    @leb397 haha! My little helper, Don Don, wanted to be part of the video lol. This was not the new uke from the challenge. Iโ€™m still getting used to the new longneck Soprano Uke as it does not have a strap and Iโ€™m relearning how to keep uke steady without a strap. Hope it will make a debut appearance in an upcoming challenge soon.

    @leb397, thank you so much for that! You are always so supportive and kind in what you share here, and it’s so beautiful that we can all share our creative struggles and victories together here, and get through them, because of how much we love playing uke. I think other people here feel that, too. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’•


    @jbmills07
    , that was so beautiful! Your new uke sounds extra lovely with that song! It definitely sounds better when you play it on Low G, as it was written. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ณ You always capture the feeling of songs so beautifully though! Thank you for sharing! ๐Ÿ˜Š


    @nelsonlin2021
    , I also enjoyed watching your dancing friend! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…

    Thanks Andrew, I will try that. I did use the play along but couldnโ€™t go faster than about 50% and be consistent. Iโ€™ll try the 4 measure loop strategy .

    @jbmills07 – Man, that uke sounds so good! I like the reverb you added too! Playing was awesome! Lots of feeling in your performance. Well done!


    @jody_hendrickson
    – Wonderfully played! You were locked in tightly with the band! Great feel too! And TY for the kind words ๐Ÿ™‚


    @dorabr
    – Great playing! I’m hearing that your uke is tuned incorrectly. It sounds like the G string was tuned up a half step and the A string down a half step. I’d also check the other 2 strings. I’d recommend tuning before recording but also each time you pick up the uke ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh wow this is amazing, I can’t believe it!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ This is actually the first time I am winning something, and I couldn’t be happier with the uke – it is such a beautiful model, plus I don’t own a tenor uke yet, so this is just perfect! ๐Ÿ˜ป
    A big thank you to you, Andrew, and the whole team for making this possible, you’ve really made my day!! Thanks so much โ˜บ๏ธ
