    Wow @lyndallk – that was great 🙂 I need to switch one of my ukes to low G so I can have a go at Helen’s Theme too.
    I can’t believe you made that uke, it sounds excellent! You must be so pleased 🙂

    This month has been crazy, some good (bought a house by the beach) some bad (sick dog) so not much time to play ukulele, but this marks the end of my first year on the this site and I have come so far. The fact that I can record an OK version without attempting to record it 100 times shows progress. I know it is sloppy, but I hope I got the emotion of the song. That is what I was going for.

    My first post here in Rockclass101, so, hello everyone. Also, my first you tube video ever.

    As to the sound of silence, there’s definitely romm for improvement I hope I can show some when I have my second try.

    Andrew, congrats on your first post. Nice playing.

    Planet, Congrats on your 1st year anniversary. You have become a Finkenstein Monster of the uke!

    Andrew, welcome. I look forward to your one year anniversary submission next year!

    Rickey, I love it. I think I will get it on a t shirt

    Attempting to record today as long as nothing else goes wrong. (Fingers are crossed.)

    Everyone’s done a fantastic job on their songs! (Loving the costumes too! You all have mine beat!)

    @lyndallk – Your ukulele sounds awesome! I think the low G suits it.

    Lyndal, you’re too harsh on yourself. I thought it was great and by taking Drew’s advice by just moving on, you certainly hid the mistakes from this listener. BTW, what is that “ring” on the neck?

    Thanks @ripley I’m really pleased with the uke. It was quite a journey. I posted a little more detail about it on the showcase your playing if you want to see all the gorgeousness!! 🙂

    Robin I swapped it to a low G and I think that’s the right thing to do with that uke! I now have another uke that is a high G (a tenor but I sort of wish I’d bought a concert) as I broke my other one (by sitting on it – eek!)

    Good points Ricky – yes moving on is good. Although I’ve been known to start again a few times when performing and frankly if its ok for Patti Smith (when Bob Dylan won the Nobel prize) then its ok for me!

    I have my mother’s wedding ring around my neck, Ricky – and a star of David that was given to her when she was 14. It’s 90 years old!!!

    I originally planned on wearing a mask for the video to be more thematic, but it made playing about twice as hard and after about 30 attempts I ended up taking it off. I really enjoyed learning this song – I think this the first time I’ve been able to play through a piece without sheet music. I also opted to use my thumb for picking/strumming in most of the song because I liked the way it sounded, but it’d be a good challenge to come back and learn the song and play strictly with 4 or 3 fingers.

    Hi, so here is my try at Sound of Silence:

    Still struggling with those chord changes …

    This is my first challenge upload here. Sound of Silence – Sorry, it’s a little bit hairy. I started trying fingerpicking songs a couple of weeks ago. Before that I pretty much only had a repertoire of C, F, G7 chord songs. I’m excited to learn new ukulele skills. 🙂

    Thought I’d have a go at Sleep Walk. It is, again, a really lovely arrangement.

    Forgot where I was at the end…. but got there in the end!
