind of the reason why I uploaded it. I would like to hear everything I did wrong and how I could do better.

    Last minute … here’s my entry for the challenge (Ode To Joy) – I wish I would have had more time to practice in May. 🙂

    Here is Fur Elise at half speed. I had hoped to get the tempo up and the mistakes down, but this is where I am at.

    OK….been playing for a month. I can’t keep doing retakes…just have to go with what I have. This has been great fun. Everyone has done so well!

    OK..well, the file was too big so here is a link to watch it.

    Andrew,
    I had trouble posting again due to file size, so I had to send my Ode to Joy entry to you via email.
    For me, getting a video posted seems to be as challenging as the ukulele playing…
    Thanks again for doing these challenges. The goal setting really helps getting to a better level of completeness with a piece.
    Thanks,
    Sheryl, aka ukukelley

    Hiiii – I hope I’m not too late !!!

    I have been a premium member since the beginning (2015?) when Andrew was doing amazing things with his Makala soprano (his best performances imho!). I have been playing off and on since and recently got back into it. Sadly, I didn’t get to practice this arrangement very much, so I hope it qualifies 🙂

    Just in time Maria 🙂 Great job, you’re almost there, melody C is the tricky one with that tune. BTW, did you see June’s Challenge and the song that is on there 😉
