Hi Matt and Drew, I’ve been learning “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher” for the challenge and I noticed there’s a discrepancy between the printable tabs and the play along tabs. To make matters even more confusing when Matt demoes the song it matches the play along tabs, but when he teaches it, it’s based off of the printable tabs.
It’s not a huge difference- in bars 3 and 25 a quarter note is turned into an 8th and an additional 8th note is inserted. Bar 26 has the opposite. I learned from the printed tabs and am now practicing my rhythm with the play along when I spotted the differences.
So I was wondering which is the definitive version? 🙂

@tsetsova – I always update the tab player to reflect the performance version. Sometimes this differs from the lesson version, which you noticed. We try our best to play exactly as taught, but sometimes when you’re in the moment a note here or there changes 😉 Either one should work, I’d say pick the version you like the most.November 20, 2020 at 1:33 pm #42042November 20, 2020 at 2:14 pm #42045November 20, 2020 at 4:36 pm #42046emilianoParticipant
@Andrew thank you for the comment, I was wondering a little thing about harmonics, on the last bar of toss a coin to your witcher you do an harmonic on the 7th fret in 3 strings, if I try to do it with my most comfortable finger that is the index one the sound is not reliable at all I will say like 80% of the time it sounds really low and dim, same goes with the middle finger, the only finger that can make those harmonics sound “okay” is my ring finger but that feels super weird.
¿Any ideas how to work harmonics with my other 2 fingers?
Also I notice on my friend ukelele harmonics are way easier to make, like I can make it with any finger hahaha, so maybe is cause my uke is not that nice for making harmonics…November 20, 2020 at 6:39 pm #42050November 20, 2020 at 7:43 pm #42051November 20, 2020 at 8:13 pm #42052ukuleleeParticipant
Thank you Andrew for the feedback, it is very useful. I will work on my index finger in Melodic Etude, and try to memorize pieces. I’d say memorizing has become VERY difficult in the last few years. Definitely worth improving, especially for performing. CheersNovember 21, 2020 at 1:50 am #42054alisonilesParticipant

Hello Rock Class,
I’ve been playing the ukulele for about 2 months and I love it. True story – I was inspired to pick up the ukulele after hearing a friend play “Puff the magic dragon” on a wild river trip, so when I saw this challenge I had to enter. This arrangement is beautiful and I hope to play it smoothly one day. I’ve really enjoyed watching the other entries.

2 months!!!!! I’m so jealous! I couldn’t even maintain a basic strum after 2 months.November 21, 2020 at 12:41 pm #42058
@alisoniles – Wow, I’m with Robin – very impressive! Well played and your right & left hand form looks great! Keep up the good work 🙂November 21, 2020 at 6:27 pm #42059marianneParticipant

Here’s my entry – I did Toss a Coin to Your Witcher to really push myself. I’m at about 3 and a half months now. I learned a lot from this song – about harmonics, about campanella… This was such an awesome arrangement – it was really satisfying to learn. But it was so hard to record! I kept forgetting the song in randomest places 🙂 I’m glad I got a cleanish take!
