    Thanks so much for your feedback Andrew. I heard those unwanted extra notes but couldn’t really figure out what to do about it. This is so helpful and gives me great direction in what to do. Thank you!

    Hi, I chose Etude in E Minor and I fell in love with this piece. I couldn’t wait to record it so I ended up recording it in the car while waiting for my daughter. 😀

    Hey all, I’ve attempted 100% speed but get a bit finger tied in the middle…i can do it without mistakes but never with a camera on.. I forget to breathe!! Thanks for the lovely music.. It’s fun to play!

    @lisamcc – Great playing, Lisa! So one tip, try tapping along and/or counting with the count-in. That’ll help you lock in those pick up notes in time. Also, I want you to slow the tempo down and work on the picado technique. It’s hard at first, but when you get it down, it makes playing much more efficient 🙂

    Wow this month’s challenge is NOT easy 😮
    I tried James Bond’s theme, even though it is too hard for my level. Here is the best of my [way too many] attempts. I have a Soprano uke that only goes up to the 15 fret so the horns (variation) and the outro sections aren’t great obviously…sorry about that! I guess I need a new uke…if only there was a prize to win for Christmas …wink wink 😉

    Enjoy guys 🙂

    Thanks Andrew.. It was only when I watched my recording when I saw my haphazard finger usage! I coukd play it better at 75% but was determined to get the speed up. I’ll take it back again. Thanks
