    I am a premium member. I chose Song of Storms. Still need to get the first barre chord to ring a clearer. It is a bit twangy. LOL.

    Got little issues in private life this month and had only 5 evenings to practise Zelda’s Lullaby… Full of errors and hadn’t time to practise some harmonics in there what i wanted to… Anyways here is this version :

    Here’s everyone on page 9.


    @gisele
    – Excellent playing and timing! You had a very creative work around for the barre chord, but I’d encourage you to work on barring. It’s a very useful skill to develop.


    @erin99
    – Great playing throughout! I like the adaptation you made for those two bars, but it does introduce an extra note as you slide up. So from a rhythmic perspective, it’s a little confusing.

    The stretches that Matt plays are definitely tough, check out this lesson for help with increasing left hand reach.


    @richard_siegert
    – Beautiful playing and your form looks great too! Sounds like a little bit more practice will smooth out the second and third Melody.

    Double check the last bar, that first harmonic should be the 2nd fret on A. Overall, you did a great job! Keep up the good work 🙂


    @richo_uke
    – My pleasure on the previous feedback! You did a great job this month too. I will say that the second time through was a better take. You held the notes out through their entire duration on the second take. That didn’t happen a couple time on the first go-around.

    So I just want to point it out as something to be aware of. And that’s why I love recording and listening back. It helps us catch the little things and know where to target our practice.


    @biancak
    – Beautifully played 🙂


    @karenj
    – Beautiful playing 🙂


    @ukulelee
    – Your playing sounds beautiful. I would do exactly as you said, focus mainly on increasing tempo from here. Keep up the great work and thank you for the kind words Leone!


    @joannetala
    – If that’s speed learned, I’m impressed! Great playing!

    I think I bit off a bit more than I could chew with this one. It’s nowhere near where I was hoping it’d be, but oh well. It was a lot of fun to learn, with so many new elements I hadn’t really tried before (big stretches, barre chords, a lot of movement all over the neck, strumming only a subset of strings).

    I think I’ve gotten better at holding the uke (thanks Andrew for the videos last time!), it didn’t feel like it was falling, even when I was standing, and even with all the left hand movement. Hope I can continue to get away with not having to use a strap. 😝

    Okay, NOT my best, but I did memorize this time. The osteoarthritis makes electric shocks in my fingers (and spine) but hey, it is the uke that counts here! I could not get a bar-cord due to swelling. Nonetheless, I made it work! A buzzing string and a few timing issues, but I LOVE the song! Thank you. (I can still play Blackbird, and better than before) The bar-cords hurt if I’m in a flair up. Love the challenges, and it’s really been a big help in my intermediate level play : )

    I missed a couple of challenge months because I dropped my Ukulele and it broke 🙁

    A little out of practice so I went with an easy choice………and it was fun to do with piano!

    This month I did Luigi’s Mansion Theme. The most challenging part was the 16th notes and it was fun to learn.
