    I´ve worked harder on this than i care to admit 😛 I couldn´t get a recording as good as I wanted to, but after so many attempts that I´ve lost count, I just stick with this as the best one I´ve got. I know the tempo isn´t that great and it changes, i do not hit every note and so on, but I really enjoyed to learn and practise this song… to the point that I got to annoyed to try anymore today 😛 so this is what you get 😀

    Oh, I want to add, that I don´t want to participate in the giveaway this month, since I don´t have a Ukulele to use straps on. And I don´t think I would be a very good “strap player”, since I´m always sitting down playing. So I don´t want to take the chance of winning away from anyone else who actually would use one of these (very nice looking) straps 🙂

    Hi Andrew,
    I mostly use my thumb for picking, use my single index finger for accent picking. I tried to use a pick, but it seems cumbersome and loud. I don’t have a Jazz 3 pick. I might try one. I’m not sure if that’s good technique, but it felt most comfortable!
    Thanks again,
    Kelly Blackburn

    I have to say it took a good handful of takes to get a decent one. I also put so much effort into trying to get Brahm’s Lullaby down that Twinkle Twinkle little star got sloppy! But here it is 😊

    Oh, and sorry i cut off the last little bit!

    I was unable to participate in the last two contests so I’m really glad that I had enough time to record my entry this week.

    Hi Everyone,

    Here’s my entry for this month’s challenge. I’m playing Down by the Bay.

    Andrew, I’m still working on the grooving into the beat for last month’s challenge, Etude #11.

    Hi, Andrew,

    Thanks for your feedback on my performance. How can string noise be minimised? The strings on my uke are about 6 months old.

    Regards,

    Vida
