    @dianna, hahaha, those puns, you can’t escape them! πŸ˜‚ By the way, I posted a video showing how I turn a tune into clawhammer in the “uke talk” forum if you want to see it. πŸ˜…


    @ldarrow
    , that’s a really good strategy, especially with the logic of having another week to incorporate the feedback before the next challenge starts. Clever, indeed. I also try not to wait until the last minute because of the recording anxiety, but I like your logic. Thank you! I love the melody of S(tr)ummer Nights a lot. You have fun with Summertime Swing, that one is also very lovely! 😊

    Nice job @deadbuggy. If I remember correctly you were having either hand or wrist issues last month. Glad to see you are on the mend. I always enjoy watching your performances

    Hi,

    This month I worked on Syncopated Speed Picking. I tried the fingerpicking as well as the pick methods but found the pick sounded best on this uke.

    @lhamilton – Excellent playing and timing, Linda! The only thing I can suggest is to target the 16th note variation in the A melody. See if you can get that a little bit cleaner.

    Here are Mini lessons 014 and 016.
    014 is still a little fast for me but I’m improving.
