    This is my third attempt at posting. I’m not sure why it’s not going through.

    Here’s my try. It’s rough, but it’ll have to do for now.

    I AM A PREMIUM MEMBER and I wish I had started learning this song earlier in the month. Still have some work to do, but here’s my go at Yesterday:

    This is really not good. So listen at your own risk. I practiced no where near as much as I should have, I let this month beat me.

    Thank you for your feedback Andrew, I am always a little bit too slow. I should work more with the Tab Player, that’s true!

    Andrew,

    Thank you so much for your constructive feedback. You advise that I pay more attention to highlighting the melody. Listening back to my piece, I certainly can see what you mean!

    I’ve gone back to blackbird and in trying to follow your advise, it’s better, but there is so much to concentrate on!

    Anyway, much appreciated you taking so much time to provide me and others such valuable feedback.

    Hello Andrew. I truly appreciate the feedback on Yesterday. It makes me want to really dig in and hone it, as well as my general playing. Thanks for the inspiration!!

 – Excellent performance! Great feel and timing throughout. Very well done this month 👏

    ukealori – great job, Lori! Trying looping the opening 4 bars with Matt in the tab player. Go slow and focus on getting the transitions down.


    @uku241
    – You’ve got a great singing voice! And very cool to see the fam join in 🙂

    dottiectrain – Amazing playing! How long have you been playing for?

    One thing I want you to take a look at is this lesson. It’s an overview on how to hold the ukulele. Read the article and watch the video at the bottom of the page. I want you to angle the neck up a little bit, because you’re currently holding it like a guitar. If you can point the neck up at a 45 degree angle, it should make playing easier 🙂

    jeg143 – Awesome performance! There’s a few pauses in some of the transitions, so that’s where I would focus my practice on. One way to work on this is to loop 4 bars at a time in the tab player.

    smudge – Beautiful playing! I’d say you’re at the stage where you can start to increase tempo to build speed 🙂

    mkstewart67 – Excellent performance! Really well done this month!!

    russellbarnett – Excellent job on the timing and tempo! Even I don’t think I can play it that fast lol. Ohh, and don’t forget to add the “I am a premium member” tag to your posts 🙂

    omaon4 – Excellent job! I dig the mix of staccato and sustained chord hits. Sounds really nice!

    puppylovesuke – I think our definition of messy is quite different lol. That was a fantastic performance, David! Keep up the great work 🙂

    ukukelley1 – Very well played and I like the subtle changes you through in. Couple little pauses in the timing, but nothing that a little more practice can’t resolve. Solid performance overall, great job this month!

    kmoore925x – I wanted to apologize. I checked our spam filter and saw that both of your previous posts got caught in it. Looks like the first one came in at 11:52pm, so no worries you’ll get an entry for this month.

    Onto your performance, it was excellent! Great tone and feel throughout. I’d say you’re at the stage where you can start to increase tempo to build speed 🙂

    jojoba – Great job, Juan! So with this song, you want to aim for more sustain in the notes and chords than staccato. Check out this lesson, it’ll help you work on increasing sustain.

    It also sounds like some of the bars are rhythmically tripping you up. Which is understandable as the song is extremely syncopated. Try playing along with Steven in the tab player. That should help clarify any confusion. Try 4 bars at a time.

    Also, don’t be afraid to sing the bars out-loud (not playing). That always helps me memorize syncopated lines.

    Unfortunately, you submitted past our deadline so I won’t be able to give you an entry for this month. I tried to give everyone a friendly reminder yesterday. But the good news is there are four more chances to enter for the prize.

    moonshine – Great job! Double check the rhythm in bar six. That first note should be a quarter note. Also, check out this video that I made earlier this month for another member. It’ll give you a tip with fretting that first chord in bar 4.

    BTW – Cool to see you do two songs this month 🙂

    alysun1 – Nice job! Sounds like you’ve got a great base established, just need a little bit more practice to smooth it out 🙂

    Unfortunately, you submitted past our deadline so I won’t be able to give you an entry for this month. I tried to give everyone a friendly reminder yesterday. But the good news is there are four more chances to enter for the prize.
